I've been working on my blog for seven months or so now, and I've got the look just the way I want it. I use Wordpress 2.1 and a modification of the Sirius theme. It's not sidebar widget enabled.

What I want to do now, is integrate a list in the sidebar of my favorite posts, so they're available to users without digging through archives.

There's a plug in called Popularity Contest that analyzes the amount of hits you've gotten, i believe, and creates a list in your sidebar which is cool... but I would just like to create a list of my own and be able to modify and add to it at will. Can someone give me a clue as to how to start this?

Thank you in advance for any help.
