This study paper explores the factors that motivate school principals to blog and the effectiveness of those blogs in terms of instructional and technology leadership. Participants were school principals who blog and were sent a web-based survey. Fifty responded. Results indicate that principals blog to communicate to others, including parents, staff, other principals and the school community. Respondents felt that blogs do support their role as instructional and technology leaders of their school. Advice for other principals thinking about blogging, was to "Just do it!"
