Nick Denton on blog etiquette. I've worried about some of this stuff too, especially: What to do about the fact that I'm always repeating myself? I was chatting to a friend the other day, and realized that every topic of conversation was something about which I had already blogged. And he reads my weblog, occasionally. Should I ask whether he has read my weblog recently, and how recently, or would that be presumptious? And should he pretend that my stories are new, or disclose that he's already read them?
