Just noticed McHenry County Blog has passed the 7,500 article milestone. Over 1.75 million visits to the web site since October, 2005.
I hope I have managed to live up to what’s under the masthead:
“This is a journal of news and opinion designed to bring to light matters of public interest and to encourage public participation in the governmental process. Emphasis will be on McHenry County, but Illinois state news will be covered.”
23,000 have tried to figure out who this Cal Skinner guy is. I’ll make it easy for you. Below is most of what is published there:
- Industry: Government
- Occupation: Tax Fighter
- Location: Crystal Lake : Illinois : United States
