    Great post.

    Anyone who had been online in any form for more than five seconds will have experienced haters. My first time (sometimes in the 00’s) I was really disturbed and considered shutting my site!!

    Your tips seem like helpful strategies for managing the angst.

    Thanks for addressing this important topic!

    I guess you have to grow a thick skin in the online world.

    I have encountered mostly nice people but now and then an unkind comment can make you feel sad and question yourself.

    I did shut down comments in one of my blogs because I didn’t want to deal with negativity but I know is not the answer.

    Just keep going and ignore the haters.

    Thanks for the good advice.

    Thank you for this post! It came in timely.

    It’s good to be questioned so we can change while we can only hope that they are constructive and not plain criticisms. Some people do come from a bad place while sometimes our ideas can be out of the world that it gets “provocative”.

    Thank you for your kindness in reminding us to think for and from both ends (the reader and ourselves).

    I want to start a blog so bad but can’t get my nerve up. This information made me realize that everyone has to have information just like you gave. Thanks a bunch.

    This is excellent timing as I’m starting Module 4 and telling more people about my blog.

    I think the hardest thing is recognizing constructive criticism versus non-constructive criticism. Well, next to being open to criticism.
