Hello! My name is Ryan Schultz, and I write a blog about social VR, virtual worlds, and the metaverse called RyanSchultz.com. Ever since I first ventured into Second Life over a decade ago, I have been a passionate virtual worlds enthusiast: obscure, older failed ones like Cloud Party, Twinity, and Blue Mars; shiny new ones like Sansar, High Fidelity and Sinespace; and perennial favourites like Second Life and its many Opensim-based spin-offs. Recently, I’ve also been checking out the new social VR worlds like AltspaceVR and VRChat, as well as the brand-new blockchain-based virtual worlds like Decentraland and Virtual Universe.

My plan is to earn a side-income from my blog containing “news and views on social VR, virtual worlds, and the metaverse” (which is the tagline of my blog) when I finally do decide (hopefully, at some age before 65) to take my retirement. I already have a small but devoted following, and I want to grow that audience. Several people have told me that I have the best blog out there covering the world of social virtual reality:

"I’d just remind you that your blog is, as far as I’ve seen, the number one blog on social VR out there. You have something valuable here, even if it’s not always that clear to you. You have many readers and we all look up to you and look forward to your pieces. You’ve done a great job of sharing much-needed information about all these different worlds and the people in them. I don’t think it’s a stretch to say you are one of the leading experts on social VR."  —Jason Moore, High Fidelity user (comment posted to my blog)

Also, I am currently at work with my producer, Andrew William, on a regularly scheduled pre-taped show about social VR, virtual worlds, and the metaverse, called Metaverse Newscast, which you can see on YouTube. We're all really excited; join us here on Patreon and I will share updates!
