Love me some dooce

As a fan of dooce I'm one of a million or more. But I feel I have an odd kinship with this woman who has no idea I exist. For one, her oldest daughter Leta is 23 days older than my daughter Jayden. Two, her sense of humor is right up my alley, although I think I'm funnier verbally than in my writing. Three, while I've never had post-partum depression I have had some bad episodes of the blues (my OBgyn's were always surprised that I never suffered from post-partum) and reading her posts about depression make me feel less alone, as she writes what I can only think and feel.

So, while this article is over a week old now, I still wanted to share it for those who may find it as interesting as I did. Heather Armstrong is inspiring, and I am proud that she represents powerful media moms, and that she remains herself while she conquers the media world.

You (& Kristin) have made me a fan as well.

Well, you KNOW how I feel about dooce...:) I still have the email she sent me after I told her that because of her posts, I had my cancer checked out...she's the best! (um, and that makes me sound like a total fan-girl, saving an email from a blogger, but whatever...ha ha ha!)

I love her too! She can make laugh, cry and think like no one else.
