Be outrageous! Be true to you!on a blog in real life? Rebecca
Princess, what you're talking about is called Online Disinhibition. Here's a posting about it and here's the answer to your question.
The blogosphere is a forum for ideas and play. So, when you come here and start spouting off it's as if you put up a soapbox on a "real world" street, you're going to be kidded and challenged and you have to be ready to take it if you are going to thrive.
And, actually, as Al Levitt said, you should be pleased that people notice you enough to criticize you. And, here's why.
I was on the phone with a journalist from the Wall Street Journal and we were looking at some of my postings on Gen Y. When he saw my quotations from the Ryans he immediately asked me how to get in touch with those guys.
It wasn't because what they said was smart or right but because once Gen Y is in the news, media types need to find true believers who are ready to articulate the party line in the most extreme way.
You fall into that camp, too. And I honestly suggest that you stay there. Because that's what makes you marketable.
So don't feel bad if people on RecruitingBloggers point out your errors. Just press on and look on us as part of your publicity machine.
Notice that this is quite different from what I advised in my original reply to this posting. I encouraged you to see things my way but that's not a money making idea unless you decide to market yourself as a former Gen Y jihadist who has now seen the light. Remember, outrageous people are interesting. Ordinary people aren't. That's obvious isn't it, because, really, how many average, sensible people get into the news?
At any rate, you must know that even if its for the "wrong" reasons we on RB are among your biggest fans.
