Pink's readership, however, is growing, with around 200k daily readers and steadily increasing month over month readership (last month was 5.4M readers). Michelle, on the other hand, has declining daily readership around 110k, and steady monthly readership around 3.4M. These stats were drawn from the SiteMeter statistics that each blog links to on their home page.
Of course, there are a number of issues related to reading site meter stats. However, it just goes to show that the in link isn't always the most important predictor of influence (or, advertising potential which is at least of equal importance at these lofty heights).
