Blogging About Process (and why I don't worry about people stealing my ideas)

A lot of what I blog about here is my process, the brainstorming phase as I show/share with my writer's notebooks, the initial phase as I usually work things out in color coded papers, then onto conference presentations, then onto article or dissertation chapters.
I've been asked before if I worry about sharing so much of my work online, that someone might steal my ideas.
And here's why I don't, because my writer's notebook and my online presence show the entire process, and there's no way to fake the process.
