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.

Bacon Is My Enemy, a reference to her well-documented battle with weight loss, Giyen’s blog title doesn’t capture the full range of her blog’s concerns. Not only is bacon her enemy, but rude customers are as well - she was a waitress for ten years prior to working for a non-profit and then quitting to become a full-time blogger. We appreciate how open Giyen is about her missteps, like the time she realized after taking four Bourbon shots that she was far from home, and needed to take both a bus and a ferry to get back. She’s your crazy friend whose stories make you feel a little bit more put together but also helps you stay in touch with the rawness, hilarity and unpredictability of life.
