Your top 5 in 2014: Articles you loved

Posted November 17, 2014, by Jordan Huidekoper

If you’re like us, then you face a terrible decision at the end of each workday:

Do you close all those article tabs you so optimistically opened?

Should you bookmark them for another day?

Or do you give up altogether because, let’s face it, there’s only so much advice one can take!

If this feeling is familiar, then you are certainly not alone. Earlier this year, New Zealand researchers from Victoria University found that we’re all reading more text than ever online, but that we also struggle to remember what on earth it was saying in the first place.

But don’t despair, because we’re getting to that wonderful time of year when content managers like us sort through the year’s winners and losers, and remind you of the things you really liked (or, wanted to read but never got around to).

So open these up in your browser and get ready to bask in self-satisfaction when you’ve consumed the top clicks of 2014 in one hit.
