Q. When was the first time you thought of choosing blogging as a career?
Soon after my debut novel got released in sept 2013, I decided to dedicate my time to writing. That was the time when I became a full time writer and started blogging professionaly. Before that, AnamikaMishra.com was just a hobby blog where I used to share random happenings of my life.

Well, after completing my MJMC I got placed in a radio station as RJ for morning show. I left that job in 20 days. I didn’t even have any other option in my hands. All I knew was my debut novel was about to release in 2 months and I’d have to focus on that, because I all wanted to be is an author and being a RJ was just not my thing.
