Best blogs in India [list of top Indian blogs in English in 2021]

This is the latest (11th) edition of the Directory of Best Indian Blogs, published every year since 2011. Released on June 15, 2021, the blog list has 243 Indian blogs (in English) maintained by top Indian bloggers. These blogs excel in content quality, regularity and overall blog resources, and meet a minimum design standard. They also show the blogger's commitment to blogging.

We might have missed some blogs that are equal to or better than the 'top Indian blogs' listed in the blog directory. One reason could be, we did not come across them despite looking for such blogs all the time. 

We get hundreds of submissions from Indian bloggers for including their blogs in the top blogs list but we can include only a handful in the directory, because

  • many of them are from new bloggers whose blogs are not worth being called the best blogs in India 
  • some bloggers maintain the blog in spurts: active for some time and then being irregular
  • some blogs are too commercialized with display ads, pop-ups, pop-unders and in other ways, leading to a very poor user experience

In this blog directory, we do not include blogs by business entities. Therefore, some blogs that you find in top blogs lists in some other websites are not included in the present list. However, we include blogs that are run as an earnings enterprise if the spirit of blogging and the contribution of individual blogger(s) dominate the blog.

Similarly, the directory contains the best blogs of India on blogging parameters, not their earnings from the blog. In fact, many of the blogs listed in the listing are not even monetized. Many listed blogs are free blogspot or wordpress blogs. So, this blog directory is way different from blog lists available on the web in which earning is the criterion for calling a blog or blogger 'successful blog' or 'top blog'.

Blogs have been arranged alphabetically. The identifying part of a blog's URL has been taken for indexing purpose. Capitalization of URL or title has been retained from the original blog except for ALL CAPS.

Inclusion of a blog in this Directory is no certificate from Top Blogs. The Directory of Best Indian Blogs is just a listing of blogs on India and/or by Indians, which we found to be the best blogs, based on quality, regularity, commitment to blogging, and an above-average design - at the time of compilation of the Directory. The subject or its treatment by the blogger has no bearing on the selection.
