Did you use GA to come up with your top posts for this year? How did you do that? I can see my top content, and I can break down the most popular posts over the last year. But how can I filter it down to the most popular posts this year, that were actually published this year?

@Lisa: All of our blog posts are organized in subdirectories by year and date, so we can just filter the page name by 2009 to see all posts for 2009. I don't think there's any way to get Google Analytics to do that without having a similar naming convention.
