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

Helen Jane Hearn of Helen Jane
This Napa Valley hip mama of two has been blogging for 14 years (that’s since the ‘90s, y’all), so she’s weathered the ups and downs an internet audience can bring. One reason Hearn has stuck around so long is because her site is visually interesting and creatively unique — and she’s got some ingenious parenting hacks. Most importantly, Hearn comes across as a collected parent, one who can cut a significant amount of stress out of readers’ lives with simple solutions like family meal plans and her no-stress guide to the perfect porch party. Hearn’s also a digital whiz, so expect tales about life on the home front to be paired with diatribes on internet trends.
