Top 50 Mom Blogs, 2010
Babble's inaugural Top 50 Mom Blogger list began by saying that "mom bloggers make a difference." Well, it's 2010 now, and you'd have to be under a parenting stone not to know that already. Not only do they make "a" difference, but for many moms in cities and towns and burbs nationwide they make the difference, providing information, LOLs, "I've-been-there-sister" reassurance, and perhaps more than anything, the camaraderie that helps get you through the long, breakfast-till-you-put-them-down day.
As a collective, mom bloggers have given the previously too closed, too private, too go-through-it-alone experience of motherhood a voice. And does that voice travel! From major media figures including Lisa Belkin of the New York Times blog Motherlode to ma-without-pop operations such as Bacon Is My Enemy, these virtual sisters are broadcasting their real-mom experiences loud and clear.
And we couldn't be more happy to help them be heard. So for this year's Top 50, we had a group of mom blogger/parenting experts make their choices, then we dug over the data and compiled the 50 mom bloggers you should be following for 2010.
It was tough to trim it to 50, but that's where you come in. Please, please, nominate your favorites, too! Let the world know just how many and how great the mom bloggers out there are. We're all one big community, and the better we know each other, the more we all benefit. Look for your nominations on our 2011 list next year and, in the meantime, read, write, and link up. We're all in it together! - The Babble Editors

Teresa Strasser | Exploiting My Baby
- #8 The Funniest
Emmy-winning television personality and former co-host of the Adam Corolla radio show, Teresa Strasser is a newcomer to the Babble list, and an exceptionally funny one at that. One glance at Strasser’s hysterical blog (and upcoming book of the same name), Exploiting My Baby, and you’ll be convinced.
Exploiting My Baby’s ability to poke fun at subjects that moms usually stress over is what drew us to the blog in the first place (she attends a breastfeeding support group even though she stopped nursing three months ago). But Strasser’s blog isn’t just all fun and games: When she shared her epiphanies about being a first-time parent, we realized that TV personalities can be just as human as the rest of us.
