This is the time of year when publications indulge in bittersweet reminiscence, and GEN is no exception. Here at GEN, however, we would like to share our sentimental duty with our readers. And so we are asking our readers to tell us which of four story categories they consider most compelling. Over the past year, stories from these four categories consistently scored the most page views. But which category will be deemed the most “click worthy” in this last-minute runoff?
