There are a few downsides to having a blog. People sometimes get mad at you for things you write about them, either because they don’t think you got it right, or because they think you did. Sometimes people leave nasty little notes in the comments. And there’s always the chance that your employer won’t appreciate your candor and will give you the old heave-ho.
But this here’s a new one on me: Last night, I went out with my cousin and had a couple of bottles of wine, as you do, and at one point, I tried to tell him a story. He interrupted me.
“I already know that. I KNOW THAT. You wrote about it on your blog,” he said. “You’re just quoting yourself from your blog.”
