Popwuping was a weblog devoted to delivering trends and insights in mobile culture. 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 activity.
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. Acording to Alexa internet Popwuping enjoyed a global website ranking in the top 50,000. Traffic like that is small potatoes in the grand scheme of things but it was enough to help provide for a healthy side income for over 5 years.
