The Internet, for better or worse, brings people together. The Internet, for better or worse, also lets people converse about topics that are important to them. It’s done wonders for cats and conspiracy theorists, for example.
It’s worked out well for accountants, too. Here at Sift Media, we’ve built two of the largest communities of accountants on the web to serve the profession as a place for information, news and discussion.
Today, I’m happy to announce the newest way that AccountingWEB is serving its readers: AccountingWEB Forums.
AWEB Forums allows you to start conversations, ask questions, seek advice, recommend solutions and engage your fellow members of the accounting community the way you want. All you have to do is register with us (or log in) and you can post to your heart’s content. If you’re not ready to register, no problem, you can still comment using Disqus. What's important is that AWEB Forums is a place where conversations occur and accountants can get solicit information and potential solutions to the challenges they face.
AccountingWEB has been delivering you news and insights for…well, longer than I know...and there’s no plan to change that, but now you have the chance to play editor or blogger too by choosing the topics that you want to discuss or asking the questions you want answered. We can only cover so much content in a day but with your help, we can broaden the topics that are covered here and we may find even better story ideas in your threads.
Yes, we'll be keeping an eye on things and from time to time you might even see one of us drop in to comment or throw out a question. But AWEB Forums is intended to give you a voice to direct the conversations on this site. We think this is the best way to meet the content and information needs of the accounting community.
If you’ve heard enough and are ready to jump in, visit the AWEB Forums homepage to see what this is all about; comment on the latest thread or start one your own. We think you’ll get the hang of it quickly. We hope you enjoy yourselves but in the event that you simply hate everything about it, email us so we can make things better.
Hope to see you in there, mixing it up.
