Heather Armstrong's Biography

A best-selling and award-winning writer, Heather Armstrong is widely acknowledged to be the most popular “mommy blogger” in the world, and her website, dooce®, has twice been listed as one of the 25 best blogs in the world by Time Magazine.

Heather is a pioneer in the world of online writing and advertising. Her website, dooce®, was one of the first personal websites to sign with Federated Media Publishing in 2005. In the 14 years that Heather has been shaping the internet writing community, she has partnered with numerous global brands, producing tailored content for Ford, Nintendo, and Clorox. Her writing – from client work to personal pursuits to “mommy blogging”– reads with an unmistakable honesty that resonates with real people.

Heather is the author of New York Times Best-Seller, “It Sucked and then I Cried: How I Had a Baby, a Breakdown, and a Much Needed Margarita” (2010).

Born in Bartlett, Tennessee, Heather finally found home in Salt Lake City after a brief stint in Los Angeles, which is probably where she developed her love for exclamation points, or expletives, or both. When she isn’t working with brands, writing on her website, or speaking to audiences at various events around the world, she’s probably spending time with her two lovely daughters and their two insane dogs while maintaining her ever-so-slight southern drawl.

She serves on the board of directors for Every Mother Counts and served on the board of directors for the local affiliate of NAMI until 2014.
