What's the Story with the StrayGoat Name?

The question that everyone asks! Some people think it is related to Derbyshire, but it isn't. Way back when I first met my wife, we lived in different towns, so on the days where we weren't meeting up, we would 'chat' on Yahoo messenger (yes, it was that long ago!). Her handle on yahoo was Straygoat followed by some random numbers, so when I needed something unique for the business name, I used Straygoat. Much to her continued annoyance, I might add.

How Long has StrayGoat been in Business?

StrayGoat Writing Services Ltd. was formed in 2012. It is the natural successor to Straygoat Copywriting, a business I formed some years before that, as a hobby. While I still offer some copywriting services, I prefer to focus on technical writing these days.

Are you Insured?

Yes, I have business insurance through Hiscox. Proof of insurance can be provided if required.

Why You Should use StrayGoat?

  1. I know how to plan and write content that will enhance your business. Using tools such as Paligo or MadCap Flare, I can make your content easier and cheaper to update, and at the same time, create engaging content that gives your customers the help they need, whenever they need it.
  2. I have the soft skills that are needed to extract technical information from SMEs without causing friction or wasting people’s time. Do I ask a lot of questions? Yes, I do. But they are always relevant to what your audience needs to know and I’m always sensitive to the work of your experts.
  3. I have worked in agile environments, so know about stand-ups, stories, sprints, etc. Most of my career has been in software teams, so I know how they work and how to work effectively as part of a team.
  4. I’m affordable and flexible. If you have work, but don’t want a technical writer on board 5 days per week, that’s not a problem. I’m not one of those writers who wants to be working 5 days a week at the top possible rate – the type of project and work/life balance are more important to me. So let’s discuss what you need.
  5. I have worked with leading technical authoring tools, such as Paligo, MadCap Flare, and Atlassian Confluence.
  6. I'm driven. You don't need to hold my hand - just tell me what you need, point me in the direction of your SMEs and let me do my thing.
