I can't imagine having to re-type everything into the forum page. A link is so much easier.
Copy and paste aren't that hard to do.
Not sure who this post is in refernce to, but I'll admit when I first started my blog, I approached it all wrong. I did exactly what the OP said and wrote something dumb like "if you want the recipe, go to my blog". I was called out here and on other forums for doing that, but I oh so desperately wanted to have a a high traffic count on my blog. I wanted to be successful. And popular. And for everybody to like me and gush over my food. Roll eyes.
When the real reason I started a blog in the first place was to give back and to help others after learning so much over the years on various forums. And so I could have a place I could record my cooks for quick reference later on in case I forgot what I did. Can't tell you how many times I've looked up a recipe at the store because I didn't have a list with me. Or looked to see what temp and how long.
I gave up caring about my internet traffic along time ago, but then I was never in it for the money or fame. Notice I don't have ads? Or sponsors? Or give stuff away? To each his own, I 'spose.
I really should update the blog with some posts, but then again I haven't been cooking anything interesting lately. Burgers, steaks, wings. Normal stuff, nothing worth draggin out a camera and shooting pictures or writing about. Maybe come fall when it cools off and its not 100+ outside and skeeters as big as hummingbirds circling the yard ready to suck all my blood out. Am I ramblin' again? I'm rambling. Sorry about that. I had a point there somewhere. Least I think I did. You may now continue on with your normal scheduled activities.
Oh...one last thing. I have sent certain bloggers PMs on how to handle issues like this on forums. Some have listened, some haven't. Some were appreciative, some weren't. I've done what I could...

Yes you are. For some reason you will forever be known to me as "Brother Husker". That name has stuck. I think we know who is responsible for that!
what's all the fuss about?

I am not sure either.
To me it matters not if you post it here or I click through to your blog. There is a lot of interesting egged food out there and I like to look at it all. My wife has a blog she just started and I have a added a few cooks, it seems like a nice place to record what I am doing for reference like Griffin mentioned and share with the masses. Big Green Craig got a good ribbing by some over a post just trying to sell t-shirts but I will still click through to his blog, his cooks are interesting.
