We’ve been keeping our search for the next wave of top mom blogs highly under wraps since our initial announcement.

Check it out again if you missed it, but here’s the gist.

We’re looking to highlight bloggers with:

  • voice
  • something valuable to say
  • that certain something that makes you spend hours lost in their archives
  • sites that are new or still under the radar of the big awards

The Nominees

We asked our readers and we asked some of the mom bloggers that we admire. (lots of links)
And we got great feedback!

Naturally, not everyone can will, but we’ve narrowed the field down to ten finalists.

Tomorrow, we’ll reveal the winners!

So if you had something to add…”speak now or forever hold your peace”…I mean, we would love to hear it!

Drumroll please…..

The Finalists

In no particular order. Of course!

  1. But I Do Have a Law Degree
  2. The Naptown Organizer
  3. Let Why Lead
  4. Lil Kids Things
  5. Seven Seas of Rhye
  6. Expatria Baby
  7. Five Kids is a Lot of Kids
  8. By Any Other Name
  9. Life in Pint-Sized Form (Not exactly a mom, but a provider of excellent parenting insights.)
  10. Jason Good (Yes, he’s also not a mom. But he blogs about parenting. And he’s amazing.)

What do you think? Is there someone on here that you just love? A blogger that you know could really use and benefit from this boost?

    Shannon – Thanks for putting out such fabulous content! You were actually recommended by another blogger we love and as soon as I started reading your blog, I knew we had to include you.

    Thanks, Erica! We have heard from a lot of the bloggers that we consulted for nominations (that’s how we were lucky enough to come across you actually!) that one of the best things about this list will be a way to find great new blogs to follow. We’re glad you feel the same way; you’ve got great company here.

    Oh – a pink puffy heart! That would be a great award badge . . . if only we could figure out a good way to make puffiness work in 2D. Hmmm…we’ll work on that.

    Thank you so much for stopping by and endorsing TNO, Kathy. We wish we could all have a nice blogger coffee meet-up, too 🙂

    Emma, that is so awesome. Feedback likes this is what makes us so happy to feature moms we love!

    I’m curious about what she’s taught you that you’ve never heard of. We’re planning to feature some favorite posts from each winning blogs, so thanks in advance for any that you’ve saved and want to pass along.

    Michelle, you are so right. It’s so scary when your kids are young to discover how completely surrounded, immersed and pumped with chemicals we all are every day! It’s wonderful to have someone out there blazing a path to show us all how to do things differently.

    We’re so glad to hear that you approve of our picks!

    Wow, Alaka. That is heavy praise! (that you never cared about blogs before TNO)

    But everything you said is exactly what we were looking for – not going super crazy with contests, discussing things that moms want to know in a way that want to hear – so it’s great to hear that we were right on the mark!

    You should check out some of TNO’s fellow finalists. You might find some more reasons to care about blogs 🙂

    Julie, you are amazing! We are so happy to highlight you.

    And that speech is totally Oscar quality 🙂

    We’re really so glad that this contest is able to bring so many great new bloggers to the attention of those who love to read and learn!
