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

Monica Bielanko | The Girl Who
Monica Bielanko is popping up all over the place! Babble readers know her as one of the newest bloggers at our pregnancy blog, Being Pregnant, but there is so much more to know about the mom behind The Girl Who. If the fact that this currently pregnant, former Mormon ran off to NYC to marry a rockstar isn’t enough to get you reading, her wonderful pictures and confessional tone will.
Monica is an amazing writer; her blog posts read like chapters of a book. The story of how she met her husband alone could land her a book deal! (Seriously, just read it. You’ll be giddy and turning green with jealousy all at the same time.)
