â€śFire Till We Dieâ€ť
We started blogging on Wordpress in July 2011. In late September we moved over to Bloguin and in October we had our first opportunity to cover the Fire from the media side. In November 2011 we were featured for the first time in the "Chicago Fire Fanzine". Not only did we contribute our first article to the fanzine, but we also contributed the photo that was used on the cover.
In February of 2012, Hook N Ladders announced a partnership with the new site, MLSfltr.com. MLSfltr is a site that publishes short (100 words) snippets of each game on the MLS calendar with a member of each clubs press pool contributing to the site. Hook N Ladders is the Chicago Fire contributor to the site.
