Even though I had been working on AccountingBLOCK for a while, today I announce its launch. Accounting is very near and dear to my heart as I am pursuing my Bachelors in Accounting. I always wanted to start a website related to accounting and finally I decided that the best way I can contribute to the field of accounting is to have a discussion forum where accountants, non-accountants and wanna be accountants can all come and talk, discuss and solve issues/problems related to accounting.
Accounting is a very complex area of business. Every once in a while, someone has a question pertaining to accounting for which an answer might not be readily available. Even if it is available, people don’t really know where to look for it. The idea behind AccountingBLOCK is to have a community of people who deal with accounting on day to day basis and can solve simple and/or complex issues.
There are other accounting forums out there but AccountingBLOCK’s competitive advantage over other websites is that it has something for everyone. Accountants can talk about hardcore accounting issues, students can find out more about accounting, solve homework problems and get access to internship opportunities, and non-accountants can seek help and also help other people out with issues related to accounting. You don’t get that on any other accounting forum!
Because you are reading about AccountingBLOCK on my blog, let me give you an inside scoop. I will very soon launch a program on AccountingBLOCK where members with most credits (you get credits by posting, referring others etc) will be made moderators. You ask, so what? Well, how about getting paid to do something you like? Moderators will be able to earn money by being active on the forums. Payments will be made on monthly basis through PayPal. I will obviously post details later on but don’t wait until then, start posting !
If you have any suggestions for the website, you can go ahead a let me know. If you think something is missing or incorrect let me know. If you want to become a moderator on AccountingBLOCK, let me know and we can arrange a mutual agreement where we both benefit.
