Jennifer CunninghamIn a repeat performance, Austin freelancer Jennifer Cunningham uses blogsTwitter and other social media tools to help her stand out as a freelancer. She shared with members of Freelance Austin her approach to using social media in her career.

Jennifer writers on her personal blog (We <3 Austin Art), contributes to the Launch787 blog, and serves as Austin’s Art Events Examiner and Wearable Art Examiner.

Jennifer is a freelance artist, writer and designer in Austin. As a divorced mother of three, finding the “right” job that met the financial and schedule-related needs of her family became nearly impossible, so she began seeking and securing freelance workundefinedfirst focusing on online media, and over time transitioning primarily to jobs in her lifelong field of choice.

Jennifer now makes and sells art, craft and fashion products on Etsy, with the majority of her day-to-day business coming from custom orders. Check out her work at
