In November 2009, her focus shifted to expanding and building her Blogs by Heather business (BlogsByHeather.com). In July 2010, she published her first book, Beginning Google Blogger, and in the fall of 2010 began writing her second, Creative Blogging.

Heather enjoys writing and sharing her blogging knowledge and experience with her readers. She hopes to continue writing technical books and maybe will even write a children's book someday. Her days are also filled with raising her young family, Luke and Michaela.

As a creative outlet and for her love of art, she became a Stampin Up! Demonstrator in October 2006. She is what is considered a hobby demonstrator, but enjoys making and selling cards at local shops, holding child and adult craft programs at local libraries, as well as workshops at her home with customers, friends and family.

Heather is easygoing, but very ambitious and detailed-oriented (how does that combination work?). She gets great enjoyment in helping others and more so in making people smile. She is blessed and fortunate to have the life she has, and to be surrounded by a loving family and wonderful people.

Blogger isn't hard but this book makes it fun. Sample is rather useless though.
