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.

So Close started as the chronicle of blogger Tertia’s journey through infertility. After nine (yes, nine) rounds of IVF and several losses, Tertia had twins:and then conceived and gave birth to another baby at age forty. Now she’s published a book about the experience and started South Africa’s “premiere egg donor and surrogacy program,” all while keeping up a steady stream of posts on kids, work, hubby Marko, and the joys of chilled Chardonnay. Are you a WAHM but distracted by constant toddlering? Tertia fakes hers out by driving around the corner while hubby distracts and then slipping back into the home office. Need advice on Botox or breast implants? Tertia has the hookup (in South Africa). Confused as to proper play-date etiquette? So is Tertia. So Close joins the pack thanks to its candid coverage and Tertia’s entrepreneurial savvy.
