Ladies, gents, all genders….
( THIS IS IMPORTANT READING FOR ALL THE LADIES WHO WERE WAITING FOR WEB WORK LAST WEEK)
Good morning and I wish everyone a great week this week!
I wanted to clear up somethings that I didn’t initially want to discuss publicly, but here we are.
I am very open with you all, always and many of you knew I was going on a trip with my daughter to Miami. It was
public knowledge. I guess I expected that you would know that any services paid or discussed about 2 days prior to my departure would not begin until I got back. Again I guess that was an assumption I should not have made. (keep in mind on my site it already says 10-14 and in some cases 20 days for most project completions and that is dependent on you, and when you communicate and get things to me)
BUT, then I had a flare up with an ongoing health issue I have NEVER wanted to discuss publicly. I suffer from
sometimes debilitating Psoriasis. Now if it were on areas of my skin and body that I didn’t need to really function and work that would be ok. However, my Psoriasis affects my hands and my feet primarily when it flares badly. On top of that already painful,cracked skin I usually have ill effects from the medicines used for it. So last week when I said on Twitter and in emails to clients who were waiting for work to be done that I was in bed for 2 days but could still help my assistant clients that was why.
Upon returning from Miami one of my feet had an area that had actually cracked and was so painful I could not walk. I was in bed 3 days so it could heal. MY HANDS had cracks and inflammation literally in every crevice or joint area of my fingers and palms. THERE WAS NO WAY I COULD DO WEB WORK LAST WEEK…. ( assistant work requires a lot less typing ( not a lot less work, its work) as most is copy and paste or fingertip typing to look up
peoples info. It is not nearly as extreme as the hand use I use when doing a web site)
My hands and feet were literally smothered in medicines and wrapped in saran wrap!!!! So please understand I simply was not physically able to do web work last week. I apologize for delays, that’s all I can do.
As a woman and an escort the last thing I wanted to share was my auto immune disorder of my skin!
I literally emailed, kept in touch ( as best I could ) and kept informed every client I have.
I AM HUMAN, FOLKS. I get ill. Things happen to me. I do not EVER leave anyone high and dry.
I am not a web designer, photographer or assistant who disappears with your money and then you do not hear
from me or get your project for MONTHS. I have seen daily girls who pay for websites and it takes 3 mos for some of them to get the finished result or the designer never completes the work. Same with photographers.
I simply needed time to heal! LITERALLY NEEDED 5 extra days to heal.
Soon as I healed I got to work. Let me inform you all of what turnaround time means…
Turnaround time basically involves where you fall in a list of projects. If others were ahead of you, paid before you
then that extends your turnaround time. It is not the exact amount of days it takes your web designer to do the work.
For example. Because I am tech savvy and web design savvy it only takes me about 2-3 days to pump out a WIX, OR SQUARESPACE SITE.
For custom coded sites or WordPress PHP and other platforms it usually takes about a full week.
The point I am making is some of you have done your own websites before and had very little web design knowledge or were busy with other daily tasks so it took you much longer. So then you become panicked and don’t trust the process when you hear from me on a Saturday or Sunday
and I say your site will be done Tuesday or Weds. Trust me at no time with my reputation on the line or honestly just with my own EGO am I going to put out to the public a substandard, bad , ugly, non functional site. If I have to work around the clock with very little sleep to get your promised project out to you on time … I WILL. Just know that I know what I am doing and I am quite efficient at it.
Honestly even when I am ill etc, if its a custom coded site or ANY ( WordPress etc) other platforms besides WIX OR SQUARESPACE. My partner takes up the slack and completes projects for me . HE SIMPLY WILL NOT TOUCH WIX OR SQUARESPACE SITES, He hates the platforms and I respect that. So in those
cases if there is a delay its because I genuinely needed to delay. NOT because I just am taking my sweet time.
Please respect me, my process and my health.
Thank you and I hope moving forward this clears up any misunderstandings on
turnaround times and on communication. I always communicate and you all need to do the same
with and for me if I am working with and for you.
