New name, Facebook, preventing copycats

Does anyone else out there have usernames and passwords coming out their wazoo? Hotmail, Yahoo, Blogger, Wordpress, Google+, Facebook...It's hard to know what to use and what to join when all I want to do is connect with readers. So I've been busy over the past few days overhauling the site.

First, I've changed the name. Let's take it out of my kitchen, and into the world. We are now officially SamoaFood.com (because some elo has already taken SamoanFood.com).

Second, I joined Facebook. Yes, had to join the 21st century and get on the 1 billion dollar social network. So if you like Samoan food, and you want to see more recipes and more videos, please click "like".

Third, I've blocked right-click copying of all my content and on Facebook, my photos will be watermarked as per a winning suggestion by Goddess. And if you sneaky buggers find another way to take what's mine and pass it off as yours, then you're just too darned smart for me. Knock yourself out.

For an example of how to reference people's work online, please go to myfudo.com. The lovely ladies there have provided links to all my posts, and referenced my blog countless times. Not to mention the fact that they made Samoan food look so professional!

Happy Cooking everyone!


  1. Thank you so much for mentioning us = )

  2. good on you, better than seeing your work passed off as someone elses....it happens a lot in this crazy blog world!

  3. I just wanted to take a minute to thank you for sharing your recipes. It is soooo hard to get recipes out of people, especially polynesians. I love your site and am so appreciative of all that you do. Faafetai lava!

  4. I busted out laughing at the first sentence/question (so true), but oh no...your stuff still getting pinched? That is always so annoying to hear, but still, all the best on your new site!

  5. myfudo: no prob
    goddess: crazy blog world alright...
    Rita: As a population, we can't keep a secret to save our lives, but when it comes to the recipes, we take 'em to the grave. It's just our way.
    Rowena: It wears me out. I feel like I'm fighting the orcs in Lord of the Rings.

  6. I can't find you on Facebook!! Is it under Samoa Food ???
