Now on the McHenryCountyBlog

A deal sure to rock the blogosphere like not since AOL acquired Huffington Post, the McHenryCountyBlog and the LakeCountyEye are announcing plans to form a strategic partnership. With overhead and costs of maintaining an Internet blog soaring, the two Chicago suburban blogs have agreed to combine resources in a measure to offset eroding return-site-visits and poor quarterly earnings.

One feature of the partnership requires each blog to post passive links to the other blog's posts. Although regarded as friendly rivals, industry analysts note that there is little chance of visitor poaching as the overlap between either blog's market-base is negligible. The deal is widely perceived as win-win for all parties.

The cooperative deal was unveiled today when the McHenryCountyBlog posted a repro of some year-old LakeCountyEye posts:

Lake County Dem Does Opposition Research on Kent Gaffney
It is unclear the role that Hairdresser On The Move - Ted plays in the deal.

Although the above link has been posted to fulfill the agreement for reciprocal passive links between the two blogs -- operatives are warned not to click on the image above at risk of inducing a cascading browser infinite regress.

Commenting on the new cooperative arrangement, your LakeCountyEye observed: "Now that it's bound into a partnership with those public sector pensioners, this blog is going to have to retire that lame public-sector-pensioners gag."

The public sector pensioners at the McHenryCountyBlog were unavailable for comment.
