I've been getting asked recently for quotes on web design jobs, either converting joomla sites to wordpress, or completely custom wordpress websites. I decided that i would like to charge hourly rather than by project, but the thing is I find it quite difficult to estimate how many hours a job will take, or giving quotes.

Also what if you quote a client for a job and it ends up taking much much longer, you're kind of bound to the original quote.

Another thing ive noticed is that people don't seem to appreciate the value of web design. I quoted someone 500 for a job earlier and got told "they dont have anywhere near that".

Part of me is thinking, is it really worth my time then considering how many hours will go into it?
