When did Heather Armstrong start her website, Dooce?
Vox said that Heather’s website, Dooce, was trendy. The news source said more than eight million people visited the website monthly.
In 2009, Forbes put Armstrong on its annual list of the 30 most influential women in media. In the early 2000s, she made the site Dooce. At the time, she used her website to discuss her job, relationships, kids, and other problems.
BBC says that the mommy blogger lost her job as a web designer in Los Angeles in 2002 because she called her coworkers names like “That One Coworker Who Says Something Stupid Every Time He Opens His Mouth” on her snarky blog.
Her anger and why it made her angry caused a stir online. In the blink of an eye, it became something people talked about. After getting pregnant that year, she started her site up 6 months later as a different blog. Then, she started writing in her blog about her mental health problems, her kids’ temper tantrums, and her battles with alcoholism and postpartum depression.
