In continuation of “Look what I found on the Internet!” I’d like to talk to you about Dooce.
Do you know who Dooce is?
She is like, the MOST popular blogger in the world. I’m not kidding. She has the world’s most popular blog. She got fired from her design job 7 years ago for blogging sassy things about her boss. I think she was one of the first people to get fired for a blog, and it was a HUGE deal, and it brought her a lot of fame.
(When you get fired for blogging it is actually called getting DOOCED. Try it in a sentence like, “Her bosses discovered how much Alison divulged on her blog, and she was quickly DOOCED.”)
And do you know where she lives? Salt Lake City. And do you know what she blogs about, NOTHING. Well nothing in the Seinfield sense. And do you know where she went to school? BYU. And do you know what color her hair is? BLONDE.
Doesn’t DOOCE sound like someone you know…
Blogs about her life…
Bitter blonde BYU grad…
Has lost her mind a couple of times…
And yet. Doocey Woosey supports her and her husband and he daughter with her blog.
Dooce’s real name is Heather B. Armstrong. Kirk (my oldest brother) told me about her blog a while ago and told me I should try to make money from my blog like her. It’s been like 3 years since he said that, and now she has like a book, and has been on the news. Everybody LOOOOVES DOOCE.
Am I jealous? No, no why would I be jealous? She just makes a living being her, which is what I’ve been trying to do since I was 12. People pay her to just exist and write about things in exactly the same way she would talk about them! No she does work very hard seriously. I can’t imagine the type of pressure you’d be under to post almost daily with like millions of readers! PANIC ATTACKS GALORE.
It’s weird. I’m strangely drawn to Dooce.com, almost daily. I tell myself I go there to figure out what it is about her site that so many people love. But while I’m there, I get sucked in. She is a really talented writer, and she is laugh out loud funny. I guess that’s all you need. But there is something more.
Anyway. Go DOOCE yourself today. Check her out. I think it’s really cool Heather Armstrong has done so much with her blog/website so PROPS TO DOOCE, even though I’m like totally jealous. And we all know that’s like so unattractive. Good thing I’m wearing my REALLY cute new headband today.
