BABBLE BEST - MOMMY BLOGGERS
Mommy bloggers make a difference. Sometimes it's their confessional tone that helps you feel like you're not the only one, sometimes their simple honesty puts you at ease, and sometimes they're so funny, you almost snarf your protein shake. There are the bloggers we relate to and there are others we watch like a train wreck, but no matter where we're coming from, we're all part of the same overwhelming, magical situation.
That's why we're dedicating the inaugural Babble Top 50 list to those who know best: moms. Babble staff and contributors compiled our top mommy-blogger picks based on the following criteria: most controversial, funniest, most confessional, best design, most useful and best written (though we left off Babble's own mommy bloggers because, as with our own kids, we couldn't possibly pick a favorite). These are our picks, but we're sure you'll have something to say on the matter, too.

The Cool Mom is well . . . cool. She stole one of the most traffic-friendly blog names and hosts the style show “Fashion Mommy Must Haves” for the TV Guide channel. Daphne Brogdon further reinforces her cool status by judging celebs in Star Magazines’s “Worst of the Week” and by appearing on CNN, Fox, Oprah and Dr. Phil. As a stand-up comedian, she’s busy making us laugh in her latest project, vlogging on Cool Mom while her husband Mark Peel puts in hours as the Executive Chef and owner of Campanile Restaurant and co-founder of La Brea Bakery. An experienced camera personality and humorist, Brogdon also joins the fray at Momversation, interviewing fellow moms on pressing issues like what to make of amusement parks. Our only vlogger on the list, Brodgon’s fantastic delivery and comic take on everyday experiences will leave you hungry for a list of forty-nine other top vloggers.
