2019 Year in Review: Posts
It’s the end of a decade, campers! (Or the eve of the beginning of the year that will mark the end of a decade, if you just like to be controversial.) And sure, there are plenty of “let’s-wrap-up-this-ten-year-lovefest” commemorative posts, articles, and YouTube clips out there. But that seems like an awful lot of work. So let’s just focus on the last twelve months, shall we?
These are the posts that got the most sets of eyeballs this year. Stay tuned for next week, when I cover the best books I read in 2019.
