I've also continued My Year With Spurgeon, which, should probably count for something, right?! Since each week is at least one sermon! Over the course of a year, that adds up!

I've also done monthly quote posts for Martyn Lloyd-Jones. 
I made my cloud of witnesses with Mosaic Maker from Big Huge Labs.
