And then there's more!

As we start our group projects, its possible you might consider using a blog to manage those group research projects. Jointly written blogs are very common now!

Dan's blog on global economics has lots of great entries( For example, did you know that a federal organization is redefining what it means to be a "supervisor?" If you read Dan's blog, you would know! While this doesn't sound like much, it is important, because if your job is classified as supervisory, you lose the ability to belong to a union, and you may lose the right to overtime pay. I remember when I got my first "supervisory" job as an Assistant Manager at Pizza Hut at the age of 21. I was thrilled with my new title and salary, until I discovered the company wanted me to help keep labor costs down by asking me to work 60-70 hours a week for my "salary," i.e. no overtime.

A great blog--lots of entries, but I'd like to see some visual content.

Zach's blog is a nice beginning--but it needs more entries ( I like the personal references to his own business experiences.

Melinda's Accounting Blog ( continues to have tons of great entries on the profession: jobs, companies, resources, etc. It could use some visual content, but it is a great blog!
