Today I’m celebrating the end of the second year of daily blog posts, and I want to thank all the people who have given me their support.  I’m a glutton for punishment, so I’m set to do another year of this. Actually, I’ve enjoyed doing it a lot.

Last night also marked the end of the magic contest, and sometime within the week, I’ll announce the winners. Thanks to everyone who participated.

I thought I’d do a quick round-up here of my twenty favorite blog posts from the past year that featured my own original content. You may enjoy re-visiting or catching up with some of these:
