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

Elizabeth Jayne Liu of Flourish in Progress
Describing herself as “part hood, part good,” Liu entered the motherhood fray at age 19 and has led what sounds like an equally intense life since. The now-32-year-old mom of one devotes much of her blog to self-discovery through cool projects, a few of which include her Hustle Hard Interviews, a chronicle of the year she went without shopping and her Monday Dares. (Our favorite one is here, but tread softly. Liu doesn’t exactly use the most G-rated language). On top of dishing on her own blog, Liu also writes under the nom de plume of Flo-Rich over at the definitely not G-rated site, Inside the Mind of a Ghetto Genius.
