Most of the US jumped ahead one hour to daylight saving time (DST) at 2:00 a.m., Sunday March 11th. DST was a few weeks earlier than prior years thanks to the Energy Policy Act of 2005. Daylight savings time will last until Sunday, November 4th this year (it will also jump back to standard time later than before).
Did the ‘longer summer’ affect your online home business? Spring, Summer, and early Fall are the times when people typically begin to spend more time outdoors and less time in front of their computers. This extended DST may have negatively impacted business to your website or eBay store. But now that the new extended DST is winding down and the holiday season is coming on, it will be back to shorter days and perphaps more time in front of that computer!
