I found that (SE blog) Announcing The Launch Of Meta Stack Exchange and (SO blog) Announcing The Launch Of Meta Stack Exchange are absolutely the same, right down to the comments. No redirect, just duplication. Why?
What is meta?
- Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
- The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
- Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:
It's the exact same blog post (and the exact same blog), just available at two different URLs.
In fact, if you look at the HTML source for either of the pages, you'll find the tag:
That tag is there to tell search engines that the official URL of this blog post is the one with the host name blog.stackoverflow.com; the blog.stackexchange.com address is just an alias.
Update: As of December 2015 (at least), blog.stackexchange.com now redirects to blog.stackoverflow.com, probably due to the recent company-wide name change / rebranding of Stack Exchange, Inc. to Stack Overflow.
