Directory of Best Indian Blogs 2012-2013 is here!

We are happy to release the 2012-13 edition of the Directory of Best Indian Blogs.

The Directory contains 541 Indian blogs [blogs by Indians and blogs on India] in English, arranged alphabetically. The category-wise version of the Directory will be issued after some time. 
Over years, we've found that the operative part of the blog's URL is the best way to alphabetise and so you can find a blog with URL 'www.indianewyindex.com/hardeep.html' and title 'Wedding Photos by H.  Mithi of Bhagalpur' listed as 'hardeep'. We also give the title next to the URL. We take the title visible on top of the blog or that in the title tag, and we retain its capitalisation and punctuation except that we convert ALL CAPS to Title Case.

Finding a blog of an earlier edition in in the 2012-13 edition of the Directory is not because the blog already had a standing in our eyes; if it has come in the directory this year, it has gone through the selection process afresh. You will find it interesting that out of 562 blogs in 2011-12 Directory, 334 have entered the Directory again while 218 have gone out! 

At this link, you can visit all the posts relating to compilation of the blog directory this year and our observations during this process.  

Surfers who are new to Indian Top Blogs might have some questions in mind relating to our policies relating to directory compilation etc. Posts in the above-mentioned link explain that. In addition, we'll soon publish an FAQ post to answer queries relating to ITB.

We are trying to inform bloggers whose blogs are there in the Directory by email (and not locating the email, by commenting on the latest post). Like before, we have created a small badge. For putting the badge in your blog, you need to copy the html code given in blue text below and paste it somewhere in a post (to be opened for editing in html view) or in an html widget.
