In fact it started out in the late '90s at Geocities, before I eventually moved on to my own domain.
I sometimes post my recipes at DC, but within a few days DC pushes me out in the page ranks and the traffic goes to DC instead of to my own site. (Page rank is when you google something the first item in your results is page rank 1, second is rank 2, etc.) Some of my recipes (particularly my Thai recipes) occupy #2 or #3 page ranks which both pleases me and mystifies me, because I'm higher in the page ranks (for specific recipes) than some of the big professional sites!
So I prefer to not post my own recipes at DC in order to not kill my own website. From time to time I post my recipes at DC anyway but the more I post the lower my website ranks and traffic gets. I also have a policy of not promoting my website on other websites such as DC which is why you see only a very occasional link to my site. I'm sure most of you can figure out my website, or otherwise those who are interested can PM me for the URL.
Meanwhile I really enjoy exchanging recipe ideas and food talk here at Discuss Cooking, and in fact in my opinion it's the best cooking site on the Internet.
p.s. I'm happy to post my recipe pictures here at DC. When I get the pictures for each recipe perfected they're going on my website. At present I have almost no pictures at all. I'm working to eventually have a picture for every recipe, currently about 80 recipes posted. Anybody who wants my recipes corresponding to the pictures can google it or send me a PM for the exact URL of that recipe. Something must be working right because google will get you to most of my recipes. However some things like Twice Baked Potatoes are so popular that you'll never find my site because even I can't find my site. I think last time I googled the competition for Twice Baked Potatoes I was out to #80-#90 and still hadn't found my page. I got tired of looking.
