Hiya folks. I'm melliferal...and I'm a beekeeper.
I've been a beekeeper for around 5 years. I really love bees. I can't stop keeping them. I have trouble not talking about them as well, which has taken a hit on what fleeting social life I once had. I figured that if I found some beekeeping forums and confined my apicultural musings to such places, my family and friends might start letting me hang out with them again. I honestly don't understand why they don't find bees as fascinating as I do. Weirdos.
I chose to register here because I heard that this was THE MOST AWESOME BEEKEEPING FORUM THE INTERNET HAS EVER SEEN, and also because it was the second hit on a Yahoo! search for "beekeeping forum". I'm also happy to see that this forum is Tapatalk compatible - which is great because I'm taking college classes, and the ability to stop paying attention to my work and browse a beekeeping forum on my iPod instead will really come in handy this semester; I intend to take advantage of that feature. Ohhh yes indeed.
I am on Facebook! As "Jake Orosi"; but I've used this name on a few forums and am somewhat accustomed to being called "Mel", so that's fine. I am also on Twitter (no, I don't spam the service) as "Checkmite". Notice: my use of that name is a long story, and has nothing to do with any commercial products whose brand name is strikingly similar; nor do I have anything positive or negative to say about any such product, if it exists, because I haven't used it. Don't consider it an endorsement.
I look forward to participating!
