        I’m still working to finish the full two-year run, which will have 104 weekly Challenges in total. Tomorrow’s post will mark #97. The easiest way to find the past articles is through the page links at the top of my blog; for example, the full, linked list of the first 52 is located at https://luminathan.wordpress.com/one-year-of-challenges/
