1,100 Blogposts! Some Statistics

The RyanSchultz.com blog has hit another milestone: 1,100 blogposts! (Well, really, it’s 1,102 blogposts. The results of my most recent reader poll was actually my 1,100th blogpost.)

Since I started this blog on July 31st, 2017 (the date that Sansar officially opened its doors to the public), I have made 1,102 blogposts. That works out to nearly two blogposts per day! Wow!

All of these blogpost have racked up over 1,000 views each. Of these Top 20 blogposts, 8 were about Second Life (a popular topic on my blog since I started blogging about steals, deals, and freebies in SL). Two were about Sansar, and another two were about VRChat. Two were polls, and another three were lists or charts of various social VR platforms/virtual world products.

Interestingly, my few blogposts about adult/sexual virtual worlds have seen a recent bump in traffic (mainly from search engines), in particular the ones for Oasis and Utherverse/Red Light Center. Apparently, lots of people are searching for sex in virtual worlds! Who knew?!?? 😉
