About WebUrbanist | World’s Most Popular Urban Weblog
Welcome to WebUrbanist:
Over one million readers per month follow WebUrbanist as it covers educational, inspirational and sensational works of creative visual culture from around the world. From product design to urban planning, urban street graffiti to installation art pieces, our authors work to find the most innovative, compelling and cutting-edge artists and designers in the world. But if you were expecting a deluge of daily content, do not worry: our focus is on quality over quantity, depth over frequency. Publishing at most two articles a day, WebUrbanist packs each piece with as many relevant paragraphs, images and links as possible.
WebUrbanist has multiple articles per week, but only one to two per day. Our noon article (12:00 PM) tackles a topic in depth – the emphasis here is on quality, well-researched and fully sourced articles on whatever the subject is. Our periodic evening article (8:00 PM) generally zooms in on a more narrow subject – often a single artist, designer or piece of creative work. As you can already see, this is not a high-frequency, content-republishing blog – it is a thoughtfully collective online urban magazine. We hope you will enjoy the latest from WebUrbanist each and every time you open your inbox, click into your feed reader or visit the site.
WebUrbanist has nearly 1,000,000 unique visitors each month. Our articles have featured on the front pages of social news sites including Metafilter, Digg, Reddit, Fark, StumbleUpon and Pinterest.
