If you’re looking for the top accounting bloggers or accounting blogs to follow, you’ve come to the right place.

Below, you’ll find a hand-picked, curated list of my favorite 27 accounting blogs that all accountants, partners, small business owners, and firm owners should follow to stay ahead of the curve.

Without further ado, let’s jump in.

Criteria Used to Compile the Best Accounting Blogs List

Before we get into the list, there are a few criteria that I used to compile this list of best accounting blogs. Each of the blogs below:

  1. Must be updated regularly
  2. Are geared for accountants running an accounting firm
  3. Can be blogs from software companies, individuals, or media outlets
  4. Get bonus points for providing actionable, helpful content
  5. Must have written articles (ie. vlogs, podcasts, etc. aren’t included)

With these simple criteria in place, let’s proceed to the list!

The Top Accounting Blogs to Follow

Here’s the list in no particular order:

1) Accounting Today

AccountingToday is definitely the juggernaut in the accounting blogging world. There’s tons of new content released daily with an informative blog and current trends and something to suit every kind of accounting professionals’ interest. I tend to get a lot of my accounting news from here.

2) AccountingWEB

AccountingWeb is another very popular blog in the accounting business with a very big following. They are one of many that have the best accounting blogs and the content is skewed towards those running accounting firms and centers around more practical information.

4) Going Concern (and their Accounting Bloggers)

GoingConcern Accounting blogger

I’m a fan of the GoingConcern blog because it keeps things pretty light-hearted (and they tend to place a few digs on the Big 4). This blog, which also targets accounting students, focuses on accounting news though it does have a bit of a tabloid gossip column vibe to it at times, which does make it pretty entertaining for small business owners.

5) CPA Practice Advisor

  1. Ryan, I’m delighted to be included on this list of Accounting Bloggers Modern Accountants Should Follow. Ryan, I devour and enjoy both your and Blake Oliver’s amazeballs newsletters, so making this list is indeed an honour. Thank you very much!

    Writing is a huge part of who I am. I’ve got cupboards filled with journals dating back to my childhood. I’m constantly scanning, absorbing and reproducing, what interests me, and what I think will be helpful to our accounting and bookkeeping community.

    I Create, Curate, and Co-curate content, producing, on average, two fresh posts a week and updating older articles. Write, Refine, Reuse, Recycle. To that end, I’ll also post an idea that ‘has legs’ but maybe not complete, hoping that it works like a magnet and attracts the rest of the content or inspiration to complete the post. I’m about to sign the contract to write my 10th book, which shall slow me down!

    If there’s information or insight that’ll move Modern Accountants and Bookkeepers a step forward on their journey, I include it in my bi-weekly Accounting Apps newsletter. It’s focused on helping people learn about the Accounting eco-system – if that’s of interest, you can find more out here: http://heathersmithau.com/

    I’m interested in helping Accounting App Content Creators improve their content. If someone has ideas on how or where I could share my tips, I welcome your suggestions. There are so many easy ways to improve – My first suggestion is to activate your RSS feed, such a quick thing to do, and at least 20% of blogs don’t do it – what a waste!

    Ryan, I think you’ve named some great blogs – another one with consistently good content is https://www.xbert.io/blog/page/1/.

    And, let me share another couple of great blogs I like. Fellow Australian Jason Andrews https://sbo.financial/blog/ has a nice mix of entertaining and educational content. Will Farnell’s App Advisory Plus blog https://appadvisoryplus.com/news/

    Thank you again, Ryan; what a fantastic way to start the day!

  2. This is a great list, Ryan. I’m glad to see I already check a few of these on a semi-regular basis. I write a niche blog with tips and tricks for organizations implementing NetSuite. I also write about which systems work best for accounting teams in the biotech space. Again, my blog is on a niche topic but worth checking out, especially for accountants that work with larger clients.

  3. Hi Ryan,

    This is fantastic. I also write a monthly blog for my clients, SMPs. However my approach is slightly different. I recognize there are so many great writers and resources in the profession and leverage this. Each month I find topics and articles I believe will be of interest to my clients and then link to the relevant article explaining why I think the information will be useful to them. Topics cover both technical material and practice management.

    I follow about half of the bloggers on this list and will definitely checking out and following the rest of them. Thanks for the insight.

    Much appreciated, from a fellow member of CPA Canada,

    Kirsten S. Albo
