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

Joanne Bamberger of PunditMom
Moms are amongst the most opinionated people in the world, and Joanne Bamberger could be their pack leader. A political and social media strategist, journalist, mom of one and stepmom of two, Bamberger’s blog and her Babble posts highlight the political power, issues and social activist causes modern moms are taking on. Obviously, the Presidential election has been major PunditMom blog fodder this year, but readers will also encounter Bamberger’s take on current events, adoption, equal pay and how mothers are making their mark, sprinkled with occasional insights on her daughter as she enters her teenage years. Joanne’s book, like her blog, is also a must-read.
