Blog Round-up

The BBC does a roundup of Cricket themed blogs in the Blogosphere. Looks like they missed out Prem Panicker. The BBC has a disclaimer saying that it is not responsible for the content in the external sites. This disclaimer might answer Anand’s question.

Fellow Blogger Samanth’s article is published in Centre Daily Times. Samanth says that blogs have taken off in a big way in India and China. He cites SEA-Tsunami Blog and Cloudburst Mumbai as excellent collaborative efforts by the Blogosphere. Samanth goes on to say that some Asian bloggers are making money through ad revenues and corporate blogging. I would like to know whether he is referring to any Indian bloggers.

ToI had an article on the Kolkata Blogosphere. Alfred Prufrock and Nandita Das have been mentioned.

India Daily quotes some Blogsites and reports some gossip about Shamita Shetty. The term “According to some blogsites” is as vague as it can get. Can’t they quote the blog / blogger? They can even write some rumours and get away with it by using terms like “According to some blogsites”.

The Sunday Express has a story on the male gazers in the Blogosphere. Kitabkhana and Bridalbeer are some of the blogs mentioned in the article. Looking at the weird comments in Bipasha Basu’s Clog you tend to feel that there are lots of male gazers out there. I feel Rediff should have moderated some of the comments there.

In an article titled the “Shadowy World of the Internet”, ToI brought us some memories of Jivha’s blog.

Happy Blog Day to everyone. I have a long list of favourites and hence I refrain from posting any blog recommendations here. Anyway most of them are listed on the right side.

I guess most of you would have heard of DesiPundit. We scan the length and breadth of the Indian Blogosphere and present some of the best posts to you. Please spread the word so that DesiPundit reaches a wider audience.

Simonworld has a comprehensive post on the A to Z of Blogging. One thing that I learnt from the post was that you don’t need to have Wordpress / Movable Type to send Trackback pings to other Blogs. There is something called a Manual Trackback pinger.

I’m six months young in the Blogosphere. This blog was born on 1st March. It has been a long and interesting journey. Thanks for your continued support to SambharMafia.

Public Service Announcement

Sumit Dhar had posted about some cruel treatment meted out to Lt. Saurabh Kalia during the Kargil War. As bloggers we can do our bit by voicing our discontent against such dastardly acts. If you feel strongly about this incident do sign the petition.

  • Kaps, actually there is mention to Prem Panicker's blog in this passage from the BBC article:

    "And with cricket blogs it's the usual mix: there are lots of links to choice articles, mixed in with bloggers' own match reports and analysis."

    One of his pieces is linked to the word "links" :)

    Nice round-up!
