I know a lot of bloggers who post teasers about their recipes on their various social media channels. It seems to be quite an effective strategy for them. For me…not so much. It’s rather a scary prospect, actually. If by chance I happen to mention something that catches the fancy of a reader, I won’t hear the end of it. I will get hint after hint, prod after prod, until I break down and post the darn thing! Oh yes, there is a particular reader who does this and she knows who she is. And I love her dearly for it, because that kind of devotion is pretty darn flattering. Who knew my recipes could inspire such a following?
The low carb, gluten-free crab cakes were one such recipe. I mentioned them offhand on Facebook, but I had agreed to save them for one of my August contributions to A Sweet Life Diabetes Magazine. A Sweet Life and I have grown up together, if you will. Way back when I was a relatively new blogger, they reached out and asked if they could use one of my recipes. They also encouraged me to take a stab at writing some of my first feature articles. They have always been wonderfully supportive of me and I hope I can say the same of my attitude toward them. I love their mission of diabetes awareness, and of supporting the diabetes online community. I love their approach; it’s real, it’s sometimes gritty, and it doesn’t sugar-coat the truth. Sugar-free diabetes awareness – I can dig it. Since I have my own frustrations with conventional nutritional advice, I am delighted that they embrace the low carb lifestyle as whole-heartedly as I do. To this end, I have always let them have free reign with republishing my recipes in full, no strings attached.
But now we’ve come to a little arrangement where I will be contributing on a regular basis, twice a month. These will be original recipes, the content solely owned by them. Which means that you, my dear reader, will only get a little teaser here and then you will need to click through to A Sweet Life for the full recipe. Can you dig it?
