It’s that time again… a look back before we start 2013.

All week, we have been counting down with the most popular stories of the year in each one of Borderstan’s content categories. Today, however, we present to you, the Top 25 most popular stories (overall) that appeared on in 2012.

The web is forever, so they say. Posted stories continue to get hits a long time after originally going up on the site. As a result, some of the most-read stories for the year were sometimes published the year before — especially if they were published late the year before.
