My name is Mark Goodfield. Welcome to The Blunt Bean Counter ™, a blog that shares my thoughts on income taxes, finance and the psychology of money. I am a Chartered Professional Accountant and a partner with a National Accounting Firm in Toronto.

Duck Quackers and Binge Writing

With the latest A&E reality show about a family of duck call manufacturers in the bayou, it is not beyond comprehension that A&E’s next series will be a bloggers intervention series. Assuming the series is made and the first episode profiles me; I am sure during my intervention, I will scream out, “yes, I am a binge writer”. You see, I often write 4-5 blogs at a single writing and 8-10 over a few days, then write absolutely nothing for a couple weeks.

This year while off for the Christmas holidays, with the knowledge that tax season was fast approaching and that I also had some managing partner issues to deal with, I super-binged and wrote essentially all my blogs for January to April (save my confessions of a tax accountant and budget blog posts). 

I still have a few posts remaining, but my blog post inventory is fairly depleted. In addition, post tax season, my inventory of energy is also much depleted. Thus, whether you care or not, I felt compelled to inform you that I will be posting less frequently (typically only once a week with occasional weeks off) until the end of the summer, at which point I hope to be re-energized to write more often.

See you next week when I blog about 'A Family Vacation-A Memory Worth not Dying for".
