This week we'll be counting down Somerville Patch's most clicked-on stories of 2012, starting with number 30 and working our way toward the number one story of the year.
We'll post five stories a day until revealing 2012's top five stories. You'll have supply your own drumroll.
These are stories Somerville Patch readers clicked on, for whatever reason, and the list is based solely on online traffic numbers.
In other words, it is not a thoughtful list of Somerville's most important and significant stories of the year—although some of the most clicked-on stories would belong on such a list.
