Best Indian Bloggers and Popular Blogs that You Must Follow in 2021

Blogging has been on the rise recently in India and we have seen plenty of bloggers rising up to the mark of excellence. But not many could reach that height, as some Indian bloggers did.

In this article, I have listed the best names in the market and also why they deserve to be on the list. This list of the best Indian bloggers is supposed to be a baseline for anyone who is willing to have a career in blogging (and digital marketing).

As of now, I am targeting the 30 best Indian bloggers and their top blogs but with time I will be adding more names to the list.

With the advancement of technology, there are several unique job opportunities in the modern digital age that no one could have thought of previously. It is a wonderful profession that allows one to earn by writing about their passions and interests. The days when blogging was merely considered a hobby are long gone. Today, there are a number of people in India who are earning a living by becoming full-time bloggers. If you have the determination, innovation, and right knowledge of business, you can actually make millions by blogging.

Yet Another List of Top Indian Bloggers?

Yes, and no. Every other list(s) of best or top or whatever Indian bloggers you see — is(are) actually the list of their top blogs.

Blogs are important, but it is even more important what these bloggers are doing out of their writers’ block. Newcomers get inspired mostly by how their inspirations are doing. What are their earnings and how much traffic are they getting?

Anyone can start a blog now when there are plenty of tools and all are available. People like Harsh, Amit, Anil and (shamelessly) I — are in the list because we started when it was all deserts and jungles.

Everyone has their own story and my purpose is not to dive into that (for now at least).

All I wanted was to create a list of people that really deserved to be on this list.

In response to a tweet made by Shri Arvind Passey, I’d like to say that it is true that there are several bloggers on the list who can barely write a proper sentence. Still, they are doing better than 99.99% others. They are the cherries on top, and whether you love them or hate them — you can’t simply ignore them.

Now coming to the readers. If you wish to start as a blogger or are looking for some inspiration from the top bloggers around you, then this list of the best Indian bloggers is for you.

Feel free to be inspired by the blogging genius of these people. I have done my best to ensure transparency. Plus, this list is entirely open to all. If you know a blogger who is worth being listed here, please drop an email to gaurav@gauravtiwari.org. I respond to each and every email.

The Best Indian Bloggers to Look Upon in 2021

How did I make this list?

First of all, it is all about bloggers and not blogs. Blogs teach you but cannot motivate you enough. This is a list of bloggers made for bloggers by just another blogger.

I have focused on the personal achievements of the top Indian bloggers. I have also given weightage to some stats like their complete reach, website traffic, domain authority, domain rating, social media influence, and the quality of content they deliver.

Only bloggers who passed the following conditions made it to the list:

  • They are professionals. They are serious professionals. But on the one hand they make money from their works while on the other they help others grow with honest opinions.
  • They don’t overpromote products. They follow the famous 90-10 rule. The top Indian bloggers on the list provide more than 90 percent valuable content that informs their readers, and then 10 percent of their content promotes some products or services. So, for every nine blogs they write providing value, they can write one blog post plugging their products or some businesses.
  • They take responsibility for their own words. 
  • They use good grammar. Using proper punctuation and good grammar makes a big difference in how your customers perceive you. Does your blog look professional? Misspelled words and missing punctuation will lead others to believe you don’t care enough about your image and work to put your best foot forward. All bloggers on the list focus heavily on the quality of their content.
  • They respond to comments on their blogs. When someone speaks to you in real life, you respond, right? They do this.
  • They give credit where credit is due. It’s the height of rudeness and bad manners to plagiarize someone’s words or steal their graphics without permission. If you see something you want to borrow, ask the original creator for permission to use their stuff and make sure you include a source link. Do unto others as you’d have them do unto you, right? Our choice of the best bloggers in India believes in giving credit where that is due.

Enough chit chat. Let’s get to the main material.

Here are the best Indian bloggers:

  1. Awsome bro..how you collect these data. hatsoff to you.besides these some hindi bloggers also made their foot print in blogging.. mention them also

  2. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting myown weblog and was curious what all is required to get set up?I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100 sure. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.Thank you

  3. Captain Ajit Vadakayil is the No1 blogger on this planet with the highest profile view count (1 billion +)

    • That is true. But he doesn’t fill the criteria that I mentioned above. Here are the reasons why he is not in the list:

      1. blogspot.com domain (meaning it is upto Blogspot to decide on his blog’s future).
      2. Using CAPS in their content.
      3. No monetization (that means no one can get inspired)
      And more. If such criteria was to be included, all news publishers and celebs would have been in the list. Plus this is not the list of most popular blogs in India.

  4. Hello I’m Aadil. Your all indian digital marketing blogger is best for each other. So your website blogging is gave best information for us. Thank you for sharing bloggers.
