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

Magda Pecsenye of Ask Moxie
Pecsenye and her iconic blog are a bit like the Dear Abby for moms and dads… if Abby adopted a get-real attitude and doled out useful advice. This advice columnist and mom of two is upfront about parenthood: “…let’s face it, this shit is hard.” That all-for-one mentality assures that Pecsenye’s site and Babble blog both stay out of the my-parenting-is-better-than-yours Mommy Wars and instead focus on practical solutions to parenting challenges like establishing a bedtime, dealing with cold and flu season, self-soothing and problems with nursing. Moxie’s advice is usually spot-on and she’s always, always open to hearing what works for other families.
