My blogging idol David Albrecht has more to say on this question:
It might very well be related to the disconnect between accounting research and the world of practice. Much of the elite accountics research at the current time has no tie to the real world (some of these researchers know little about real world dynamics). Certainly, the professional world disdains academic accounting research. If academic bloggers write about the topics for which they have passion, perhaps it is no surprise that they wouldn’t blog about the professional world. There is no market for their insights.
Whether accounting academics are boring or not, there is a huge disconnect between our academic work, and especially our research, and practice on the ground. It seems like accounting professors don’t have very much to say to practice, and practitioners don’t seem to believe they can learn much from us.
Perhaps it would make sense for bloggers to begin to disseminate the volumes of accounting research literature so that practitioners can make sense of it all.
