100 Top Bloggers of India Who are Making Passive Income Online

Many people still do not consider blogging as a real job. But, being a professional full time blogger, I know the reality.

People don’t believe me when I tell them that there are many successful bloggers who run their blog as a business and whose income surpasses the annual income of many executive level employees.

If you think blogging is time wastage then I am sharing the list of top 100 bloggers in India from various industries. If you want to start your blog then you can read my article to find online business ideas.

In the initial days when I was still figuring out my content strategy, apart from my mentor, these bloggers inspired me to not give up. Many of them are wildly successful and are making tens of thousands of dollars every month.

Note: We are not giving any ranking to bloggers. I have carefully researched and curated a list of top bloggers, in no particular order, under each category – Travel, Food, Fashion, Parenting, Technology, Finance, and Digital Marketing.

Everyone is doing fantastic job in their respective area. I respect the blogger mentioned at #10 in the same way who is mentioned at #1.

Some of the key criteria I have used to curate the list includes

  • Individual bloggers (not companies/platforms or a team of bloggers)
  • Monthly Average Blog Traffic
  • Monthly Income from their blog
  • Content Quality
  • Popularity in their industry (and the love they receive from their audience)

When I reached out to them for this article, many of them were kind enough and responded by sharing their average monthly income details and the channels through which they are monetizing their blog.

I am awaiting for inputs from rest of the bloggers as well and I will update as soon as I hear back from them.

Disclaimer: The bloggers featured in this article are a result of the criteria used above and may not be 100% accurate. Despite, my best efforts I might have missed out on some bloggers under each category. If you would like to get featured in this list or know of any blogger that should be in this list, please respond in the comment section.

Conclusion

While there are clearly numerous blogs being started on a daily basis, many people who start a blog often fail because they do not understand what kind of content their readers want.

You can take help from thetop digital marketing bloggersthat I have listed in the article.

Secondly, blogging requires hustling on a consistent basis. When I say hustling I mean providing quality content on a regular basis to your readers.

Like any business out there in the World, learn to run your blog like a business. Work hard today, be persistent, and reap the benefits tomorrow.

The other day, I was reading about Elon Musk, the super successful entrepreneur who is building rockets, electric cars, and solar energy all at once and vowing the world. But, what many people don’t know is that he started doing these things, way back, from the years 2002/03. That’s a good 15 years to be at the position that he is in today.

But, don’t worry, blogging is not that complicated. 1 year of consistent effort, you can start making $1000 a month and slowly with time can even make $10,000 a month.

I hope you take action and start your blog. Furthermore, I want to see you in this top bloggers list one day in the future.

Let me know in the comments if you have any questions and what you thought of this article.
