Moving Your Books Online - Your Stories Wanted

suggestion boxes

I have recently started working on a project, and I'd like your input.

In the past few years, I have been helping people get started with online bookkeeping. Some were just getting started with their business, while others were making a move from an offline application. In all cases, there were obstacles along the way.

I'd like to spend more time on this site focussing on helping as many people with that process as possible. Just getting started with any bookkeeping can be tough, but there are also unique problems with moving your books online.

Here's where you, my amazing readers, come in.

I'd like to hear your stories. Your joys, your pains, your questions, and your answers.

It can be as simple as a couple words, or as detailed as a 500+ word email...your choice. I just want to hear your stories. If you want others to be able to see them too, please leave your answers in the comments below. If not, you can contact me directly instead. Or, if your answer is summed up in less than 140 characters, you can always send me a message on Twitter too.

Here are some examples of questions I'd like you to answer for me.

  1. My favourite cloud-based bookkeeping service is__.
  2. I recently switched from _ to __.
  3. The best/worst thing that happened since I moved my books online is _.
  4. I'm trying to get started online, but I'm really struggling with _.

Feel free to write about these or anything else that comes to mind. My goal here is to come up with some posts and (in the near future) guides that will help you solve some of these common problems.

I'm really looking forward to your responses.
