Blogging in India is not the same like old time. Young bloggers are now taking Blogging seriously and they are opting it as a profession. You will be surprise to know that there are many young and successful Bloggers from India, who are earning in lacks/month from their blog.
Most of their income source is Google Adsense and other blog monetizatio method, that we will discus later in other post. I thought, it will be good idea to create a list of professional Blogs and bloggers from India. This is not something like best blogger list, but a list of those Indian bloggers that I have been closely following.

This list is a result of long research. I take most of the factors in my mind including twitter profile, alexa rank, pagerank of a blog and total web experience. I give place to those bloggers who are a full time professional bloggers but there are exception in the form of Keith Dsouza, Raju, NirmalTV and Aseem Kishore who are a working professionals but removing them out of the list might not fair with the list. I keep away many web entrepreneurs away from this list because this list is dedicated to bloggers only who write continuous for their blogs from long time. Also don’t treat this list as a perfect list. It may possible that I haven’t include some names who deserves this list . Kindly leave a comment if you think your name deserves to enter in this power list. I will soon review your blog and make it enter in the list.
