OMG, Its Here, Its Finally Here! Our List…that should have been done by Dec 31st.

Hey, it’s not my fault the blogosphere got bigger.

This takes a while.

Before you groan at me, “oh trisha, some of these bloggers are on ALL the lists“, the reasons they make those lists in general is because they are doing an excellent job either marketing or standing out.

Its not democracy…it’s blogocracy. Get over it.

So here they are:

MomDots Top 100 Mom Bloggers of 2009

—————————————————————————–

100. You; Yes, this is a total cop out. But the truth is, I cannot possible list all of your blogs. I cant. Not only would it make pointing out some of the best useless, but even I dont get paid enough for that. So if you are not below, suck it up and tell everyone you are #100. Ill back you up.

——————————————

99. So Wonderful, So Marvelous (Name: Michelle):  She calls herself the lunatic behind the blog. Me thinks not so much a lunatic, but an entertaining picture filled, video filled, life filled bit of daily reading. She also does cool mom decorating crap that I would never do. For that she deserves a spot at my dinner table..err…list.

——————————————

98. Permission to Peruse (Name: Amy) Hot Mom Blogger, Content Writer, blog name I cant spell well. Yes! Found my #98. Amy is a collage of randomness that just feels right to read. She says blogging is cheap therapy…clearly she has never been on the front page of the NY Times. Then you NEED therapy. We give her a hall pass for listing bible versus on her about page.

——————————————

97. VDog (Name: The only reason VDog is this high and not lower is because for the LIFE of me I cannot remember her name…and I have even met her. Its probably my fault). This picture alone made her in the top #100. Tongue? Other woman? Hawt.

——————————————

96. Miss Grace’s Disgrace (Name: Jennifer) : Are there 365 days or 356 days in a year? Seriously, who cares. Jennifer made a blog post for almost every one of them in 2009 and she did so with flair. Pictures of you doing sh*t you probably don’t want your kids to know…but oh, they will. The internet doesn’t exactly go away. Its like sexting. That wedgie shot is going to live in eternity foreva.

——————————————

95. Airing my Dirty Laundry..one sock at a time (Name: Amber ) 6 years of blogging and still hanging on. Props for not deleting yourself or going batsh*t crazy already. Somehow I think you should be in my top 10, but it would feel like me pimping you out and well..you get the point. So ill sit you here. I really want to focus on 2009, but since we are in 2010 due to my slackerdome, I am going to say this post on Yo Gabba Gabba left me disgusted. But this post on you hiding from your daughter last week was going…dude. I feel your pain. My office doors are closed right now from the “pretend” dogs out there. Kill. Me.

——————————————

94.  My Kids might be martians (Name: Sissy): Occupation: Family B*tch. Those were her words not mine. I absolutely love the hard core honesty here. Its straight up, suck it up, don’t worry about the cuss words and ass kissing, f**k yours, its my opinion time. No, I’m not a fan of black blog with white text cause it tears my eyes out in reading, BUT its worth the shaking your head in agreement if you need to unwind.

——————————————

93. Sippy Cup Chardonnay (Name: Rachel): Rachel has a pretty awesome blog that is simply about her life…even if it includes kitty litter and baby pee.

——————————————

92.  I am bossy (Name: Georgia) I’m going to be real. I introduced myself to Bossy at the Nikon party at BlogHer. Hey, I’m a fan. I watch her youtube video. I read her blog on occasion. I watched people fawn over how freaking awesometastic she is at some conference last year. So I mustered up some courage. She is like 6 foot tall compared to me and gorgeous. She looked me up and passed me by. Dont get me wrong, I got a hi, but she didn’t even ask my blog name or make an effort to be interested. Sigh. But such is life. I sucked it up and managed not to kill myself that night. Her blog is still pretty cool.

——————————————

91. The Daily Grind (Name: Jill): I sorta have known Jill since my beginning of MomDot.  She has always been a hard worker and I have watched her slowly move from an unknown to an everywhere. I think she should be immensely proud of taking her blog to the forefront and I hope to see her continue to do great things. Even if she never talks to me anymore.

——————————————

90. Busy-Mommy (Name: Emily): This blog is one that I could visit over and over again. Its visually stunning with a crisp white and primary (some of those are primary right?) colors everywhere, it doesn’t carry a lot of hoopla and you can move through quite easily and quickly. Emily also put together a secondary blog called Dish on Delish. Don’t go there if you are hungry. Trust me.

——————————————

89. Mom101 (Name: Liz): Liz had a big year with Blog with Integrity. She also runs Cool Mom Picks which shares some of the best items out there for you to blow your hard earned blog moola.

——————————————

88. Baconismylover (Name: No freaking clue ) This crap explains why none of yall want to meet her. But this explains why you do.

——————————————

87. Mother Bumper (Name: Katie): Katie isnt a daily blogger, but when she blogs, she is worth reading. She also blogs at Aiming Low…which is not on the list because I did my best to keep collaborative blogs off.

——————————————

86. Pundit Mom (Name: Joannne): I certainly don’t dive into politics too much. It makes my tummy hurt. But if you want someone that contributes all over the place and knows her…stuff…this the blog you need to visit to get the low down. Moms + Politics = Good Bathroom Reading.

——————————————

85. Cheaper Than Therapy (Name: Jen): Jen is one of those girls that just helps everyone, is nice to everyone, and shares some seriously funny conversations with her family. You will be agreeing and shaking your head along with her in no time.

——————————————

84. McMommy Chronicles (Name: ) This is the only blog I have ever went to that has ONE blog on each page. Its like checking out a chapter in a book for the day, which is perfect for those of us easily distracted. And lets face it, thats all of us.  Start Here.

——————————————

83. The Domestic Goddess (Name: Leah? Damn it all if I’m having a brain fart today) Just go visit and spare me the humiliation.

——————————————

82. I should be Folding Laundry (Name: Beth): Beautiful photography, beautiful words.

——————————————

81. Fairly Odd Mother (Name: Christina); What I like about this blog is its just about life. That’s it. About her life as a homeschooling mom, something someone like me would never have patience for, and it just works.

——————————————

80 Make and Takes (Name: Marie): Craft ideas, recipes, cool stuff you will probably burn yourself, cut off a finger, or glue yourself to the floor doing. Actually, not really. Totally kid friendly fun.

——————————————

79. Motherhood Uncensored (Name: Kristen) Moms? Uncensored? This goes against everything I was taught. Now get back in the kitchen, put on your pearls and be good. Or not…cause its better that way.

——————————————

78. Pensieve (Name: Robin ): Robin hangs with the cool crowd cause she is just…cool. Even if Disney has her off the list with the rest of us sh*theads. Wait. Now Im wondering if they do. Cause I thought they did. But maybe that was some other person. I bet you get an invite now.

——————————————

77.  Mighty Girl (Name: Maggie): One thing I am really into is redheads. Which is why there are so many on the list. KIDDING. Maggie is actually a pretty savvy chick. Her blog has a lot of pictures too, which is good for me when I dont want to read. I get it without the text. Nice.

——————————————

76. Hair for my Princess (Kori): Kori has an extreme niche market, but she is oh-so-fab at what she does. So fab in fact that she has her own book out on Princess Hair Styles, of which I purchased and is currently my daughters favorite toilet read. How is that for advertising?

——————————————

75. Mommyologist (Name: Mary): CUTE CUTE CUTE blog. I mean, overwhelmingly sickening cute. Cute colors, cute layout. I would snuggle up with this blog and give it a kiss. If it were a kid. But only my own cause I dont know where your brat has been.

——————————————

74. Mom To the Screaming Masses (Name: Carmen): Another one of those insane mothers with 6 kids. Which explains why she has right to the point blog posts that take about 20 seconds to read. And which i love.

——————————————

73. Jollymom (Alexa:  Name: Piera): Just a little bit of everything for everyone!

——————————————

72. Crunchy Domestic Goddess (Name: Amy): Amy is one of those natural and green mamas, the kind that I have a hard time getting behind simply because I am so freaking lazy, BUT we love what she does and how she does it. Her message is one that everyone should hear but even more importantly, her blog is good. And that makes me not run away and scream “no, I wont stop taking 2 baths a day!”

——————————————

71. The Not So Blog (Name: Bridgette): I have known Bridgette for 5 years..well before either one of us were ever on the blogging radar map. Truth be told, she started her blog so she could win stuff. She has now blossomed it into an adorable review blog that showcases her in her real life job as a scientist, and her take on the items she reviews. She also has a review team.

——————————————

70. Writing roads ( Name: Julie): To be honest, I am unsure if Julie is a mom. I am going to say no, but I could be wrong..that has been known to happen. I have met Julie. I met her when she spoke at a conference I was at and she is just as interesting and enlightened in person as she is on her blog. Her blog is a niche blog, specializing in the How To’s of being online, writing, PR, marketing, and her blog contains real material that we all should be soaking up. And the best part is that she does it without putting me to sleep- and that takes talent.

——————————————

69.  Finslippy (Name: Alice): Dooce listed her as one of HER favorite reads. What more do I add to that?

——————————————

68. Mommy Goggles (Name: Tanya): Tanya is invited to every trip out there. Every. Trip. She is a 100% review blogger and this is one of the few that I would turn to for an honest opinion. She works with every company, every PR, and knows the background of it all. Hardest working review blogger out there..case closed.

——————————————

67. Cool mom (Name: Daphne): Daphne is like the mom I always wanted to be but am too lazy to be. She has been on Oprah and Dr Phil and as  TV host, and Fox, and is a comedian and….are you sick of it yet? Atleast you know she is just that damn good.

——————————————

66.  Mommy Wants Vodka (Name: Becky): Read her footer. Sign up for her book. Nuff said.

——————————————

65. Mamalogues (Name: Dana): Im getting kinda sick of all the good looking bloggers. Do you know how hard it is to see this perfect hair? I wear sweat pants and no make up almost all day. Dana looks beautiful in all her Momversations videos. I hate you Dana! I hate you! Except your blog. That part I love.

——————————————

64. A Vapid Blonde (Name: Not sure, but her Dh is Tom, right?) Vapid isn’t always a good thing..but in this case, it really is. She may possibly be the only person on the face of the planet with a refrigerator that is worse then mine. By a loooooooooong shot too. Duh, Trisha, she has no kids. So what. She is on my list. Sue me.

——————————————

63. Adventures in Babywearing (Name: Stephanie): Stephanie can give you some fab advice, tips, tricks, and of course awesome items for your little ones, and she does it with style. Excellent blog layout, graphics, and fun to read. Ill even forgive that she hosts on blogger. *cough*

——————————————

62. Home To Heather (Name: Heather)

——————————————

61. Her Bad Mother ( Name: Catherine): She says…bad is the new good. We agree. Now why cant everyone else get on board? You may know Catherine from being a speaker, atleast I’m pretty sure she was a speaker at some conference last year..this year? Who cares, this is about blogging, not speaking. Go read.

——————————————

60. Natalies Sentiments ( Name: Natalie): This is a very sweet blog. Natalies family, in a nutshell, and there is no niche it stands on, nothing specific I am going to point out….while she isn’t Southern (yet, we still have to convert her) the blog comes off very traditional. A quick glance around and you know who she is right away. That’s what many blogs are missing.

——————————————

59. Redneck Mommy (Name: Tanis): See I really don’t hate Canadians…I know you’re thinking it cause there are only like 4 on this list. It just worked out that way. Tanis is a nice mixture of parenting, and parenting through the loss of a child, and has won lots of prestigious things already..which makes being on my list like chum.

——————————————

58. Angry Julie Monday (Name: Julie): No matter what her blog title says, Julie is not angry. Except on Mondays. If you don’t know this about her, julie is in law enforcement. Which is just….cool. Plus, I’m pretty sure she could kick my ass.

——————————————

57. Girls Gone Child (Name: Rebecca): Rebecca has a badass last name. Woolfe. I wonder often if that is a real last name or like one of those made up last names like Worthington uses. Me likey her blog either way.

——————————————

56. Anns rants (Name: Ann): Just like it says..Anns Rants. And don’t we all wish we had a place to just say the sh*t we think? Oh..wait. We do. Except my dad reads mine so I have to tone it down. Maybe Ill start emailing Ann my rants. Guest Rants.

——————————————

55. From Dates to Diapers (Name: Christine): Christine is one of the moms with her hands on the pulse of what mom wants, needs, and should be buying. Anyone with that many kids and can still carve enough time out to travel and be the face of brands deserves a pat on the back. Wonder woman!

——————————————

54.  Chic Shopper Chick (Name: Erika): Erika has the low down on all upcoming fashions, fashionistas, trends, and the not-so-trendy, going around. I’m a pretty crappy dresser no matter what I read. But its fun to pretend!

——————————————

53.  Blog 4 Mom (Name: Shellie): While mostly behind the scenes in 2009, Shellie hit the mainstream in controversial tweeting after the tragic loss of her son in December 2009. Her blog has now become a tour de force online. It will be interesting to see where her journey takes her in 2010.

——————————————

52. Another Ordinary Miracle (Name: Adrienne): Adrienne shares her beautiful story of bringing adoption into her family. Meet Owen and Lily, a little boy from Russia, and a little girl from Korea, who came a long way in their journey to be with their mommy and daddy. Touching and inspirational.

——————————————

51. Mom Spark (Name: Amy): Just like it says….a little spark in your day! Amy is actually more well known for her blog Mom Made That and its a great way to showcase mom blogs and businesses. We love the support!

——————————————

50. AccidentalMommies (Name: Kim): Kim, while you may or may not know her blog, is the genius behind 100s of mom blog tweaks and helps. She gives more of herself then anyone I know. For that, she rounds out my top #50. Without people like kim, the rest of us are just schmucks trying to look cool…she helps us pull it off. Spank you kimmy.

——————————————

49. The Daily Blonde (Name: Cheryl): Asshat Award? I’m only offended I have never been on this blog before. Cause its awesome. And what woman can pull off the hair cut she rocks? Her and Dooce. Thats about it. *jealous*

——————————————

48. Velveteen Mind (Name: Megan): Megan is actually a real writer. Not one of us that throws up words with poo-poo grammar. Which means you should thoroughly enjoy what she writes. Or atleast be able to decipher it.

——————————————

47. Mama Kat’s Losin It: (Name: Kat):I have always wondered what she is drinking in her header…wine? Vodka? Whatever it is, I hope she keeps it flowing because Mama Kat and her writing workshop single handedly provide blog topics all over the net. In fact, I’m pretty sure the blogosphere would collapse like the housing market if she up and quit that one day.

——————————————

46. Real Life Blog (Name: Sarah): Again, another blogger I have met in person and I *think* I scare her. Its OK, Sarah, I have that affect on people. She is the calm to my crazy and we have to have both kinds in the world, right? Get to know her as a person and stop by her blog weekly. She is going places…fo sho.

——————————————

45. Pajamas and Coffee ( Name: MaryMac): Someone once told me that Mary is a stalker online. And I’m not denying that could be true…but she uses the F word a lot on her blog and its  hilarious. Plus, she has good taste in books. Just please don’t stalk me. One lawyer a year is all I can afford.

——————————————

44. The Shewbridges:  (Name Lorie) Lorie is probably one of the most supportive bloggers I know. Everywhere I go on the net, she is there. She comments as if commenting was food and she was a starving cat. We need more bloggers like her, more supportive women like her, online. Nothing but love, baby.

——————————————

43. Scary Mommy Name: Jill): Time and time again Jill’s name comes up when asked “who do you visit the most” and that has to be a good thing! You know its funny that I always think that promos are taking over the blogosphere cause when you dive in super deep, there is some really fabulous content.

And this is one of those places.

——————————————

42. Petite Elefant (Name: Allison): Im sorry to send you to a blog that has a 6 foot tall (ok, so i don’t really know if she is 6 foot tall, but when you are 5 foot standing next to her, she is) gorgeous woman that writes for it, but unfortunately I have to. Her blog posts are just that good that Ill forgive her. Just this once. And the little elefant is so cute.

——————————————

41. Crazy Adventures in Parenting (Name: Lisa): Sometimes when I go to Lisas blog I feel like I am the one with 6 kids. Which means she is a good, no great, blogger. Lisa is also excellent about reciprocal comments and always interacts with her readers on her blog. Plus, I just like her. I met her, again at a conference (see they are worth going for that sometimes!), and she is blogo-fabulous.

I just made that word up.

——————————————

40. 5 minutes for mom (Names: Janice & Susan): At every conference, around every bend, its the dynamic duo Janice and Susan. I am quite sure I don’t need an introduction for these two moms, who have been around about as long as the blogosphere has been. Even if they think I wrote a blog about them…and I didn’t.

It really was some other blogger.

——————————————

39. Type A Mom (Name: Kelby); Hello. Its Kelby. Type A Mom. Type A Conference. 02983402938402874 Twitter friends. Kelby is one of the few bloggers I know that can as “big” as she is, but still sit down and shoot the sh*t with. In short, she is who she says she is, honest, but helpful, passionate, but kind. *hug* *tear*

——————————————

38.  Mom Generations (Name: Audrey): After Audrey started her 365 days of Fashion, she really took off. But I have known her much longer then that…you know those “remember whens”? We have those.

Which means I am famous by association.

——————————————

37. Nie Nie ( Name: Stephanie): Stephanie’s family was in a terrible plane crash and she is back to blogging, happy to be alive with her 4 children and husband. She is a practicing Mormon, includes real touching lifestyle photography, but I have to tell you that I cant figure out how to leave comments and that just blows. I really like to interact with the bloggers I read, and so this one leaves me a bit sour. I’m sure she probably gets too many that it overloads the system so Ill forgive this time. Comments or no comments, you really should add her to your reader.

——————————————

36. ExtraordinaryMommy ( Name: Danielle): Last year Danielle’s most memorable post was when a friend of hers saw her family Christmas card photo in Prague on an advertisement. It has to be hands down the BEST blog post I have ever read. But even before that blog post made her debut (and heathers family as semi-celebrities), heather was well known in the blogosphere for her mom TV shows and website. Hop on over and check her out!

——————————————

35. Playgroups are No Place for Children (Name: Jennifer): Jennifer has one of those blogs we love to hate because its witty, and funny, and cool stuff happens to her she can blog about. Plus, she writes about how you shouldn’t give up or compares yourself to others.

——————————————

34. Miss Britt (Name: Britt): I am not sure why Britt reminds me of like 1984 Madonna..you know, the “Gonna Dress you up in my Love” Madonna. The problem is, I am not nearly as cool as she is and we don’t hang in the same cliques, so she doesn’t know me, BUT i wish we were friends. In my head we are…the one where I’m the stalker? Hmm. Maybe that’s not in my head.

——————————————

33. Bookie Boo (Name: Leah): Straight out of the gate with her Mamavation program, Leah was everywhere- even in 2009 hot water at one point-and handled it fabulously. Every one loves her and she appears to love every one. Even more importantly she is making real progress in helping others help themselves. We call that inspiration.

——————————————

32. A Cowboys Wife (Name: Lori): Lori is a great blogger and she has her style all over her blog. Its awesome when you can really pick out who someone is just by going to their page and we have no doubt who Lori is. My only complaint is that she doesn’t blog enough! Its perhaps because she is spending time over on her second blog My Wooden Spoon, which includes a ton of food I will never ever be able to make on my own. But its fun to pretend.

——————————————

31. 13 and counting (Name: Sandi) How do you have 13 kids and nothing to write about? You don’t. You have lots, and lots, and lots of adventures and unlimited content. Which is why we love Sandi. Curl up with chips and a soda, cause you wont be getting up awhile as you weed through all of the posts. There was some recent drama on her site when one of her sons attempted suicide and he came on to blog about his experience. I thought it was a very brave thing to blog. Others said it was for attention only and how could she blog about her son, blah blah. I say, thank God we have people like her willing to take the risk to share a story that could help others.

——————————————

30. 3 Kids and Us (Name: Cat) I know Cat very well. That isnt the reason she made the list. She made the list because her blog tends to be a very well rounded mom blog that includes so much material that you feel like she is your next door neighbor…of course one you can regularly peek inside to see. From the gross diaper stories, to the heartwarming family hilarity, she has a bit of it all.

——————————————

29. Tip Junkie (Name: Lorrie) Hello. 13K subscribers. If you haven’t been, you have wasted a LOT of time already, so get. Go. Scoot. If you are like me and love to create things, but you dont have an original idea in your body, head over and really get a gander at the projects, activities, and best of all, inspiration, that looms on that blog.

——————————————

28. Ohana Mama (Name: Sarah): Aside from being incredibly gorgeous, Sarah lives in Hawaii, generally a vacation for most normal people. Appearing in guest spots on Momversations, her own up and coming product, and a soon to be travel blogger, Sarah has carved out a nice niche for the rest of us to dream over.

——————————————

27. Pretty Pink Chandelier (Name: Nicole): If you haven’t been by to Nicoles blog, you are seriously missing out. She is one cutting lose, funny, video filming, and heart writing, chick. Somehow between the laughs and the real emotional moments, I think she is someone that you just understand. And that’s pretty real sentiment just from a blog site. Btw, nicole, no one can spell ‘chandelier’. You might as well picked supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.

——————————————

26. Dooce (Name: Heather): TRISHA! OMG. How could DOOCE be #26? You have lost all credibility. Sure. I know. But dooce is dooce and she is awesome and she really doesn’t need my numbers to tell her that. Besides she doesn’t even follow me on twitter. And she only returned my emails once. *which still felt like christmas*

——————————————

25. Yo Mamas Blog (Name: Yvonne): Funny. Funny. Funny. Don’t open her blog around your kids. Unless, well, you don’t care about them. Then by all means..flip on and turn to the snow man post. Guaranteed nightmares for the rest of their little lives.

——————————————

24. The Mogul Mom (Name: Heather): Heather provides some very solid advice on her blog. When I am looking for information about my business or blog, this is the first blog I pull up and search. She is also a coach and recently even directed me somewhere that could really help me out on a project. She is not only knowledgeable, her information comes tested, tried, and true. Put this one in your bookmarks.

——————————————

23. Skimbaco Lifestyle (Name: Katja): While visiting Katja in the past, her blog was a variety of content but as the time passed she became more and more focused. As a result, her quality has been impeccable, and the projects she has been involved in would give any mommy stars in her eyes. From red carpets to the Oscars, this is one mom leading the way.

——————————————

22. Skip to my Lou (Name: Cindy): Cindy has an amazing blog for those creative types out there. Her blog is perky, her pictures are helpful, and she is a must visit when you are cruisin’ and perusin’.

——————————————

21.  MomSpective: (Name: Julie) Julie does not get enough recognition for her blog. She is hella funny on facebook. If facebook was a blog, she would be #1.

And I don’t even believe that whole casting couch with Walmart thing.

I swear.

——————————————

20. Cutie Booty Cakes (Name: Renee): With some big Wii endorsements behind her, Renee has set the pace to grow her blog and change her life. She has been on trips, commercials, red carpet. I am not sure there was a blog event around that I didn’t see Renee on last year. Def bloggy elite in 2009.

——————————————

19. Resourceful mommy: (Name: Amy) Amy is the twitter reigning queen, but more then that, she is just a nice person. Amy has her hands in a million pots and all those pots turn to gold. You can expect a straight, albeit a politically correct one, shooter and she is worth the tweet..and the read.

——————————————

18.  To Think is To Create: (Name: Arianne): Beautiful layout, photography, and a simple to navigate blog, Arianne makes our top 100 with room to spare. Going from my blog to hers is like going from a crazy mall to a nice sunny beach. Sure, they are both fun, but you can really relax on her blog. She really balances her feelings and her lifestyle right along side any promotional type posts. Its not forced…she just is.

——————————————

17. Pioneer Woman (Name: Ree) Another one of those Blog Super Stars that really dont need to be holding down a top spot to know they are a top spot. Cookbooks, social pages, book tours. I’m not sure where Ree finds the time to even snap the pictures…but she does, and she does it well. Impressive blog and marketing to say the very, very least.

——————————————

16. Queen of Spain: (Name: Erin): Erin once told me her job was, how did she put it, to be the gatekeeper of the blogosphere? I don’t remember the exact words, but I knew what she was getting at. Erin is a balls to the wall Democrat that also writes for BlogHer and doesn’t exactly keep her opinions to herself.  And I saw her boobs on someones site. They were big.

——————————————

15. Creative Junkie (Name: Andrea) Andrea is an up and comer that you may, or may not, know. Her blog style is funny, witty, and comical. If you haven’t had a chance to stop into her world, its time you do.  Plus, she leaves comments on my blog, which I have to enjoy before all of you realize you need to shoot her straight to superstardom. Don’t go to her blog before your done with this list..cause you wont be coming back.

——————————————

14. Moosh In Indy (Name: Casey): Casey once told me she is shy..and to her credit, she does appear that way. But her blog is raw and real. Its some of the best writing on the net. I wouldn’t lie about something this important.

——————————————

13. Steam me up, Kid ( Name: Becky): This blog is pee-in-your-pants disturbingly funny.

——————————————

12. No Time For Flashcards (Name: Allie): For moms who actually do stuff with their kids and can prove it. This site is a mecca of coolness, wrapped up in easy to follow categories, that give you a reason to interact with your kids. And not just for dinner either.

——————————————

11. Boobs, Injuries, and Dr Pepper (Name: Crystal): What Can I say that hasn’t already been said, blogged about, hated against, twittered about. Crystal is damn near one of the most REAL bloggers out there.

I don’t care what you say.

——————————————

10. Jessica Gottlieb (Name: Jessica): Referred to (atleast behind her back) as the Israeli Army of Twitter, Jessica Gottlieb makes zero apologies for telling you to take your snack cakes and twitter parties and shoving them up your…well, she would never say that. In middle 2009, Jessica and I had a public falling out where she upset me so bad I quit twitter for 2 months. Now we talk on the phone. Funny how that crap happens. And on her 2nd, 3rd(?) Dr Phil show in 2009, she made a splash in America’s households as well.

——————————————

9. Momdot (Name: Trisha): There is little doubt that 2009 was this blogs year. From obscurity to fame overnight, I made more then a few splashes last year. 22 mainstream articles, national news organizations, radio interviews, and more…you say you want a revolution? It started here. Sorry about that.

——————————————

8. Poop On Peeps (Name: Chicken Liver) Truth be told..we don’t really know this bloggers name. We don’t even agree with everything she says. And we certainly don’t like that she uses a fake name. That being said…the blog has a lot of valid points and says the stuff you wish you could say. Am I right?

We have been informed she has closed her blog after 3 years…no, i wont be adding someone else in this spot.

7. Barefoot Foodie ( Name: Brittany) Even though Brittany  stopped being my friend in public, (though I still squiggle her name in hearts on my trapper keeper) after I called her friend a douche (and he was being one), Im going to list her because she is a spectacular blogger. Her italics are in all the rights spots and I just get her. And I’m still hoping she puts up a nude some day.

——————————————

6. My Charming Kids (Name: Jennifer): Don’t be fooled by the fact that she fell 5 spots from our 2008 Top Mom Blog List, fool you. She was our #1…the only direction she could go was this one. Her content, drama, pictures, appearances, all of it for 2009 were right on target. Love her or hate her, the fact is you know her. And that is why she claims a top spot out of our 100.

5.  Hope for Peyton (Name: Anissa): Well known already, Anissa shot to superstardom online when the bloggy world came to a halt for prayers, donations, and minute by minute social networking updates on the stroke that sent Anissa Meyhew to the hospital for months. Her husband took over her blog and did it well, combining wit and reality that made this blog an overnight success and one of the top blogs of 2009. We are happy to report that Anissa is home and on her way to recovery.

4.  Sphors are Multiplying (Name: Heather): After a tragic year, Heather took her online notoriety and used it to help her, and others, heal in the death of her daughter Maddie. one of the first widespread blogosphere campaigns that cultivated into a massive support group, Maddie Sphor is one little girl that will never be forgotten. Heather also made several speaking appearances and welcomed her newest child in just a few mere weeks ago. Congrats.

3. Bakerella (Name: Angie): Aside from being eye candy, this blog is pure REAL candy. Oozes Candy. And Cakes. And Goodies. I don’t even know half the ingredients she talks about. I’m convinced she makes them up. Nonetheless, have your bookmarks ready.

——————————————

2. Deal Seeking Mom: (Name: Tara)  Tara has one of the most widely visited mom blogs on the net and while you may not know her by name, and no, she isn’t a content writer but a niche writer, there is no doubt that she has taken over large.

1. The Bloggess (Name: Jenny): Sex. Drugs. Teen Fans. Wigs. Weird internet searches. ..so there ya have it.  All the larvette you ever wanted.

Want to compare this list to our Top 50 Mom Blogs of 2008?

P.S. Btw, I learned a lot doing this list. A lot about blogs…I always do. Ill be doing a post coming up about what makes a blog stand out. After you visit 100s of blogs, you start to “get it”.  But it will be on Top Mom Blogger, not MomDot.
