As we at Going Down Swinging look forward to a new dawn, we like to reflect on some of the big hitters of the year. While clicks are only one metric, and there are many others in terms of quality and significance of a piece, it is the only one our analytics offers.

So, without further ado… 2020’s most clicked is…
