Ahh, it's easy to be led astray, to thinking we're just a photo-sharing site. I mean, those galleries on the home page, with all those gorgeous cookies, are hard not to notice, right?!  But, we've got interesting blog posts (including the latest, incredibly researched Toolbox Talk by @Liesbet); written tutorials (like this appropriately Halloween-y one by @Laegwen); and even videos, ranging from in-depth tutorials to delightfully entertaining cookie-snippets!

So, as a reminder of all of the riches on this site, it's time again to spotlight some non-photo content by sharing the week's top-trending videos. Thanks to all those recognized in our hot list* below for taking the extra time (and other resources) to share their methods through this wonderfully visual medium.

Now, go grab your popcorn, and enjoy this mini film fest! (Note: Depending on how videos were uploaded to the site, I was sometimes able to embed the video directly below; in other cases, all I could do was link off to where the video was originally uploaded on the site.)

* As a reminder, a word about how the rankings are determined: The rankings are not at all subjective. In fact, they are determined essentially by you, our members, and the activity (number of views, likes, and comments) you've bestowed on each photo or video. The site uses a top-secret algorithm that weighs these various factors to determine which photos and videos are trending most quickly (i.e., are the "hottest") over specified periods of time. As such, the hot list at the time of this announcement may look a little different a few hours or a day from now as more content is added to the site.

So that no one has an unfair advantage in making it onto a hot list, the algorithm is secret even to site administrators. Only our platform developers know the code, which has been exhaustively tested by those developers and chief Cookie Connection staff.

All videos shown here are the courtesy (and copyright) of the designers listed.

To check out our other hot lists, at any time of day, visit our Hot Spot, also found in the site's main navigation line.
