Hindi blogging: web magazines, collective blogs, aggregators in 2020 | हिंदी ब्लॉगों के समूहक, ब्लॉगिंग प्लेटफार्म और वेब-पत्रिकाऐं

Updated: August 2020

The Indian blogging scene is seeing a more marked change as compared to its English counterpart. To a great extent, this is due to these characteristics of Hindi blogging:

1. English blogging had much more time to grow and mature before it was marginalized by social networking platforms such as Facebook and Twitter. Starting in 1994, English blogging reached its pinnacle sometime in 2005-8 and then its pre-eminence went down. Hindi blogging started much later but Hindi users adopted social networking almost simultaneously with English users.

2. English users have adopted professional blogging on a large scale. Hindi bloggers have remained personal bloggers. Those who wanted to express better or had problems with English or wanted to earn money through their creations on the web either switched to blogging in English or started posting on YouTube (and other video platforms) rather than sticking to mainstream blogging.

3. In its peak, around 2010-15, Hindi blogging was marked by a number of blog communities, aggregators, web-magazines and other forms of collective/ curated blogging. Once the importance of blogs as the medium of communication declined, the relevance of many such efforts, especially communities, also went down. That has eroded the value of blogging as shared self-expression and creativity.

4. Some good newspapers had started blogs on their platforms, giving blogging a high pedestal in the online publishing sphere. These would mostly be the reproduction of their columns, but some of them allowed others to open blogs. That too is no longer prevalent, except for a few.

The present post gives list of the few remaining collectives on the Hindi blogging scene and also prominent web magazines. 

In the case of aggregators, since they are feed-based compilations, no work is involved. Most of them are on the free blogging platform, Blogger, so there is no expenditure involved. Needless to say, all do not maintain even good design. 

Among blogs on other blogs and newspaper blogging platforms, we could find only one each worth mentioning. 

Instead of removing the entries altogether, we have retained last year's entries but have used strikethrough, to show that these entries have gone dead in the last one year.

If you know of any other good entries that we have missed, please send them to us at kp.nd.2008@gmail.com.

हिंदी ब्लॉगोस्फीयर (याने ब्लॉग संसार) में कई बदलाव इन वर्षों में देखे गए हैं, जो कि अंग्रेज़ी ब्लॉगोस्फीयर की तुलना में अधिक बड़े हैं. इसके कई कारण हैं, उनमें से एक है हिंदी ब्लॉगों के समूहक, हिंदी ब्लॉगिंग प्लेटफार्म और हिंदी की वेब-पत्रिकाओं का क्षीण हो जाना.

इस पोस्ट में हमने हिंदी के प्रतिष्ठित समूहक, ब्लॉगिंग प्लेटफार्म इत्यादि के लिंक दिए हैं. (हालांकि समूहकों को गुणवत्ता के आधार पर नहीं आंका गया है क्योंकि वस्तुतः ये फ़ीड के माध्यम से स्वतः पोषित होते हैं.) 

जो नाम कटे हुए दिख रहे हैं वो पिछले एक वर्ष में प्रचलन से बाहर हो गए हैं. 


अगर कोई उत्तम स्तर के वेब मैगज़ीन, ब्लॉगों पर चर्चा करते ब्लॉग या समूहक इस बीच बन गए हों और हमसे छूट गए हों तो इस ईमेल पर सूचित करने का कष्ट करें: kp.nd.2008@gmail.com.
