Another first for the blogosphere is set to be launched October 5 with the launch (of what I believe to be) the first blog network based in India: Instablogs.

According to an email received from Nandini Maheshwari from Instabogs, the new network will launch with “close to 50 channels” and the blogs will be staffed by full-time bloggers. No word yet as to whether the content will be targeted at the US market or the local market in India, which is potentially the next big marketplace in the blogosphere.

    The fact that Nandini is based in India, I can’t helping thinking that someday US-based blog publishers will be outsourcing their writers to India.

    Its going on. Out sourcing to India is not new. many writers in India are wrighting as ghost writers and offering stable services. This is a good move by Indian SEO and love to join her network. Thanks for posting here.
