Our Mission

 Freelancing in Straight Jackets is owned and operated by Cara Garrsion. I have 14 years of experience writing for an online audience - including ghostwriting, website content, eBooks, and a large selection of clients in various niches. I have experience in a large number of blogging websites, including Wix, Weebly, Blogger, and WordPress...just to name a few. 


Why I Chose Blogger

You may be wondering... if I have so much experience writing online and developing website and blog content, why did I choose blogger as a platform for this blog? Simply put, I chose Blogger to show new writers that it is possible to grow a profitable blog on a free platform with a 99-cent domain name. Heck, you don't even need your own domain name to start growing a blog on blogger, but I felt it was a suitable domain name for a freelancing mom with 4 boys. This place gets a little crazy sometimes. 


Chaos Doesn't Mean You Won't Be Successful!

I'm not going to lie to any of you, being a work-from-home freelancer with kids can get a little chaotic and crazy at times. Sometimes you want to pull your hair out, but the more you learn the less frustrating it can be. Keeping a schedule, understanding limitations, and following reputable blogs that teach you how to navigate the information overload that many new freelancers face is unbelievably important.
