Shameless plug

[The Indibloggies 2003]I started it in June 2002, when I couldn’t find too many Indian bloggers online.

It has grown and grown over the space of one and a half years. And led others to create more sophisticated lists and search engines based on it.

I’ve spent countless hours updating, finding new blogs, replying to bloggers, apologising for delays. And though it’s taken quite a lot of time, it’s also been quite a satisfying experience. I’m hoping to do something more (jazzy/flashy/hi-tech?!) with the list once I get back to Mumbai this time (plans, plans!). So look out for the new look πŸ˜‰

But, meanwhile, the list has been nominated for the Best IndiBlogs directory and if you vote for it, I might just be inspired to work a little harder on it. And give you a small bribe (uh, you didn’t catch that on tape, did you?). So go there, what are you waiting for?!


  1. Anita, you provide a great service to Indian bloggers and I certainly voted for you! You are the only list I found from Canada.

  2. You deserve a nomination and a vote Anita πŸ™‚ BTW Nilesh & group already had some hi-tech initiative in mind with their Hum*Blog effort, do see his blog. I think Ram and Kamat’s Blog portal too deserve fair share of appreciation.

    So what’s the assignment after Rediff?

  3. Jil: Thanks sweetie. Hehe. Let’s discuss the bribe under the table, not on the blog πŸ˜‰

    Debashish: Thanks Deb. Trying out the world of the ‘independent worker’ for a while! Let’s see how it goes πŸ™‚

  4. Anita, your efforts are probably one of the main reasons for Indian bloggers getting together. I remember, although I started blogging in early 2001, I tried and gave up my attempts of finding Indian bloggers other than probably Anil Dash and Jishnu. It was in 2002 that I chanced upon your list and found a whole world of Hum*bloggers (we should start using that term, it sounds nice) already on the net. Thanks!

  5. Another thank you for what you have been doing, and another shameless plug:

    come check us out at Living in India (formerly India Economy Watch) – you may meet some old friends.

  6. Thanks Nilesh. Btw, are you updating Hum*blog these days?

    Edward: I’ll definitely check it out πŸ™‚

  7. Anita,

    Really commendable effort.I have been an avid blogger for over a year- started in Aug 2002.

    I tried mailing you the details for my blog but the mail bounced (mailbox full).

    Anyways here are the required details according to your format:

    Name/Alias: Sayan Chakraborty


    Description: From the today’s mundane to the future’s bizzare. Tech news, science news, quirks of languages and more.

    Location: Bangalore, India

    Looking forward to your reply.

    Best regards,


  8. Sayan: Guess it’s time to clean my mailbox. Will add yours when I update next. Hopefully, sometime this week.
