The 2007 Mother’s Day Central Top 100 Mom Blogs Awards

April 5th, 2007
Top Moms. .

We Think Mom Bloggers Deserve a Little Recognition!

Hey we all know that moms work hard.  But mom bloggers work hard, and run blogs.  We think that deserves a little extra recognition.  After all, mom bloggers are also helping other moms.

So, we took a shot at putting together a  list of Top 100  Mom Blogs. These women, and communities of women, have in our view displayed particular excellence in areas including:

  • Originality
  • Passion
  • Humor
  • Personality
  • Creativity

We understand that your favorite blog may not be mentioned in this list. We had a difficult time narrowing the contestants down, because there are so many qualified mothers who blog. Please email us any notable blogs you feel should have been included.

One thing was clear when reviewing all of the great mom blogs out there.  Just being a mom brings plenty of ammo for discussion, community, and endless entertainment!  So without further ado, here is our first list of Top 100 Mom Blogs:

    We are so happy that you gave an award to our own wry, local blogger, Kat Wilder (#40)
    even though only her closest friends will know “she” got it. And the award led me to your bountiful and fun site.

    For those afflicted with “Mommy Guilt” (as The Today Show dubbed it) for not spending enough time with their children, consider trying another local find – a “do good” social enterprise, LaborFair.com that is an online job referral network. YOu can fine and contact reputable household help fast.

    Again kudos for shinign a spotlight on so many treasures.

    Thank you for awarding me (although, truth be told, I am NO June Cleaver!).

    But I think many divorced fortysomething moms with teens will relate to at least some of what I write.

    And, because of this award, I’ve been turned onto some really great blogs that will now be part of my daily reading requirement.

    Happy Mom’s Day, one and all!

    You should really have a listing of the best mom books. Hands down, “The Book of Mom” by Taylor Wilshire would win! It is a hilarious, summer-like read that you will not be able to put dowm. It’s about an overwhelmed mom that gets help with a bunch of Oprah-like tips on living a more authentic life.

    Debbie Says:

    Love all the links, can’t wait to check them out. Do you mind if I add MommasChoice.com to the list of nominations for next year? We’re all in this together….. Thanks!

    Inventing Matilda Says:

    How wonderful to see all of your blogging champions. The neat thing about blogs is that now communication and creativity are not limited to the pages of formal magazines. The internet has created a niche community of amazing writers and compilers. Watch out Magazines, now you have more competition than just other magazines on the rack.

    Jennifer Says:

    I, like many of you, am a busy, working mom and wife to a hardworking, hungry husband. It is my desire to be able to do EVERYTHING and still be able to put a healthy, delicious meal on the table for dinner. Getting dinner on the table is a difficult task when we are managing the daily lives of our families as well as ourselves. That is why I created this blog. Consider it a tool to help you get organized, so that making dinner is not as impossible as it might seem. Each week I will give you four recipes, that take approx. 20 minutes to prepare. I will also include a shopping list and a list of items that you may already have in your pantry or fridge. Some meals are large enough that you can have 1 or 2 “left-over nights” per week. Give yourself a much needed break and order out one night, or go out for dinner! All meals are generally for 4-6 servings, and the shopping list reflects this. So, change the amounts accordingly. Also, remember to check recipes for known food allergies and substitute or omit ingredients as needed. Most of all, take the time to enjoy dinnertime with your loved ones!

    Ann Says:

    I just started blogging (www.3girlsandapug.com) and love having this media as an outlet to other writing I do professionally. Your top 100 listing really showcases all of the great mommy blogs that are out there. Thank you! I can’t wait to see the list for 2009.

    rachel Says:

    Nice blogs but what about mine? Mountain Mom Report is good too! There are some other location-interesting blogs too. That would have been a good category. I love to see how motherhood intersects with the location they live. I am always trying to find a good blog about what it’s like to be a mom in Hawaii, for example. I’ve found some in Paris.

    Kim Says:

    I just started my own blog and I need some helpful advice. My page looks so boring. How can I spruce it up and maybe be a Top Mommyblogger myself someday?

    Lia S. Says:

    What about a category for green or crunchy moms? Sort of the attachment parenting/natural family living set?
    SouleMama.com
    ProgressivePioneer.com
    SewLiberated.com
    EnchantedMama.com

    Thanks for the great list!

    Tara Says:

    What a great site! I completely agree with the recognition needed :) Can’t wait to take a look at them all. Until then…congrats to all the winners!!

    The Mommyologist Says:

    So…how do I make the top 100 list for 2010?
