Sadly, there are still far too few CPAs/CAs who blog. I've read that about 20% of all business blogs are law related.
So, where is the CPA profession?
Folks, I think it's time to pay attention. It's pretty hard to find accounting blogs but I pulled together the following list. I have not included blogs that are abandoned (no posts in past 6 months) or those by media. If anybody knows of others, they're welcome in the comments section.
Here are the blogs by CPAs, for the public (i.e. not just for other CPAs) that I could find:
Reed Tinsley's blog for health care niche (EXCELLENT)
From Greg's Head a technology blog by PKF in Texas (newish)
Corporate Governance blog by Citrin Cooperman in NY (very new)
Solo Accountant Reporter blog by Jeff Moore on managerial and forensic accounting tips, news, views & related resources
Tax Blagger in the UK (well done and with the humor you'd expect from our friends across the pond)
Roth & Co CPA Blog Tax Update blog with frequent, interesting and varied dialogue
The Vanilla Accounting Blog Info for the general public, couple posts a month, good "voice"
Tick Marks by Dan Meyer, accounting faculty (seems about half for cpas, half for public)
CPA Sense by Milt Baker, retired MI CPA blogging since 2004
Tax Guru--Ker$tetter Letter Blogging for the public since 1999(!?) and regularly since 2001
Accounting for Non-Accountants Blog by John Day (rarely posts)
Business Valuation Blog Eva Lang is probably one of the best known CPA bloggers doing the blog thing since 2002
Fraud Files by practice specialist CPA Tracy Coenen
Other CPA blogs (more for CPAs than for the public):
Big4Guy Confessions, Thoughts, Observations and Musings of a Big4Guy (very thorough)
Dave Rachford's CPA Marketing Center Blog Sharing his tax accounting marketing experiences with other CPAs.
CPA Firm Technology Blog by CPA & technology advisory, Brian Tankersley
The Tech Gap by CPA & technology advisor, Gregory LaFollette
And accountants, if this doesn't get your attention, it certainly should!!! There's a lot of accounting-related stuff being discussed in lawyer blogs and by other competitors. There are scores of them. Here are just a few:
Death and Taxes blog

Blogs about services CPAs offer but are by service providers who are not "CPA firms":
