It’s been about a month since I announced a new CASTLE project: to get 100 new principal blogs up and running within 100 days.

To date we’ve had 43 request for new principal blogs. All 43 have been created; 16 are already active (i.e., the principal has started posting). We’ve also created blogs for two central office administrators that requested them.

Over the next few days we will update our list of known principal blogs to reflect these new numbers. We’ve also found out about a few other principal bloggers that were previously unknown to us, so that’s great too!

Please keep encouraging your local administrators to participate in this project. Blogging can have a number of tangible benefits for principals. The link to the project home page is

If just one principal in your local area decided to try blogging, that would be a great start!
