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

Heather Spohr of The Spohrs Are Multiplying
Much of this blog chronicles Mama Spohr’s pregnancy with her first daughter, Madeline. After Madeline’s passing in April of 2009, the blog took a whole different turn. While The Spohrs Are Multiplying does explore the grief that families endure when a child passes, it’s also about creating a new life out of that grief. We love Spohr because she understands exactly how kids drive you to the edge of sanity one minute, then make your heart burst with love the next. Along with family stories about life with the hubs, her daughter Annabel Violet and a soon-to-be-new family member, this blog is packed with delish recipes, cool video blogs, hair tips and photos of a damn good-looking family. And just in case you can’t get enough Spohr in your life, check her out on Babble Voices.
