Top 100 Mom Blogs of 2012

The top mom bloggers — they make us laugh, they make us cry, and most importantly, they make us feel like we've got allies in this wonderfully weird world of parenting. Our Top 100 list is an annual salute to those who are brave enough to air their best and worst parenting moments, and includes blogosphere staples as well as newcomers. At Babble, we believe that all parents are in the business of raising the next generation together. We've brought people into the world who need us very deeply. And despite the "mommy wars" that hogged headlines this year, we need each other; we need to feel connected to those who are in the trenches with us. Here are the top 100 moms — narrowed down with the help of our esteemed panelists — who remind us that we're not alone. We realize this is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the talent, humor, and kindness displayed daily in the blogosphere, and the way things are going, the talent pool of moms is only going to get bigger from here. So if you feel we missed a mom blog you love, please nominate it for consideration on next year’s list. We want this list to reflect your opinions just as much as ours — Christina Couch

Brittany Gibbons of Brittany, Herself

Top Mom Bloggers of 2012

Rankings:


Gibbons once stripped down to her skivvies on stage in front of more than 700 people while giving a TEDx talk on body acceptance. She offers the same level of candidness in her blog. Formerly known as the Barefoot Foodie, Gibbons’ blog relaunch as Brittany, Herself still contains a bit of food porn, but focuses much more on Gibbons’ thoughts on fashion, parenting and wonderfully bizarre e-mail exchanges between the author and her husband. Gibbons is a comedienne at heart, but when it comes to those who define “beautiful” as “skinny,” this mom of three wields her humor like a well-sharpened harpoon. Right, Marie Claire? Gibbons also isn’t afraid to show her vulnerable side or the things parenting books won’t tell you about kids.

Her three favorite posts:
Anastasia Steele Was Clearly Not a Mother of Three
A Hot Bed of Sexual Insecurities
Parenthood Friendship

    Oh, and to add to my previous comment… if you DO try to click through the slideshow, at slide 46 or so it inexplicably jumps to the Top 50 Dad blogs and won’t even let you see the rest of the Mom’s list…

    …the heck is going on?

  2. I think you have mentioned some very interesting details , thanks for the post.

  3. My name is Rob Buccheri. I’m looking for some feedback and a “mention” (if possible).

    Preschool YouTube video story told by: Rob Buccheri

    “Tommy Rocks”. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nxm4mWvdxwo

    “Tommy Rocks” is a children’s story presented in a preschool…”school readiness” television program learning style…much like that of “Sesame Street”. VERY ORIGINAL. POSITIVE message TEACHES children to be a LEADER.

    Any help you could give me would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

  4. I nominate Great Moments in Parenting, a new blog that celebrates the agony and the ecstasy of life with kids.
