In the Indian context, Harsh Agarwal is the pioneer of modern day blogging and ShoutMeLoud is your answer to absolutely anything that has to do with blogging. As Harsh himself says on his about page, an unassuming guy who is an engineer from Delhi starts his blog in 2008 and today has a following of close to a million people.
A million followers can’t be wrong? can they? ShoutMeLoud for me has become a pillar of information and knowledge. A forum for everyone who wants to embrace an internet lifestyle. Despite his busy schedule, Harsh is always available for anyone who wants a word of advice. He has been kind enough to personally advise me on my affiliate queries too on his amazing ShoutMeLoud Forum.
If you are on Facebook and if you are from India, it is hard to miss Pradeep. He is one of the nicest guys I have known for years now. Ever approachable, simple and always ready to share information with us fellow bloggers. I have personally pestered him on more than one occasion with my mundane doubts and queries and he has always patiently responded to me with his genuine suggestions. For me or anyone Hellbound Bloggers, is a place of learning, with humongous information about aspects such as SEO, E-commerce, web hosting. This platform is a must for every blogger who is either starting out and wants to stay updated.
As Pradeep himself states, the blog was started in 2009 when he was just 17 years old. Now Hellbound Bloggers is one of the entities he runs under his Slashsquare Media Pvt Ltd. He has spread his influence across many niches over the years and is a force to reckon with when it comes to blogging in India.
You are missing out on the art of money making if you aren’t following Kulwant’s Bloggingcage. In my personal opinion, his blog is a treasure trove of information, tips and tricks on how to make money blogging. He has some amazing posts on how to leverage affiliate marketing to move to the next level.
Kulwant started Bloggingcage way back in 2012, and he has been progressing ever since then. Take a look at his About page for how he happened to start this amazing blog. Kulwant has an inimitable style which makes his different from others. He is extremely social and can be reached at his Facebook account most often. He runs one of the best Indian blogs to follow in current times.
Okay! I call Amit Agarwal the ” Father of Indian Blogging“. He went mainstream in 2004 and became the first professional blogger of India, by virtue of which he pioneered the blogging trend in India. Although his blog is primarily technical one, I consider his Digital inspiration to be a one-stop answer to some of the important questions which arise in a tech bloggers mind.
He has been very influential is spreading the culture of blogging through his India Blog School and also is the curator of the popular Indian blogs directory India Blogs. He is an inspiration to every budding blogger in India.

He is a flamboyant presence in the Indian blogging scene which he entered in 2012. His expertise and footprint spread across many facets of the digital marketing industry. From speaking at events to nurturing social media strategies for start-ups, Jitu as he fondly addressed has created a mark for himself.
