This recognition from Discover Business further validates the value of the thought-provoking writing that our staff has shared with our membership for more than four years. It is an effective means to communicate and educate with a personal touch.

The Indiana CPA Society staff blog, titled "I was just thinkin' …" was recently named as one of the Best 200+ MBA and Business Blogs of 2016. The recognition comes from Discover Business, an online source of in-depth business and education resources. The blogs honored cover the business disciplines of human resources, management, accounting/finance, marketing, business to business, and other business-related topics.

The “I was just thinkin’ …” blog was launched more than four years ago in April 2012. New blogs are posted every two weeks on Thursdays. Indiana CPA Society President & CEO Gary Bolinger, CAE, is the primary blogger. Bolinger was named as one of the 100 Most Influential People in Accounting for 2015 by Accounting Today, a major national trade publication of the accounting profession.

Other bloggers on the site include Senior VP & COO Jennifer Briggs, CAE, and Vice Presidents Jenny Norris, CPA, CGMA, Sherrill Rude, CAE and Dave Shatkowski. Topics cover a wide range of topics including profession issues and trends, learning and skill development, human resources and staffing, legislative and regulatory matters, complexity, knowledge sharing, time management, diversity, the future, and of course, INCPAS programs and events.

"Our goal with ‘I was just thinkin' …' from the beginning was to inform, engage and entertain our members throughout Indiana,” said Bolinger. "I am confident that we have accomplished that goal, and this recognition from Discover Business further validates the value of the thought-provoking writing that our staff has shared with our membership for more than four years. It is an effective means to communicate and educate with a personal touch."

The number of subscribers to the I was just thinkin' ... blog has grown steadily to more than 1,300 currently. The number of views on individual blogs has also grown over time with the top blogs at over 1,000 views and several others in the 300 to 700 range. INCPAS members and other interested business professionals also regularly comment on the various blogs.

INCPAS maintains two other blogs as well. The second, a member-written blog called "The Smoke Detector" addresses both technical and non-technical accounting topics. The third is from its CPA Center of Excellence®, a wholly-owned subsidiary. The COE blog covers topics such as critical business skill development, competency-based learning and collaboration.
