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

Ellen Seidman of Love That Max
Ellen Seidman knew her life would change the day her son, Max, was born. She didn’t think that brain trauma would be a part of that change. Suffering a stroke at birth, Max was later diagnosed with cerebral palsy. The resulting blog, which chronicles life with Max, has been widely hailed as one of the best-written blogs on the web — and one of the most honest when it comes to discussing parenting special-needs children. Seidman has since become an outspoken advocate for the rights of special-needs kids and a volunteer for the Special Olympics. You can also check out her Babble blog right here.
