A discussion at Cut on the Bias about Instalanches, Biaslides, QuickRushes, and the like comes into sharp focus with this as an example. I made a post on Thursday evening, and last night, Susanna linked to it. This is a cut-and-paste except from my last twenty referrals, from my counter service:
The top half of the second page follows a similar pattern.
(note: I have altered the entries for numbers 13 and 16; I felt they contained information that need not be divulged. My point was to show how a simple link from an established, respected blogger can make a tremendous impact on a smaller blog.)
So, you see, it's not a "barely over the banks wash" when you link someone, Susanna. It's not the thousands of visitors of an Instapundit, or even the 200 of an Inappropriate Response, but it is certainly noteworthy. I think you are selling yourself short by downplaying your impact.

You just made my day, Scutum! I'll try to wash a few more your way when I'm back in action in NJ.
