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

Liz Gumbinner of Mom101
We knew we were going to love Liz as soon as we found her making fun of her own pregnancy journal. From there, our relationship has done nothing but grow. This delightfully snarky blog is low on the cutesy, being-a-mommy-is-all-sunshine-and-giggles posts and practically bursting with thoughtful content that ranges from musings on stay-at-home dads to a direct explanation of why working moms aren’t “doing it all.” Gumbinner has even published a HuffPo piece on why your child isn’t special. And her blog has also taken an international turn, thanks to her work with One Moms. After traveling to Ethiopia with the group earlier this year to support moms living in extreme poverty, Gumbinner has extensively blogged about her experiences and her subsequent work with the group.
