*My* Top 10 Favorite Mommy Bloggers of 2010

I wrote about the completely inaccurate (in my opinion) list of Top 50 Mommy Bloggers as chosen by Babble.com a few weeks ago. While there is absolutely no way that I could sit and list my favorite 50 blogs, I do want to give end of the year credit to my favorite ten. Blogging is all about networking and making friends. I connect with bloggers who make me think, make me laugh, and who are honest and open in their thoughts and opinions. While there are dozens upon dozens of you that I feel really deserve to be mentioned, I can’t list all of you. But I do encourage you to go check out each of the ladies listed below and make sure to tell them that I sent you. {These blogs are listed in no particular order…other than just being listed from the first one that I got to in my reader…}

My Bloggy Life: Way back at the end of 2009, I met Mandi via blog hopping. And though we’ve gone from bloggy friends to real life friends somewhere along the line, Mandi’s writing has been an inspiration and an encouragement to me for many, many months. She writes from her heart and has a style that draws you in and keeps you there.

One Mom’s Perfect Imperfection: Courtney and I discovered through the realm of blogging, tweeting and Facebook that she and I are long lost twins. We share a passion for photography and adorable children (hers are beyond precious!) and our friendship has grown over the year. Again, it was her blog and her writing that kept me around. Her writing is witty and clever and she never ceases to crack me up.

From Here to Eternity: Ah. What on Earth can I say to give justice to Jhen’s unparalleled blog? Her blog inspires me, mesmerizes me, and challenges me. She writes in a way that always makes me think and always stirs some sort of emotion: whether it is thoughtfulness, laughter or heavy-heartedness from her honest and open posts. She’s a definite must read.

The Mommyologist: Mary’s blog is witty and humorous and she always, always makes me smile. Her journey toward bringing Mom Sexy back has encouraged me and brought me back to a place of personal contentment that I haven’t been at in a long, long time.

How to Survive Life in the Suburbs: Another blog that leaves me rolling on the floor and keeps me focused on the humor in life. “Modern Mom” always reminds me that a) things could be worse and b) I am not alone in the chaos and insanity that is life.  

MckMama
: My guilty pleasure blog. While I adore the precious photos of her children and many of her posts, I’ll be honest when I say that the controversy that surrounds her blog fascinates me as much-if not more-than anything else. There are some blogs that you read and can’t really explain why…and this is one of those for me. Maybe that’s why they call them guilty pleasures? Either way…I read it.

Aspire: I discovered this blog via blog hopping. I don’t remember how I found her, I don’t remember what led me there, but I’ve been stuck ever since. Fascinated by the content and the beautiful photography, and the fact that the author is still in high school. Such a wise girl for such a young age…reminds me of myself (okay, I’m totally kidding on the latter of that comment).

Bring the Rain: I found Angie’s blog at the end of last year and her writing has inspired me ever since. Her openness toward hurt and pain, her honesty when things got tough, and the faith that she portrays brings tears to my eyes nearly every time I stop by.

A Sorta Fairytale: Another blog friend turned real friend. I was drawn to Mandy’s blog first by her photography, and then by her writing. Her precious baby boy Bennett and her honesty and positive outlook toward life make her easy to get to know and a fabulous read any day of the week.

Madeline Bea: Another blog that drew me in first by its photos and then by its content. Maegan has a beautiful spirit and her outlook on life leaves me in awe. She writes deeply and thoughtfully and always leaves me wanting to read and learn more from her positive outlook.

Make sure to head over and visit every one of these ladies. Look around, read what they have to offer and get to know them. Each one has something unique to bring to the table and I promise you’ll be glad you stopped by.

Here’s to one last day of 2010! Hope everyone has a safe New Year’s Eve! I’ll see you all next year!!
