As predicted on GOMI nearly two weeks ago, Heather Armstrong (of dooce.com fame) and her husband are “taking a break”.
According to her latest post, her husband is no longer living in the House That Blogging Built. Her husband put up his own post titled “Yes, I’m Currently in a Trial Separation” explaining the situation:
Things have changed between Heather and I. This is true. They needed to change. I recognize that. I’ve felt that we were headed in the wrong direction, but I have allowed other issues to block me pushing for the changes. I’m not sure that I have the words to explain the devastation, pain, regret and sorrow I’ve felt the past couple of months. I’ve tried. After a very painful holiday season, this is where my life is: away from my kids; away from my wife; away from my dogs.
He goes on to say that he and Heather “are on speaking terms. It could be a lot worse. I recognize that. It doesn’t make the pain of saying goodbye everyday any less severe. ”
Dooce has also asked her husband “to find work outside of Armstrong Media.” Could this be the beginning of the end for the Dooce blog empire?
