I can’t say I disagree. The idea of it hurting career prospects rings true. When I was applying to grad school, I didn’t blog and even locked my twitter account so no admissions committee would discover I was a libertarian, or worse, a conservative. Now that I have nothing to hide, though, I like talking about things in public and, now that I’ve started selling some writing, this blog makes a good place for my fans (i.e., my wife and my parents) to find all of my work in one place. Sharing it all with the tens of daily readers here is a nice bonus.
