What was the cause behind the death of Heather Armstrong?
Pete Ashdown, Heather’s boyfriend, said he discovered her dead at their Salt Lake City home on Tuesday night in a conversation with The Associated Press.

When did Heather Armstrong start her site Dooce?
As per a study by Vox, Heather’s site Dooce was quite popular among the people. The media outlet claimed that the website received more than eight million visitors per month.
In the year 2009, Armstrong was featured in Forbes’ annual list of the 30 most important women in media. She founded her site Dooce in the early 2000s. Her website served as a platform for her to air her frustrations at the time regarding her job, relationships with others, her children, and other issues.
The mommy blogger was dismissed from her job as a web designer in Los Angeles in 2002, according to the BBC, after it was discovered that some of the nicknames she assigned to her coworkers—such as That One Coworker Who Manages to Say Something Stupid Every Time He Opens His Mouth—were actually hers.
Her annoyance and the source of it generated discussion online. It quickly became a hot topic of conversation among fans. After finding out she was pregnant that year, she reopened her site six months later as a different blog. Then, she started blogging about her issues with mental illness, her kids’ outbursts, and her battles with drinking and postpartum depression.
How many kids did Heather Armstrong have?
With her ex-husband and business partner Jon Armstrong, who founded Dooce in 2001 and turned it into a successful career, Heather gave birth to two children. Leta and Marlo are their shared daughters.
Back then, Armstrong was a well-known mother blogger. 2009 saw the release of her memoir, It Sucked and Then I Cried: How I Had a Baby, a Breakdown, and a Much Needed Margarita. She managed to share the story of her life via her blog.
