BABBLE BEST - MOMMY BLOGGERS
Mommy bloggers make a difference. Sometimes it's their confessional tone that helps you feel like you're not the only one, sometimes their simple honesty puts you at ease, and sometimes they're so funny, you almost snarf your protein shake. There are the bloggers we relate to and there are others we watch like a train wreck, but no matter where we're coming from, we're all part of the same overwhelming, magical situation.
That's why we're dedicating the inaugural Babble Top 50 list to those who know best: moms. Babble staff and contributors compiled our top mommy-blogger picks based on the following criteria: most controversial, funniest, most confessional, best design, most useful and best written (though we left off Babble's own mommy bloggers because, as with our own kids, we couldn't possibly pick a favorite). These are our picks, but we're sure you'll have something to say on the matter, too.

Combining the city slicker gone country theme with a boatload of happy homemaker attitude and know-how has won The Pioneer Woman close to two million devoted followers a month, helping make her our queen of the mommy blogosphere. A big-city gal who left it all behind when she met her “Marlboro man” to become a rancher’s wife, Ree Drummond tells of a saga from “black heels to tractor wheels” chronicled in harlequin romance chapter form and style.
Blogging since 2006, Drummond’s fully branded her guides for photography, cooking, home and garden (she’s even got a primer on different soil types) and home schooling. The Martha Stewart of the Great Plains, The Pioneer Woman lives in what she calls “the lodge” and along with cattle and horses, wrangles her four lil’ cow pokes, known lovingly as “the punks.” Like other well-branded food bloggers, the Pioneer Woman has staked her claim in the cookbook market with her October 2009 The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Recipes from an Accidental Country Girl.
