Whoops, seems I rocked a boat.

I did a bad, apparently.

I’ve always known recipes to be for sharing. You make something someone likes, you pass it on. Great! That’s what I’ve been doing here lately. I have recently started following a keto diet for a multitude of reasons (funny enough, none of those is for weight loss) and I have a number of friends and family who are on the ride with me.

I like to revisit recipes after I made them and see what kind of improvements I can make (because there are ALWAYS improvements that can be done. People have different tastes, preferences and needs, afterall.) But some of these blogging sites make their recipes near impossible to share.

While I have absolutely no problems linking directly to simple blogs and recipe sites, there are some websites that are simply overwhelming with unnecessary info and novel-sized stories, photos and a multitude of ads and popups that make navigation difficult. These flashing, distracting advertisements prior to and WITHIN the recipe have caused me to miss steps and ingredients, and it is not a good platform for me to return for the recipe. My eyes have become extremely sensitive to light, especially flashing light, and it’s bad enough that I have to fight through double vision and all of that, but to have to look at small fonts through GIANT ads and photos is difficult. Also, friends and family I have spoken with feel the same as I do. And, so, I am posting my favorite recipes on my own blog for ME to find later. Yep, there are ads at the bottom of my blog now and again – that’s because it’s a free platform for me to share on. But not because I’m making a profit from those ads. They are minimal, which means I can find and follow the recipe I know where to find with ease.

I have linked to other recipe sites before WITH FULL CREDIT TO THE AUTHORS and they (ok, only one) has decided to threaten me with copyright and whatnot. I have reworded the recipes and added changes I’ve made. I suggest, if you want me to link directly to your site instead of posting it to my own, to minimize the extreme amount of annoyances that make your site not worth sharing because it’s so hard to follow. Recipes are meant to be shared, enjoyed and loved without the stress and hassle of trying to FIND the damned thing to begin with.

If you have put your hard work into making these recipes, I WANT to share them, and WANT to send people to you – but if I have a hard time reading them, I’m compiling them in a way that makes them easier FOR ME to read. While I wanted to link directly back to the authors, the authors have made it very difficult to view their page and to give them credit. If this offends you, I really don’t know what to say, except THANK YOU for making my tummy happy, and I hope you find fulfillment in your endeavors. I truly do.

Do your readers a favor and make it easier for them to follow you.

Some of my favorite, easy to read, no (or, at least, minimal) nonsense websites include AllrecipesDiet DoctorDelish, ketologic and healthfulpursuit. You won’t find the recipes from those pages posted here, because they are links that I can easily read through and will link directly to those sites from my meal list or Instagram account. The only ones I post here are from those sites that I just can’t deal with, so that I can reference back to them more easily. If you really don’t like that I hate visiting your website that much, then perhaps find out WHY and revisit your methods. I’d be happy to help you by answering honestly, but please don’t approach me with copyright mumbo jumbo. You are real, as am I, and we both have our reasons for doing what we do.

And here’s some info for recipe copyrights. Truth is, the only thing I really crossed the line on was that I used their photo for the journal entry header, which had their website link on it – something I did intentionally to show who I got the recipe from. The only other thing I copied from there was the recipe and directions. Which, if you read up on it, doesn’t really constitute a copyright infringement. That’s been fixed, and any changes I made to the recipes have been made and the instructions rewritten.

EDIT: I’m adding links back in, because I don’t feel comfortable not crediting the original authors (although some of the recipes can be found on multiple websites, so it’s hard to know which one is the original). But regardless, most of the time, I’ve modified recipes and not created my own, so I’m happy to attribute credit for my starting point.
