Hey Peggy,

I returned to Discuss Cooking just recently in frustration of the lack of interest in real cooking here. Plus having to third party upload pics. It seems my recent unearthing of some LC threads there has stimulated the administrators (I'm sure its others as well, but there was no LC Forum just days ago when I returned) to create a brand new Low Carb Keto forum section.

http://www.discusscooking.com/forums/f172/

It'd be another place for you to spread your knowledge, plug your blog, books, etc., and I've really enjoyed and appreciated your activity here. We share a love of cooking and thats what DC is supposed to be about.

Full disclosure, I left two years ago because as is with many forum sites, a few senior members who are busybody nitpickers who just would not let some stuff go without an argument, aggravated me to the point I just threw my hands up and never went back. I seem to remember you mentioning something similar at another LC site...I have stopped posting at a smoking meat forum for similar reasons...that and on that smoking site, it seems every other thread gets hijacked by people pushing the products the owner of the site purveys.

Also, I noticed there is an ignore button there too, so I'm going to give it a whirl. Anyone acts like a jerk and they will just be ignored. They are a bit of a stickler on posting recipes by others, meaning they protect your rights as an originator of a recipe and frown on anyone copy and pasting recipes. I'd like to post some variations of your recipes I have done if you dont mind. I have either changed up some ingredients or the directions so not a direct steal from your blog. I'm not trying to make a blog or compete, just share things I've learned and done and you've been a big part of that recently. I would always include a link to the original recipe just like you do.

I'm Chef Kenny on DC. Come on over to this fledgling forum...your cooking, as well as mine, qualifies for the rest of the site too quite often. Not just low carb...but rich and delicious...and just happens to be low carb!

Well, you're very observant about little interest in recipes or posting same here. You get a few views, but rarely a comment, positive or negative. I also belong to a fledgling group called LowCarbNeighborhood. Just started up in June when LowCarbFriends (owned/operated by Netrition.com) shut down for no reason anyone can deduce. I left LCF much earlier because not only did they require third party photo hosting, the site owners wouldn't allow you to post any links, to your own site or others. After getting my hand slapped there a couple times, I walked away and said "Enough."

The new LowCarbNeighborhood has some of the nicest, most creative and clever cooks on the internet, Ken. LOVE chatting with those cooks. But the site is still new and not all of the great cooks at the old LCF have migrated over to the new LCN forums. I think you'd like LCN as well, as those folks are really into kitchen experimenting. Though I haven't posted all that much there yet, I do check out the activity daily. I hope all the old-timer cooks at LCF eventually join the new forum. The admins are nice; you can post links both to your own site or others; and you can upload photos direct from your PC to a forum post (no 3rd-party needed).

I never mind folks posting recipes that one of mine has inspired, Ken. If it's the exact recipe, credit back to me is always appreciated.

Ken, I'm glad you posted the link to the KetoLowCarb forum at DC. I have been a member there for years but mostly read, seldom post.

Hi, Carol. I saw your post at DC right above a question regarding site rules I tried to get an answer to. Not a good indicator when nobody answers a question in 3 hours, so pretty light traffic there, for sure.

I went out and took a look at their site rules, Ken, and because I promote LOW CARBING AMONG FRIENDS cookbooks on my blog (although I opted to not get paid for doing so from day one 4 years ago), I can't ever post my recipes at DC without the same copy/paste routine and third party hosting I have to deal with here. No links are allowed to a for-profit site. The hoops you have to jump through at some forums to share a recipe with their community has cut way back on my posting here and elsewhere. And then all too often, there seems to be little to no interest in the recipes, so hardly worth the time really. I'm going to stick with LowCarbNeighborhood forums for now for the lion's share of my recipe sharing outside of my blog. At least there I can link to my website for follow-on questions re: a recipe and I don't have to use a photo hosting site. Can upload direct from my PC. What I like so much here and why I keep coming back is reading the LC Research & Studies sub-forum.
