TOP BLOGS: According to a new report from research firm Konector on the top-50 beauty blogs, Temptalia, and Basenotes are the top three beauty blogs garnering more than 500,000 viewers a month. Kingsley Maunder, a director at Konector, explained the leading blogs typically focus on a “very particular topic or target market” to generate a “large, regular following that spend a significant amount of time on the site.” The report found that two of the fastest growing beauty blogs are and xSparkage, which utilize YouTube to communicate about beauty. The report measured how many people visit each blog, how often they visit and how active they are on the blog to rank beauty blogs.

Konector has released the full article, which you can read in its entirety here.  Konector leads with headline, “Temptalia is the most influential beauty blog.”  Amazing. Absolutely amazing.

THANK YOU TEMPTETTES! (Temptalia readers are affectionately known as “Temptettes.”)  This is amazing-super-exciting news that really just shows how amazing all of you that read Temptalia are.  Without your readership, feedback, suggestions, and comments, this blog would be nothing like it is today.  Your support and encouragement since the beginning (back in October 2006!) have paved the road to every success and opportunity we’ve managed to obtain.  Temptalia grows because of you–by your word of mouth–and we have only you to thank for our success today and going forward.

    Congratulations Christine! Un saludo desde México (A hi from México), I’m really glad that you’re being very sucessfull with this, i’ve been reading this blog since september 2008 (i think, could’ve been before, i love the very informative post, and in depth reviews that you make, i place the information i get from here above other beauty blogs, as for pursebuzz, her blog is really informative as well, is always good to check others people perspective, xsparkage’s blog i do not like, still needs a lot of work on everything, but that’s just my opinion! I gotta go, i still need to read your other post of today!!!

    Christine, congratulations!! I just love your blog, I’m on it at lease 3x a day. You are a wealth of information, so much so that I have the MA’s at my M.A.C store in NYC coming over to your blog!! Each time I go into the store I know more than they do, so one of them asked me if you don’t work for M.A.C how do you know all this?? Temptalia baby is the answer I give them. Thank you for making this beauty lover broke.I wish you much more success.
