An early trend watcher and cool hunter, Popwuping was part of a weblog network devoted to delivering trends and insights in mobile culture, travel, and carry-ology. Following the themes of art, design, technology, and place, tracking the latest news, I tried to make sense of an increasingly mobile society and share what inspired me. Though I had been ‘blogging’ since before Peter Merholz coined the term, Popwuping represented my first attempt at turning this outlet into a self-sustaining business.
Popwuping was actively published from 2005 – 2012, the daily number of site visitors consistently reached more than 45,000, with pageviews of over 80,000. According to Alexa internet Popwuping enjoyed a global website ranking in the top 50,000.
