He was a prominent blogger for a number of years, but he "retired" from daily blogging in December, 2011. He titled the post, "Mission Accomplished", and noted that he had brought a great deal of clarity and vision, and helped shape the domain industry, and it was time to move on to dedicate himself to a greater sphere of activities.<ref>[http://www.ricksblog.com/my_weblog/2011/12/mission-accomplished.html Mission Accomplished, RicksBlog.com]</ref>
==Background==
Mr. Schwartz dragged his feet through highschool and a few months of community college before discovering his passion for sales; as he began to truly excel in the sale sector he decided it was time to sell his own products rather than make someone else rich. He bean selling products produced in Asia at trade shows and in trade magazines. He immediately recognized the benefit of the Internet to a salesman, and claims the day that he learned about the [[FTP|File Transfer Protocol]] was the day that changed his life. He began putting his brochures and sales materials online, and around this time he discovered the monetary potential of domain names.<ref>[http://www.dnjournal.com/columns/cover020204.htm DNJournal]</ref>
