I want to create a widget of "Best Posts" with specific posts, WITHOUT using a plugin. (already have too many, and bad past experiences have taught me that plugins are not always the way to go)

Anyone know how to get that? It would be a sidebar widget with perhaps 5-10 specific posts (already have a widget for Recent Posts).

Thanks!!

I understand that you want to reduce the plugins, but when your website grows, it can be easier when your best posts are displayed automatically. I have the plugin Top 10 by Ajay D'Souza. It displays also how many times the post is visited. It looks really nice when you see numbers as (33,230) behind a post. It starts counting from the day you add it. My website was about 3 years when I added this plugin, so I could have had a higher amount of visitors on it.
