Kerala, The God’s own Country has around hundreds of professional bloggers. There are bloggers who blog about Technology, Travel, Gadget & Softwares, Food, Business, Information Technology etc.
The growth of Internet has made a large number of professional bloggers and website owners in Kerala who make their primary living income with it.
Apart from all money making bloggers, there are thousands of hobby bloggers who maintain blogs in Malayalam. Those bloggers also concentrate on various categories. Most of them are literature bloggers and concentrate much on their private journalism interests.
It was very difficult to make a list of pro bloggers in Kerala. Because there was no proper network connected between all of them. So, we a couple of bloggers decided to make a ‘Kerala Bloggers’ WhatsApp group and we have got almost 50+ serious bloggers connected together now.
Most of the money making bloggers from Kerala are focussed on the revenue from Google Adsense and there are a few who makes money with affiliate networks too.
Most of the top successful bloggers are the one who started their blogging life before 2010. That also describe as blogging is not a one-day process to get success. It needs so much of Hard work and patience. The amount of success rate for bloggers depends on dedication, passion and commitments towards the work you are concentrating on.
