State of the Indian Blogosphere 2009


Gaurav Mishra lays out a call for a collaborative approach on making a State of the Indian Blogosphere 2009 report. Here’s what he has in mind. I’m excited, and have promised Gaurav my help in any way!

I see an annually updated 15 page PDF report that includes the following sections (later updates may or may not cover different topics) –

1. An overview of the Indian blogosphere (How many blogs? How many blog readers? What are the most discussed topics?)

2. The history of the Indian blogosphere (What are the biggest milestones? What are the biggest controversies?)

3. An overview of the personal and diary blogs in India (Who are the most popular bloggers? What are the most common themes? What are the recent trends?)

4. An overview of current affairs and activism blogs in India (Who are the most popular bloggers? What are the most common themes? What are the recent trends?)

5. An overview of business and technology blogs in India, including CEO blogs (Who are the most popular bloggers? What are the most common themes? What are the recent trends?)

6. An overview of celebrity and gossip blogs in India (Who are the most popular bloggers? What are the most common themes? What are the recent trends?)

7. An overview of Indic language blogging in India (Who are the most popular bloggers? What are the most common themes? What are the recent trends?)

8. A review of the biggest themes and memes in the Indian blogosphere in 2008, including a review of mainstream media news stories about blogging in India.

9. A directory of the most influential bridge bloggers in India, which can use Amit Agarwal’s directory of Indian bloggers as a starting point.

It’s obvious that such a report can hardly be put together by a single person, and I suggest that DesiPundit and Global Voices take the lead in putting it together, with contributions from leading Indian bloggers.

  1. Allan, where exactly did I say that?

  2. Gautam says, “…with contributions from leading Indian bloggers.”

    May I add, “…with links and corresponding descriptions from and only of leading Indian bloggers.”

    That’s what it’s all about, isn’t it?

    Gosh! Ridiculous to the core.
