In response to two recent comments. No, I definitely do NOT tell potential employers about my blog and hope that they do not have the time to Google me or ferret it out on their own. Since my name is so commonplace, I think that works in my favor in such instances. Additionally, I do not have my book on my resume, so unless they are very careful media-watchers, people I am interviewing with usually do not know who I am or what controversy I may have caused. At least, that's what I hope. Though, really, I suppose you never know what determines whether or not you get a job in the end. I am a little concerned about potential employers stumbling across this, but frankly, I don't know how to remove this from Google or whatever.

Secondly, Greg, thanks for the compliments. And, no, I really do not let other people's negativity impact my life. But I think that humans in general have an initial, gut response to insults or character assaults. So if someone insults, rejects or bashes me, then, yeah, my initial reaction is to put my dukes up. And since I am a writer, I guess that this vehicle is my first line of defense. I am definitely going to ignore these people from now on.
