Top 100 Beauty and Fashion blogs

Recently, as I was checking my stats, I discovered that one of the referring pages was Top 100 Beauty and Fashion Blogs of 2012 from  That's right - The Style Page made the list.  I don't know what criteria used.   Certainly, its criteria didn't include blog traffic and blogs weren't ranked by blog traffic.  Still, it was gratifying to be listed next to Temptalia.

Here's what said about The Style Page:

The simple, streamlined Style Page began in 2001 and has since evolved into a go-to source for makeup and skincare reviews, beauty industry news and more. Look for the occasional fashion posts and interviews with beauty insiders as well.

It was gratifying that it seemed that someone took some to review The Style Page blog and find out what's it about.

Still, I have to be grounded about this.  Andrea at Savvy Blogging writes in her article Compensation, Worth, Lists…and a flash back to Junior High:

And then I realized something. Blogging lists are like sitting at the cool table in junior high. ... So if you made the list, Congrats! If you didn’t make the list, Congrats!

Indeed.  I had the experience of being extended an invitation to a beauty bloggers network, only to have the same person rescind the invitation because I didn't have the blog traffic.  Who's in, who's out, who's cool, who's not - just like junior high.
