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
As the name Rocks In My Dryer indicates, this is a domestically and family-focused blog. In addition to journaling her daily life as a stay-at-home mom, Shannon Lowe is a contributing editor at BlogHer, blogs for Parenting and co-authored the first edition of Typepad for Dummies. What Lowe really wants to brag about though is her college sweet heart husband who once surprise-ordered her seven tubes of Rum Raisin lipstick on eBay after Cover Girl discontinued the color. He’s “mine, all mine,” she croons, “and you can’t have him.” Find more entertaining sweetness in her daily updates.
