Written by Christopher Dawson, Contributor on

Every year our trusty editor sends us out a list of our stories that generated the most traffic for the year. Sometimes these are our most controversial, other times they're especially newsworthy, and occasionally we just write about something important in our niche that goes viral. From my top 25, I've narrowed it down to the 10 most relevant, interesting, or at least worth a reread. They appear in order of traffic - feel free to submit your own stories in the talkbacks from around the web this year that you feel are worth a second look...Enjoy, and Happy Holidays, folks!
