After nearly nine months of lists and an increasingly demanding schedule, I would like to pass on the list-keeping duties to another Bee. If you are interested in becoming the next Listkeeper, please familiarize yourself with these rules.
To become a candidate, please PM me (1) a proposal blurb under 50 words for QueenSP11’s proposal story (which she graciously agreed to let me use as a writing topic) and (2) a few sentences explaining why you would like to be the Listkeeper. Applications will be accepted until Saturday, October 19th. I will announce the new Listkeeper in my final list post on Monday, October 21st. If you are selected, I will provide you via email with list templates and instructions on how to format the lists.
Questions? Post them below and I will answer them.
