Welcome Hog's Head!

By
Real Estate Agent with HER Realtors

welcomeWelcome to Active Rain

Hog's Head ... that's not even his real name... His name is Mike "Hog's Head" Bosela and few people besides me call him "Hogs-head, Hogs Head or "Hog's Head.."

Mike Bosela is a blogger from Michigan (the mitten state... I am guessing that Edwardsburg is near the wrist?  west side of the state down near Indiana? ) because his website says "Michiana Homes For You?"  Mike Bosela's website.  Michigan Indiana border? 

Lots of place names, Michiana, Shavehead Lake, Edwardsburg (on Active Rain Mike Bosela is the king of Edwardsburg) his weather thing on his blog says "Vandalia MI"....his website has the Edwardsburg MI weather.       

Mike Bosela's other blog is a RealTown Blog, that's where I know Mike from.  His blog is a community blog.... not a blog to blog to other bloggers...about other bloggers for traffic...or comments.  It is community blogging (what a concept!)  Mike does it well on his blog.

Mike Bosela won an award on my other blog for the best use of a hog's head on a blog. Please visit his blog quietly don't disturb the locals...on Shavehead Lake. 

Yesterday I did an entry on the Active Rain RealTown Bloggers group to lure Mike to Active Rain.  The entry is about adding polls to your RealTown Blog.

Looking up spelling it's either hog's head or hogshead... so as a proper noun it is Hog's Head or Hogshead.

Scott a hogshead is a unit of measure.. according to Wikipedia....  I think the thing on Mike Bosela's blog is a hog's head, therefor to me his nickname is Hog's Head.  I know I forgot the ' when I called him "Hogs Head" on my blog.  

I think I saw the photo of the hog's head on Mike's blog and said on BlogTalk something like "Nice hogs head" and he thought I was being sarcastic or insincere about his hog's head...  

It is a great photo.

Welcome, Mike!  I recall us (you, Maureen, Bonnie, me, and a few other RT BlogTalkers) exchanging e-mails this past summer.  Glad to see you here.  Looking forward to your first blog post.

Maureen, I imagine you did it accidentally, but you did not provide a link to Mike Bosela in your post... I had to do a search.

Maybe I wrote this before Mike's page was up....In fact I know I wrote it b4 but I meant to link once it went up.... I could see he had joined but could not find his page for awhile.... Thanks Leanne.

I edited it in now.

Hi Everyone! 

Thanks for the warm welcome!  Maureen's been inviting me to join the AR crowd for a while now- when I saw she had "polling" on her RT blog, and emailed her asking how she did it, she dangled the AR carrot in front of me again, and said if I join AR, she'll tell me how to implement it..  So here we are! Evil person.. <kidding>- Maureen- did you get credit for inviting me to join?- I used the second link you sent me, and your not showing up as "invited by" on my page (yet)- just want to make sure you get the credit..

Yes, "Michiana" is the term for my locale- Michigan / Indiana border- I'm licensed in both states (I can alomost hit a golf-ball into Indiana from where I live (almost)).. If you're looking at the top of your left hand, we're in the lower left corner..  (Everyone in MI, when asked where they live, will point to a location on the top of their left hand- LOL)..  Not a native MI resident- born and raised in Cleveland, OH (Go Browns?)..  We're just above Elkhart, IN, just East of South Bend (Notre Dame)..  Elkhart is the "RV Capital" of the world..  Folks who live in Southern Indiana / Northern Kentucky refer to their locale as "Kentuckiana".. <GRIN>

Well, all for now- Thanks again for the welcome, and Maureen, for your "persistence"- have a feeling this is going to be a lot of fun!  Great group of folks here!

Happy New Year to all, may 2007 be wonderful and prosperous!

Live Well, Laugh Often, Love Much!

Mike "Hog's Head" Bosela

Mike I got credit... when you use the AR invite on Active Rain you get the photo op on the lower corner of the persons profile.  When you send out the link in an email, post it in a blog to snag members... you don't get the photo op... which I assume is a link.  Either way works for me.

I could tell you were joining because you showed up in my points before I could find your profile. 

I was in Michigan last weekend... saw the hand thing in action... You are in good company on Active Rain, Maureen Francis, Stefan Scholl, Joshua Plummer, Sara Lipnitz and a bunch more all live and work in the mitten state. There is a Michigan group... hey if there is an Indiana group you can be in both.
