But still Rediff bloggers rarely tend to migrate to Blogspot. Maybe because, Rediff also has its own set of goodies like the occasional sizzling blogs, where rediff picks a few blogs and display them on the main page often for more than months. Two of my blogs were there for about a month beginning of 2004, which was the reason I stuck there for so long, lol. And the post editor is also pretty user friendly. I myself couldn't shift for a long time. The reason I choose my blog's adress as anthonysmirror was because I started this as a mirror to my rediffblogs which was anthony.rediffblogs. I had opened this blogger account to write comments on blogger blogs which only allowed blogger users, and I thought I'd just copy my post from rediffblogs, so the name Anthonysmirror, funny though that the name stuck and I shifted to blogger.
Funnier though is the fact that a true desi blog( Isn't Rediff desier than Blogger or MT or WP) is not very popular among desi blogs. The few Rediffbloggers that I have often come across in Blogger Blogroll are AbsoluteLee and Jammy's Ouchmytoe. I believe Jammy's blog would have been more popular, had he shifted to Blogger. Other than those, I have come across very few rediffbloggers in the desi blogosphere. The reason, as I stated already, is the poor technological update of the rediff owners. No rediff blogs comes up on the result of any blog search engine. And technorati bots cannot trace them either.

I know most of my visitors also know DJ, but for those who don't just go and read the story on DJ's Blog. Its amazing. And it can't get any desier, with a backdrop of India's freedom struggle.
1931 was a sad year in Indian history, and a dejected one. The deaths of Bhagat Singh and his friend shook the country, as also eroded its self-confidence. Rifts were increasing – between Indians and British; between Indians themselves s the rulers stoked the communal fire with a devilish glee. More
