[Air-L] etiquette for reusing or reposting blog posts

I would tend to doubt that there is a blogosphere-wide standard of
etiquette here (or on most matters, for that matter). I suspect that
most people indicate that the post appears in multiple places, at
least on the less-viewed blog. In some cases, they might also turn off
comments in one place to try to concentrate conversation. In others,
they might simply summarize what they have written something

I've generally used my personal blog to toss everything into, and
often posts that show up on my course blogs, project blogs, etc., go
there too. I haven't been consistent in how, or if, I've noted this,
but have done summaries and full posts, with and without cross-links.
