Cajun Radio’s Most Popular Posts of 2011
Big "Swamp People" fan, are you? If you said, 'no,' we don't believe you! The numbers tell us otherwise.
This year, as the show entered it's third season on The History Channel, "Swamp People" was more popular than ever, and every time we turned around to write about it, we found our web hits skyrocketing. And yet, even the mighty "Swamp People" couldn't claim the top spot in this year's countdown. (These were the top 10 stories of the year on Cajunradio.net as measured by page views.)
So what stories did you find to be the most engaging in 2011? Well, let's see...
It was a wild year in popularity for the "Swamp People," and back in August, Mike Soileau asked you who your favorite characters on the show were.
People couldn't wait for the new season of "Swamp People" to return to the airwaves. It didn't disappoint.
Mike Soileau had a little fun with people on this headline. It's not a story about a main cast member, but rather about Bruce Mitchell’s faithful sidekick, Tyler -- the dog.
When the legendary FOX show came to Lake Charles to cover the story of Joe Constance, the entire community wanted to know more. Hopefully, the show -- which has been so successful in so many cases -- can make something happen in this case, too.
Talk about slick. The Tigers were looking amazing in their contest against Auburn, and we brought you a sneak preview of these one-night-only uniforms.
"Swampsgiving," eh? Well, it's the "Swamp People," and nothing surprises us anymore!
A chance to meet your favorite characters on the show? Who could pass that up?
When it comes to LSU and Alabama, it can get vicious quick. These were some of the funniest images hitting Facebook as the two titans met for the first time during the season.
This is the story that wouldn't quit -- remaining at the top of the charts for our website since we published it in July. Originally, the headline just said 'Saturday' without the date. We thought maybe people were continuing to click on the story because they thought it was still upcoming. We made sure to add the date to the end to stop the confusion. It didn't stop people from clicking on it, though.
In the ultimate "local boy does good" story, Little Hunter Hayes showed that he isn't so little anymore. He's climbing the country music charts after years of being a Cajun music prodigy, and this year he opened for Taylor Swift. Here's to hoping he has an even better 2012!
