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 far, our list of the top 50 mommy bloggers has brought you mommies with life lists, mommies with life hacks, mommies with drinking habits, and now we bring you two mommies who needed to have “. . . at least one fun activity per day for our baby’s first year.” With over 1,000 new activities tried and posted by these new moms, now old hats, this site fills an important niche. The Rookie Moms, two geeky, overachiever, control-freak new moms, promise reading their blog will be “more fun than wiping someone’s tushy” - well, at least they’re not over-promising. Fun activity #291: Let your baby ride the family pet, or Activity #222: Launch Camp Grandma, or perhaps the most important one, Activity #272: Laugh. The Rookie Mom’s Handbook: 250 Activities to Do with (and Without!) Your Baby debuted in May 2008.
