I have decided to add business hours, instead of working all of my waking hours, as I am no longer working nights/weekends so I can spend time with my partner, and not always be working through the time we have together. This may vary, but is my new routine I'll be sticking to as closely as possible. While most of my clients are on facebook, I will be posting this to most of my sites and updating it in my TOS for all my clients to see ^^
Tuesdays; 5pm - 8pm (I see my best friend every Tuesday and do not take work with me)
Every other week day; 10am - 8pm
Please be aware this is in New Zealand Time!
I hope this will help with clients asking for updates and checking my queue! Now when I give a deadline (eg; 2-4 days) I will be saying 2-4 'working' days, to accommodate the fact I will no longer be working or online on my weekends. I may or may not reply to DMs outside of these hours, fully dependent on what Im doing with that time. Im trying to organise my life, and make time for the things that are important to me, while still having a working schedule.
