Top Ten Posts EVER on JimOnLight!

I love looking through statistics and analyses of JOL — from where people read around the world to which kinds of stories that people around the globe like to read on the site.  One of my favorite things is seeing which posts are the most visited and why.  It might seem silly to most, but when you look at the world as a metric, it’s actually pretty neat!

People across the time that JimOnLight.com has been publishing articles have ranked these ten posts as the most visited ten posts in the history of JimOnLight.com as of the date of publishing this post, counting down from #10:

10:   The Phenomenon of Earthquake Lights

(AWWW!  I miss my Dewey D ‘Oh Dat’s mah Dew’ and my Stink R. Butt!)

I used to do these pretty frequently, but I’ve become so engrossed in the research aspect of writing that I completely put these off!  I LOVE to see what the world likes and dislikes that I write, it’s a real great incentive into the feel of learning about light on the web!
