Guess What Our Hottest Posts of 2008 Were?

People have asked me in the past how we select our posts to place in the Hot Zone. For those uninitiated, the Hot Zone is located on the right sidebar and contains a list of recent hot posts on NextGen Player.

Well, the answer is simple. It's analytics my dear Watson.

Tonight I had a little peak at our analytics to find out which of our posts were the hottest during the 2008 calendar year. To my surprise Just like I thought, the hottest posts were flamebait, frugality, and plastic guns.
