At December's end, the Log Cabin Democrat compiles online user data to measure the prominence of news stories while considering community impact to rank the top 10 stories of the year. Those 10 are shared in our print product as well as online.


Because our print audience differs from our online market, we've compiled another list using recent user data to show what our most popular stories were at www.thecabin.net in the year 2011.
