These threads get quite heated sometimes. One small word of advice going forward, though. Although your initial post here is perfectly OK in as far as promoting your blog, go ahead and jump into the discussion topic.
It is entirely appropriate for you to put the link to your blog at the bottom of your post, no-one will take issue with that. Allahpundit started out this way, on these threads as well as those on other sites.
Just don't make every post a promotional exercise; participate in the thread, just like you would an on-line class. We like meat and potatoes here..
Welcome to the fray.
