Why i am writing this?
Well i used to write “I took __ hours to create this blog. Why not spend 2 minutes in sharing this?” for marketing purposes. And i used to change the number of hours often. Just approximately. Once i was changing it, and suddenly it dawned on it, why not write a complete coverage of this blog. From how much time it took to how i worked. So here it goes.
