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

Linda Sharps of Sundry Mourning
Sharps writes about timely pop culture and social issues in her column at The Stir, but her personal blog is focused on her jaw-droppingly cute family and life in Eugene, Oregon. (Warning: one look at pictuess like these will have your heart screaming, “Take me there!”) Sharps’ posts go straight for the emotional jugular because they’re honest and don’t try to paint parenthood as anything other than the most wonderful and most challenging thing in the world — it’s that kind of honesty that we find refreshing.
