TJ: The best of 2019

Share this page

Written by Jon Kennard on 23 December 2019 in Features

Editor Jon Kennard looks at the most popular content of the last 12 months. 

A man who dares to waste one hour of time has not discovered the value of life. Or so said Charles Darwin, at some point between about 1811 and 1882. We can't all be groundbreaking evolutionary biologists, but a productive use of one's time becomes all the more imperative as more is demanded of us.

So, here we round up the most popular content of 2019. To reappraise the year gone by; to provide a snapshot of what was published and discussed on TJ; and to provide you, dear readers, with a content resource to escape to if the port's run out and the home strait of Monopoly is getting a bit heated. 

My resolutions for next year:

  • Focus on video more
  • Do more of my own writing
  • Read more books
  • Meditate more regularly
  • Start mentoring young people
  • Practise gratitude

See you in the next decade!
