Heather B. Armstrong is a bit of a hero in the blogosphere:  she actually lost her job because she blogged about it.  

That makes her a bit of a blogging revolutionary; but what also makes her one of the rebels of the blogosphere is her witty, irreverent writing about life and motherhood.  I dare you to read dooce.com and not be at least mildly amused.  Or mildly shocked.  She goes where most bloggers don’t dare to.

The other reason I chose Heather’s blog is the fact that she has managed to turn it into her own industry; not only making enough money with it to support herself, but also her husband, who assists with technical aspects of the blog.

So get your dooce on.  Go on, you know you want to.

I’m a fan of Dooce’s, and I’m always a little appalled at the haters that seek her out. She really stirs people up and it seems to be a “love her or hate her” kind of thing, which I don’t really understand.

I admire what she’s done and I read her blog most days, but I don’t kneel at her feet like some of her more sycophantic fans seem to!
