There has been a shift on what’s popular among blogs though. In the early years the most popular blogs were IT-based blogs. Then came public affairs and socio-politics, together with personal journals about daily life.

In 2009, however, blogs dedicated to hobbies and lifestyles, particularly fashion, started to take off.

Diana Rikasari, the most popular fashion blogger in Indonesia, is also the #1 blogger in the ranking of Indonesia Matters.
