Currently, Chugg continues to work on more web platforms which he hopes to release in the future even as he continues to work towards completing his college courses. Among some of the accolades that he has won for himself include an award for the best start up in 2011 as well as the silver for Meta Search awards of 2008.
As a blogger, Chugg runs Spruse, a blog that focuses on news as well as technology. The blog mainly focuses on profiling startups, breaking news in technology, latest stories as well as new internet products. The blog, which was set up about a year ago was initially a meta search engine. However, the lack of funds to sustain the search engine led to it being shut down and hence came the birth of the blog. Through the blog, Chugg enjoys a great audience of that is evident in the number of people viewing the content on the website, per month is close to the one million mark and counting. He has also provided an employment opportunity for writers who wish to contribute to the blog.
Another of Chugg’s successful ventures is Shopallo which was an online shopping website which dealt mainly with coupons and deals. The site offered different deals and coupons and thus it was updated on a daily basis. This is evidence in the growth of their products such as Fragallo.com as well as the inclusion of new technology integrated in their previous products.
Even though he prides himself in all these achievements, Chugg strives to strike a balance between his entrepreneurial commitments, academic life and social life. Thus, when he is not working on his startups, you will either find him swimming, taking a stroll at the beach, playing basketball, attending parties, networking and making new friends or playing billiards. He is also a lover of music and by extension, dancing. With over eight thousand followers on Twitter and over five thousand fans on Facebook, Chugg enjoys interacting with friends, fans as well as supporters.
