Remember when we thought 2020 would be the worst of it? And now we’re approaching year three of “the end of days?” If you’re like us, you’ve mentally blocked it. No, we were too busy with our heads buried in our books, noise-canceling headphones superglued to our ears, and Netflix asking “are you still watching?”
Whereas last year’s trend was lofty plans that didn’t quite pan out, this year we dedicated our time to things we really wanted and needed.
For some, that meant an escape from our reality. For others, it meant self-reflection or intellectual expansion. And some of us just needed a break from looking at words all day!
Whatever you’re looking to make of 2022, our recommendations will hopefully help you achieve it.Continue reading
If you’re like us, maybe you dealt with the never-ending spiral of badness that was 2020 by consuming a ridiculous amount of content … or maybe you just doomscrolled Twitter and binged Netflix.
We’re not judging!
As you’ll see, a lot of us didn’t get to do all the reading/listening/watching we thought we would. (Perhaps you find yourself in this vast expanse of people who had lofty plans in early pandemic days that didn’t quite work out how you thought by year-end.)

It’s the end of the decade. Can you believe it?
The last 10 years have been so full of books, movies, television shows, podcasts, and other widely creative content that it’s a wonder we all haven’t gone comatose from sleep deprivation (though we most certainly are sleep-deprived).
While everyone seems to be doing their “top 10 of the decade” lists, we’ve stuck to just 2019 to save you a few dozen scrolls of the page.
Without further ado, here’s Craft Your Content’s fourth annual roundup of our favorite content from the past year.
As a collective of freelancers who literally live and breathe content, we always have recommendations to give. While we always have our year-end roundup of books, this year, with the relaunch of Writers’ Rough Drafts, we decided to add podcasts to the mix.
As is CYC roundup tradition, we’ve each chosen our top two pieces of content that we consumed this year and written a bit about it. Of course, we have those honorable mentions that we all slip in at the end.
So, if you’re looking to expand your mind or expand your content intake in 2019, definitely take a look at some of the stuff we’ve pre-screened.Continue reading
