Heather B. Armstrong: From Dooce to the Valedictorian of Being Dead

March 19, 2019

Big fan girl moment speaking with Heather B. Armstrong --founder of --and author of the upcoming book, The Valedictorian of Being Dead. And happy 100th episode, podcast :)

I think the intro from Heather B. Armstrong's famous blog,, probably describes her best:

Hi. I’m Heather B. Armstrong. When I first wrote a bio for this site I called myself a SAHM—a Stay At Home Mom, or, Shit Ass Ho Motherfucker. More than a decade later I am now what’s referred to as a FTSWM—a Full-Time Single Working Mom, or, Fuck That Shit Where’s Marijuana.

This used to be called mommy blogging. But then they started calling it Influencer Marketing: hashtag ad, hashtag sponsored, hashtag you know you want me to slap your product on my kid and exploit her for millions and millions of dollars. That’s how this shit works.

Now? Well… sit back, buckle up, and enjoy the ride. dooce is back. And she’s talking about herself in the third person, so you know you better have a barf bag at the ready.

I came, I talked, and I fan-girled with this authentic AF mom, writer and advocate.
