Should a sitewide link to my blog be nofollow?

Hi All,

I`m looking after two sites on two different domains with one shared blog. The blog is on one domain. On the other domain there is a sitewide link to the blog. Should this be a no-follow link to avoid any potential penalties? Thanks for your help in advance. Rob

    I think it would be safer, because in essence if G bot had to look closely you have created a Pyramid, not intentionally, but that is a possible perception.

    I agree with + but I also wouldn`t worry if it makes sense and seems natural. Google has done a good job at making people more cautious about their linking strategies.
