A Video Interview with Dooce

by Susan

Yes, Heather Armstrong was at the Mom 2.0 Summit 2010 and I stole 5 minutes of her time to share with you!

Heather is one tall woman! And she’s wearing enormous heels… I felt like a small child next to her.

dooceSo tell me, what makes you MOST JEALOUS of Heather?

Is it her…

  • Runway model looks.
  • Wickedly hilarious sense of humor
  • Crazy busy but wildly successful blogging career, or
  • Her “tech-geek” husband Jon who handles the business behind her blog?

Thanks to my dear friend Rachel who recorded the interview for me on her flip. All my cameras were full and she saved the day with space left on her flip. (Last year at Mom 2.0 we had a fabulous camera guy to help Janice and I with our video interviews, but this year I went solo and we didn’t have a cameraman… just a Flip. LOL.)

Talk soon,
Susan, co-founder of 5 Minutes for Mom.

This was GREAT, Susan! I am a huge fan of Dooce. I hope to be at Mom 2.0 finally next year, too.

Oh, that was AWESOME!!! Enjoyed every second of it!

I’m jealous of Dooce because she just has a way with words. She can take any story and make it the most fantastic thing you’ve ever read. She is just an amazing writer.

Can I pick that I am jealous of her ring??? ;)

Great interview. I also like hearing more about the family business side of what she does, because I think it helps to understand more about how she is able to make it all work! And I would also love to work more with my husband, he helps me a lot with my blog.

Can I just say Heather’s comment about marrying a geek husband is totally true? :-)

I have a geek husband who saves my butt constantly. I do my own tech, but when I’m stuck, he’s there. He’s a genius where I’m lacking and it works out very nicely!

So I am a tad jealous of her height…

That was a great interview! Hopefully I will be able to attend that conference next year.

Good Stuff! Thanks!

What a lucky girl you are! Was she down to earth now that she is all famous and all LOL?!


10 kristin February 25, 2010 at 5:20 pm

I’ve seen the HGTV commercials and had to do a double take. Just to make sure it was her, and I knew it was!


11 Gail February 26, 2010 at 1:15 am

It is like High School and I want to be the popular girl! I want what she has – whether I know what she has or not!

I also want a hubby who knows how to make the behind the scenes happen…my husband can barely handle Facebook!

Great interview!


12 The Mom Jen February 26, 2010 at 1:20 am

I don’t know if I’m jealous because she works hard and has for years. I admire her for doing what WE all love and making it a true business.


13 Serendipity is Sweet February 26, 2010 at 11:22 am

Great interview. Well done!


14 One Vlogging Mama February 26, 2010 at 5:12 pm

I’m jealous her honey handles all the buisness of her blog! Lucky.
Wow. And she balances everything with her children and her blog posts.
I have alot to learn.
She is gonna have a TV show?
that is sweet.
And she is super tall….Esp. with heels.

You’re such a cute little thing. And I adore how fast you talk. You’re truly a fast talker!

Dooce/Heather looks like a run way model. No fair. She is talented, successful AND totally hot.



16 Nadia February 27, 2010 at 12:19 am

Great interview! I agree with Nell you are super cute!

Can’t believe how tall Heather is! I’ve seen her on Momversations but she is always sitting so its hard to tell.

Looks like you enjoyed yourself :).


17 Kelli February 27, 2010 at 10:27 am

OK, I hate to admit it.. but who in the world is Dooce?


18 Lorie Shewbridge March 7, 2010 at 9:39 pm

I’d like to say that I am not at ALL jealous of Dooce! I don’t want her life or her blog. I prefer to have the ability to actually converse with the people who visit my blog and not get too big for my britches. ‘Nuff said.


19 Kate March 14, 2010 at 7:51 pm

Great interview! I totally admit to being jealous of her sense of humor and her ability to put that into written word. It’s not always easy to go from a funny thought or story to laptop successfully, but she does!
