Congratulations are in order. Big Bear got the great idea to hire an Editor-In-Chief to handle the Bee Smart website. So beecause I proved myself so handy at beeing a, well let’s face it, I was a mascot, I have been given a shot at running the whole show here.
Life as a drone isn’t all that it’s cracked up to bee. Yes, I know I’m small for a drone and yes, he makes me wear that prosthetic stinger. Still , it’s significantly better than life in the hives. Sure, there’s all the hang time with the fellas and you get to hang out in pretty much any hive you want. It’s kind of like what you call living like a rock star. All the girls giving you attention, free food whenever you want, crash anyplace, chasing all the best bee girls, every one of them is like a queen.
Oh sure, we die when we finally manage to catch up and spend some quality time with one of those queens. But hey, what a way to go, am I right?
But then, oh they don’t tell you about this when you crawl out of the cell day one. Oh no, when the weather goes cold, it’s like zombee apocalypse time for drones in the hive. It’s like every single worker is out to kill you. IT’S CRAZY I SAY!!!
So, thanks, but no thanks. I found my way out of that craziness and landed a sweet job working for Big Bear here at Bee Smart as the “Public Relations Representative”. Yeah, I was a mascot. That’s alright though. I’ve been reading and watching all kinds of fascinating documentaries on people. This YouTube thing is wild. You humans are a trip.
So here I am, the new Editor-in-Chief of Bee Smart beekeeping project. On the surface, my main job is to keep everyone informed and entertained. “Keep the content flowing like honey.” is what the Bear told me.
Beehind the scenes though, really, have you ever tried to keep a bunch of A Type personality beekeepers like the bunch we have here on task? It’s like herding Aphids. No cooperation at all, I’m here ta tell ya.
I think you’ll like what we have planned in the upcoming days, weeks and months ahead. Lot’s of news captured from the web, curated and posted here for you. Original articles on anything and everything to do with bees, beekeepers and beekeeping and anything else like honey, beeswax, woodworking, gardening for bees… You get what I mean.
Of course we can’t forget the podcasts. Or the videos. Let’s not forget the monthly newsletter for Patrons too. Whew. I just started this job and I’m already tired just thinking about it. I don’t know now if it was a promotion or punishment.
