What's the point? -- Ever heard the term "dooced"? That's when someone gets fired for blogging about work, and it comes from this site, which is run by Heather B. Armstrong. Yes, she was fired from her job because of the blog, but that was a long time ago (2002), and now she's turned the blog into her full-time job. It's filled with witty, if occasionally profane, ruminations on her dogs, living in Utah, parenting, family reunions and everything in between.

What to look for --Check out the monthly newsletter, written to her toddler daughter about what the past 30 days or so of her life have brought, how she's changed and what she's learned. The posts are equal parts moving and hilarious.
