I love dooce, even though I am a middleaged, childless, currently unmarried
person. But I totally get it about the dogs!
I read DOOCE Daily and am a big fan of her witty approach to life!Lisa
from Woodland, CA
Dooce is awesome! I love reading her posts and her writing as well as her
honesty are what keep pulling people in. I can't wait for her book and hope it
is a best seller.
TMI, I worry about you and your sort. Heather writes with considerable
restraint about the Church. Not everything that happens in the Church is 100%
positive. Remember, none of us is infallible. Meanwhile, don't judge the rest
of us who love dooce for the lighthearted joy Heather brings.
I feel really sorry for her kid. She has no say on whether or not her life gets
to be broadcast on the internet. It's like sharing embarrassing baby pictures
and anecdotes with the entire country.
Can't stand the stupid letters to her daughter. Its simply too much. Enough
Heather, I've read your blog every day for the past 3 year's, and I have to
admit that there have been days that only you have made me laugh. You have such
a genuine quality to your writings that I feel like you're one of my close
friends- I know, kinda creepy. Thank you for your humor, whit and most of all
your honesty. You make my day!
Brooklynmama you obviously don't have a sense of humour or you would understand.
Pooce don't like it don't read it. I love Heathers work all the way from
To all those who have expressed there need fot dooce.....I say GET a
Life!!!!You probably watch TV soaps too.
You found your calling. Relax now. It will all come. It is like being in the
zone in sports. It will just flow. Relax.
i've been reading dooce.com off and on for a year now. she's genuine, funny, and
an excellent writer. i've just read all 70+ comments left so far. i think it's
important to note that the loving, supportive comments left here in this article
about her (and those left on her blog) far, far outweigh whatever comments
negative, judgmental, hateful people with bottom-feeder mentalities have to say
about heather, how she lives her life, and what she does. that tells me that
what she's doing is good and positive.but that's what makes the
internet so fascinating: people are certainly entitled to give their opinions,
and so often choose to do so in nasty ways that always, always leave them
looking very silly and immature (and, quite often, guilty of exactly the thing
they are pointing fingers at). and so, yay! heather wins (again)!"-D
I love Dooce! Heather inspires me in every way. And despite what "pooce" said
above, the letters to Leta are my favorite part of the blog. What a wonderful
thing to do for your child - to write them a letter every month, so they'll be
able to share the memories they were too small to remember themselves someday.
And I feel honored that she shares them with her readers. Reading
Heather's blog is an important part of my day. Thank you so much, Heather.
her writing is witty and entertaining. i don't have kids and even her writings
about parenting are interesting because IT IS JUST GREAT WRITING! hers is
actually only 1 of 3 blogs i actually make time to read. i hope she makes a
million dollars a year.
i read dooce everyday and feel connected, inspired, and happier. she makes me
laugh, she is a great writer and very witty, and she supports women and artists.
if i could only read one person's blog it would be heather's dooce blog. i can't
get enough of it! she knows how to tell a good story.
I stumbled across the site when I Googled (verb)"hate job" 4 years ago, after
quitting my job in advertising. I have been reading it every since. My husband
thinks her photos of animals, children and scenery are brilliant. I go back for
the writing, though. She's got this great angle on life that comes through in
every post. I would call it irreverence "lite".
I find Heather and Jon to be the poster children for WHAT not to do in life. She
said she had postpartum in 2004, so how do you explain all the mean things she's
said and shared about Leta up till now? Trust me you dooclings if your mother
rejected you, shared all your personal shortcomings or failures you wouldn't be
so happy either. When will you doocelings get a brain and think for yourselves
when Leta tries to off herself from all the torture she'll receive because he
mother wanted a new house and wouldn't keep quite? Nice, it takes a village to
raise a child that's unless you're a blog celeb then everything is forgivable.
It's one of the only blogs I check daily. It's amusing and I envy her for her
creative writing and upkeep of this blog. Go Dooce Go!
FYI... 30 yr old male reading for about 3 yrs and always wanted to blog about my
life too... Everyone has a story... How about an adopted Korean growing up on
a farm in Pa'Tucky with Evangelicals and excommunicated for coming out?I check daily too...Where else can you find a candid letter to your
daughter each month you can cherish and laugh about later in life together?She does the work for me to find interesting videos, shopping/home
stuff, humor, and uplifting words to keep going.The Chuck pictures
and calendar (gotta get one).Talking about religion and issues that
come of it (good and bad). What's so bad about that?
Dooce.com is the only blog I check daily.I'm disappointed when there are
no new posts, but almost excited when there are.Keep up the great work
