This Salutation Will Not Be Publicized

Wasted away again in Libertyville. Along with its dead-tree edition, the Daily Herald also has a logrolling edition. Mention the Daily Herald in your blog and the Daily Herald may return the favor:
What's a sign you're from the suburbs? "Having appeared in the Daily Herald at least once in your lifetime." So says digital site Thrillist, which includes placement in our pages among other qualifiers, such as having gone to Six Flags Great America with your high school physics class and knowing your exact proximity to the nearest Portillo's.
You know you're from the 'burbs when...
Can free media be that easy -- who knew?

Will the Daily Herald reward your shoutout with a h/t and link to your website? In the interest of science, your LakeCountyEye has been commissioned to test the hypothesis with a clinical trial. The design is as elegant as it is simple: (a) Compile some stupid Internet Top 10 List. (b) Salt it with a reference to the Daily Herald. (c) See what happens ...
Ten Signs You're from Lake County
  1. The Neighbor Dog Ate Your Daily Herald Once in His Lifetime

  2. Wrongfully Convicted

  3. You Know the Fastest Shortcuts Under the Route 53 Extension

  4. Registered to Vote at the Lake County Election Commission

  5. Favorite Ben & Jerry Flavor: Scoop o'the Loop

  6. You Don't Count Sheep at Night -- You Count Canadian National Oil-Cars

  7. Been Stuck on a Great America Ride ... 8 Hours ... and Counting

  8. Dated Princess Nudelman

  9. "I served with G.I. Joe. I knew G.I. Joe. G.I. Joe was a friend of mine. Sir, you're no G.I. Joe."

  10. Lake County Eye? Never Heard of It
Look for your LakeCountyEye in a Daily Herald near you.
