You know, I started off on July 31st, 2017 as a blogger exclusively about Sansar. I never planned to blog about other virtual worlds at all, and I certainly never planned to become an SL blogger. There are already thousands of bloggers doing that, and doing it well, like Strawberry Singh and Inara Pey.

Then, after an incident in January 2018 where I was asked by Linden Lab to take down some pictures I had taken (with permission, mind you!) of one of their Ready Player One experiences after Warner Brothers objected to LL about my use of the apparently forbidden word "exclusive", I got pissed off and I decided to rebrand and expand my blog to cover all the newer social VR platforms including High FIdelity, Sinespace, VRChat, and AltspaceVR. (Sound like a familiar move? I guess I was a trendsetter...)

You can follow the drama as it unfolded here:
Pick of the Day: Aech’s Garage, the Ready Player One Movie Experience in Sansar (The blogpost that started this whole mess, where I was asked to take down the pictures by LL's legal. I eventually was allowed to repost the pictures, and I got a personal apology from Ebbe Altberg, which meant a lot to me.)

In February 2018, I also started covering the ever-expanding and truly hyperbole-filled world of blockchain/cryptocurrency-based virtual worlds like Decentraland:

But what I find most amusing by far is that now, by far, the most traffic to my blog is generated by my many posts about the steals, deals, and freebies in Second Life!
Second Life Steals, Deals and Freebies – Ryan Schultz

I'm actually in the first page of search results when you Google "second life freebies".
It just goes to show you that you never can predict what will happen...

Although I'm only in SL, I recently started reading your blog because of it casts a wider net. Having said that, I do often refer people to that SL freebies post :LOL:

I just want to say, I like what you are doing because it's kind of the direction I wanted to go with VW blogging but never really had the follow through.

So keep up the good work.
