Amit Agarwal an Indian Pro Blogger On CNN IBN

March 26, 2007 by  

Armit Argawal is the man behind Digital Inspiration at http://labnol.blogspot.com/, one of the most successful blogs in India. He has been blogging professionally since 2004 and he’s perhaps the first professional blogger in India.

Considering that India’s population is exceeding 1 billion out of which, 26 million are Internet users – about the same as the population of Malaysian population – it would be interesting to get to know this first Indian pro blogger a little closer.

Amit was recently featured on CNN IBN, an English language Indian TV news channel which is a partnership between an India media corporation with CNN.

The video shows how Amit begins his day by commuting to work – which is at the same place where he sleeps.

It’s also interesting to note that his blog is hosted on the free blogger.com account even though he owns the domain labnol.org. Blogger.com works for Amit because he’s the first successful pro blogger in India and naturally it’ll attract attention from many.

If you are just starting out, I would recommend you to get a domain name for your blog.

How much is he making from his blogger.com blog especially from AdSense?

He has never revealed the exact number but I’ve no doubt it’s more than five figures USD monthly.

He has never revealed the exact number but I’ve no doubt it’s more than ten figures USD monthly.

Are you serious?!

10 figures without decimals: $1,000,000,000; ie. billions of dollars.

10 figures with decimals: $10,000,000.00 ie. tens of millions.

I don’t think think even the leetest of probloggers can do that :)

As I’ve thought so as well.

It did give quite a shock! I almost snorted coffee out of my nose reading that last line. :D

Damn don’t you just hate probloggers like Amit Argawal and John Chow haha. This will surely motivate some of the Malaysian bloggers out there. :P

Just imagine the things you can afford in India with a five figures USD monthly income. No offense to any Indian bloggers, I still prefer living in Malaysia though.
