I am **very** firmly of the opinion that cross posting original stuff from one site to another ought to be a considered decision on each occasion. Yes, that’s just me. It could be you too. Add a little friction; you know it makes things better.

@jeremycherfas Agree. But one cannot select that option in individual posts; can it? Once you configure cross posting it applies to all posts, right?

@jeremycherfas Yes. I’ve been thinking about friction a lot recently. We build tools and processes to make our lives faster and easier, but rarely do we design for friction, to force thought and reflection before action.

@jeremycherfas Agreed. I have my various blogs feed in to here, but that's all. I could post to Twitter/Fb, as I've set that up, but it's not often I will want to. Somewhat like my real-life friends, my social networks don't overlap a lot. (ADN refugees excepted).

@sumudu And that is why I will not be Ana Lang cross posting anywhere that does not give me a per post option. Except Inown to here, and I’m working on that.
