Babble's Top 100 Mom Blogs of 2011
Heather Armstrong of Dooce
The New York Times declared her to be “Queen Of The Mommy Bloggers,” but it’s been fully a decade since Heather Armstrong started her blog, Dooce, lost her job because of it, and embraced (not without difficulty) motherhood – all in public view. A perennial on Babble’s lists of Top Mom Blogs (she ranked fourth in 2010 and second in 2009), Armstrong has turned Dooce into a full-time, family-supporting endeavor, while also authoring two books (her best-seller, It Sucked and Then I Cried, documents her struggle with postpartum depression). This year, she took that endeavor a step further and began using Dooce as a platform for promoting social good by working publicly with Christy Turlington’s maternal health organization, Every Mother Counts. She even ran a marathon in support of that cause. How many queens do that?
