Heather Armstrong (Dooce), August 2005 :: Rebecca Blood: Bloggers On Blogging: “I’ve come to terms with the boundaries I’ve had to draw to maintain order in my life.”
Relaunch | dooce ®: “You see, late last week one of the more technically-inclined members of my family found my website, serendipitously enough just after I posted an anti-Mormon diatribe Friday afternoon. They are devastated, and I’ve come to understand, rightfully so. I think that both my family and I have been living in a dream world when it comes to sharing who I am and what I believe.”
Here’s a link to a significant body of comments about Heather Armstrong’s dismissal.
Didn’t really need to do the last half dozen posts. Here’s the dooced archives which contain all the main posts relating to Armstrong’s dismissal.
In an “About” archive, Armstrong self-describes as “…that girl who lost her job because of her website.”
Armstrong created her own Unemployed & Unrepentant masthead. Indicative of struggle and contestation against her previous employer.
A post-dismissal explanation of the process of the firing providing some background about the Asian database administrator.
Interesting to notice the intransigent, defiant tone of Armstrong’s writing.
