Know What You're Getting Yourself Into
When you voluntarily post your work, writing, or thoughts onto the world wide web, you are by definition exposing yourself to the world (or at least anyone that has access to the site you are posting on). Take this into consideration before you put something out there on social media, a blog, etc. If you are writing something that you know in your heart is controversial, that doesn’t necessarily make it wrong to put it out there, but be prepared for the backlash. And don’t act surprised when it comes. This is all a part of learning how to handle your online persona. Having a thick skin is a part of it. The other part of it is understanding how the majority are going to perceive something, and then tailoring your message to reach your audience most effectively.
