If you put something online, it's fair game for people to judge it. If you don't want 3,000 people judging your marriage, don't tweet about your fights with your spouse.
At the same time, if you want your work to change the world, you have to put it out there so people can experience it, and yes, judge it.
Not getting judged at all isn't the option. Define your boundaries and then put yourself out there.
