Edgy blog launch from...an Accounting Firm?!

Pkfblog300_1At first I couldn't believe it...an accounting firm using a hip, trendy campaign to launch a blog!  But it ia true -- Pannell Kerr Forster (PKF) of Houston, Texas, was kicking off fr0m gre3g's h3ad with an edgy direct mail campaign that you would expect from dot-com company.

Written by Greg Price, CPA, CITP, CISA, CFE (what do all those letters mean?) director of the Consulting Solutions Group of PKF, the blog covers the intersection of accounting and technology.  PKF describes itself as forward-thinking entrepreneurs dedicated to middle market companies.

The blog offers sections like Navision (software for e-commerce, supply chain, manufacturing and project accounting), Tecknowledgy and Week in Geek

What makes this so stunning is that accounting firms have been so woefully behind in the blogosphere.  In January I checked Technorati.com, which stated that in the prior 30 days there were only 182 posts about accounting on blogs relating to business -- on the entire Web.

Lawyers far outpaced the number of posts and blogs.  But after seeing fro0m gre3g's h3ad, law firms can take a page from this forward-thinking accounting firm.
