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.

Jeanne Sager, a reporter and photographer for the Sullivan County Democrat in upstate New York, is also a rockstar in the freelance parenting writing community. Yes, she’s a frequent contributor here on Babble, but she also writes for Bookslut, Burbia.com, Your Tango, Peekaboo Picks and more. In addition to influencing the media conversation about motherhood and parenting, she turns her reporting “inside out” to chronicle her daughter Jillian’s life. Inside Out is product and reviews-oriented, featuring “mom reviews plus attitude” that has won awards from the New York Press Association. Sager eagerly shares photos of her “one and only,” and describes her daughter’s showboating ways. You’ll have a hard time not warming to this accomplished young writer mama, and you’ll love her blog’s frequent giveaways.
