It's a conservative estimate, but I figure that during the seven years I've spent writing about the accounting profession, I've averaged about 5 stories per week, adding up to 260 per year, or 1,820 stories for my entire accounting journalism career.

I've attended approximately 40 conferences, paid the tab (or been treated to) about 700 business lunches and dinners, interviewed over 5,000 people, and surfed thousands of Web sites in search of interesting industry news or information.
