I have small modules in the sidebar on various pages throughout my site. I'm including different quotes for different pages in the sidebar modules. Originally I hard coded them into the template, but I started thinking that I may want them to be editable by whoever will be administering the content on the site. I don't want to use snippets because you can't give someone access to snippets without also giving them access to the templates, and I'd like to not do that.
I was thinking of using a channel entries tag pair to display that content, and just have a "quotes" channel. Is that the best way to do that as far as speed goes? How heavy are those tag pairs if I disable all the unneeded properties?
