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

Jenny Ingram of Jenny on the Spot
One look at this family portrait and readers know that this mom of three truly does live up to her self-described “all-around silly girl” nature. There’s typical mom blogging fare here, including DIY projects, recipes, calls to action for worthy causes and advice for other bloggers, but the real draw is Ingram’s voice and her reminders to step back, take a deep breath and, for crying out loud, laugh a little bit. After all, family life can be a little bit dirty. And that’s okay.
