Do you want a free, continuing education on QuickBooks? Then read a few of the QuickBooks-oriented blogs out there. Here are some of my favorite writers who blog about QuickBooks:
Charlie Russell (c/o the Sleeter Group)
Charlie is a software developer, but he’s also a great tech writer. Most of his articles dig deep into specific features – or problems – in QuickBooks. He’s my go-to guy for information on problems relating to specific version updates.
Just in the last week or so, he announced that he is moving his blog to Sleeter Group’s blog page, so he will be in there with other writers. I’ll be looking for his contributions.
Scott is the owner of Better Bottom Line, and a CPA in Ohio. I met him on Twitter. No, he doesn’t tweet what he is having for lunch. He tweets and blogs about best practices for small businesses using QuickBooks. Scott isn’t afraid to call it the way he sees it, which is good in a blog.
Nancy is the owner of Sunburst Software, a developer of add-on software for contractors using QuickBooks. She also writes a great blog about all kinds of QuickBooks topics — not just contractor issues.
Robert is a pro blogger for Fishbowl Inventory, a software company whose product enhances QuickBooks’ inventory power. So of course, Robert writes a lot about inventory issues. But believe it or not, he can make articles about inventory interesting and even funny sometimes. Recommended.
Even though they make QuickBooks, their blog is not really about QuickBooks. It’s about innovation, technology, HR, entrepreneur issues, online marketing, and much more. Really well done.
OK, this isn’t a blog. It’s a monthly eNewsletter with great QuickBooks content. That’s not surprising, since it is written by Kathy Ivens, the author of most of the “Official Guide” books about QuickBooks. Check out the archive issues on her page and subscribe if you like it. Best part? It’s free.
