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 Babble Editors
If only we’d thought of it first - but no, Danielle Friedland takes the credit and the cash for the wildly successful Celebrity Baby Blog, which she started in 2004, now owned by People magazine. If you’re looking for agenda-free mind candy, Celebrity Baby Blog will hook you up. Sure they raise awareness of issues and trends, but honestly, it’s all about the pictures, checking out celeb-approved baby gear and learning where to obtain it - requisite chunk of change not included. If you’re tired of acknowledging how hard our ho-hum lives can be, set your eyes on the Stefani-Rossdales’ updated Family Album. You’ll find that Kingston’s up to his old shenanigans! Despite her sweet deal, Friedland’s still involved in the site editorially.
