"Mommy blogger Heather Armstrong dead at 47

World A- A A+
Heather Armstrong, who found success in the 2000s documenting the ups and downs of motherhood on her blogging website Dooce, has died at age 47.
EDnews informs via BBC that her boyfriend Pete Ashdown told the Associated Press he had found Armstrong on Tuesday night in their Utah home.
The "queen of mommy blogging" wrote frequently about her children, relationships and personal struggles.
At the height of its popularity, Dooce received more than eight million visitors a month, according to Vox.
That was in 2009 - the same year Armstrong was named in Forbes' annual list of the 30 most influential women in media.
Armstrong founded Dooce in the early 2000s as a place to dish about work, sex and leaving the Mormon church.
The site's name came from an inside joke that riffed on how she was unable to spell out the word "dude" quickly in online chats, according to reports from the Associated Press and New York Times.
In 2002, Armstrong was fired from her job as a web designer in Los Angeles after the snarky blog - in which she gave coworkers nicknames like That One Co-worker Who Manages to Say Something Stupid Every Time He Opens His Mouth - was found to be hers.
