Good morning, Lead Your School readers. This is the 200th post to the column, so I think this is a good time to review our progress and preview some upcoming improvements.

First, the review:

The 1st post was on Monday, February 16, 2009.

The 100th post was on Tuesday, April 14, 2009.

The 200th post is today, June 10, 2009

It has taken 115 days to reach the 200 post milestone.

The 200 posts are more than 111 pages of single spaced text.

The Top 5 key words have been: Leadership (42); Hyper-monitoring (18); Book Recommendation (17); Data Use (15); E. Don Brown (15).

There have been 89 reader comments. Thank you, and keep it up. As this blog is becoming more of a dialogue, I think it is much more interesting for all of us.

There are 120 e-mail subscribers. Thank you!

There have been over 3,400 site hits.

All of this is incredibly exciting; especially when you consider that just 115 days ago, every number was 0.

Now for the preview of things that are coming soon:

Soon there will be a link to the Lead Your School campus support website. You can visit the site at The site is still in early development, but there are resources there (or will soon be there) that you may find helpful. These including my personal book study notes that I have shared with principals for years. I’ll post a couple each month to keep it fresh. I will also upload the audio files from presentations that I have conducted.

A Little Blatant Self Promotion:

First, if you like the site and you haven’t signed up for the e-mail subscription, please do. I find that it’s much easier to write to people than it is to write to web hits.

Second, if you like the site and find it useful, tell three other people. Again, this blog is much more interesting as a dialogue.


Thank you so much for reading and responding. Who knows what we will discuss in the next 100 posts.

Think. Work. Achieve.

Your turn…
