I've gotten some questions about what a host needs to do so I thought I would touch on it in here since we are looking for a host.

What is a host?

A host is a board leader; someone who is positive, energetic and supportive; someone who is enthusiastic and passionate about their board subject and wants to share that interest with others.

How Much Time Does it take?

For me I am on frequently anyway, so it doesn't take me much time. However as a host admins ask that due to the high volume of activity on the Due Date Clubs and Playrooms that the hosts of those boards be active at least 3 days a week and make a minimum of 20 posts and 3-5 new topics spread amongst that time period.

What are some of the host responsibilities?
A host should post new topics, reply to others and welcome newbies. A host should keep their board flowing and moving. Hosts also keep things organized by requesting stickies and subforums for their board.

If anyone has any questions, please ask. I encourage everyone that is interested to apply. I love being a JM host, and being cohosts is a lot of fun becuase you get to work with someone and great friendships really do develop. Good Luck to everone that applies.

I would love to see JM open up part of the decision making process to the boards as well. I don't know what or who all is involved in making the decision, but it would be nice for the boards to know who is in the running, what their goals for the board are, and have the opportunity to put in their votes.
