Have you ever wondered what it would be like to finally say enough. Enough of other people's expectations of you. Enough of what society says you should be doing. Enough of living a lie that was slowly killing you inside?

I wondered for a long time. Then I did something about it. 

In 2011, I left behind my established life in Seattle (and a failing marriage) to embark on what was going to be a temporary journey to reclaim my spirit. So I packed my bags, grabbed my Corgi, and headed far, far south, to a tiny Caribbean island in the middle of nowhere.

What I didn't know at the time is that other people would find my experience brave and inspiring. I never imagined that. Yet along the way, I've met many people who have told me they are taking steps to improve their situations because they met me and heard my story. Whoa! That is something I never, ever, ever expected. Humbling, totally humbling.

And that's where we are today. What started as a fun blog to keep my family and friends back home updated on what I was doing in the Caribbean, has morphed into a website that delivers humor and inspiration about all the good things that can happen when you take a chance and change your life. I also shine a light on what life is really like living on a tiny rock in the middle of the sea. No, it's not exactly like the images the tourism bureau puts out. Not even close. It is bizarre and sometimes hard to explain, but it's always an adventure.

My blog project has been so successful that it has also turned into a nearly full-time job. Which I love, but can't keep doing alone. Literally or figuratively. As the site grows, so do the expenses related to it - from web hosting fees to the time it takes to craft posts and other creative elements. An extra set of hands to help with some of the admin tasks would be amazing, too!

I also want to keep growing the site, so I can reach even more people - people who need a little inspo to take that first step towards living a rich, fulfilling, and satisfying life. But growing takes time and money, which is where patrons come in. Especially since I think ads really detract from the experience. And affiliate marketing is just not my jam. I want people to love visiting the site without ever feeling like they're being sold something.

Instead, if there are people out there who like my content and want to support my creative endeavor, becoming a patron seems like the most logical way.

When you become a patron, you automatically become part of the Island Girl tribe. More great content gets produced, and more people get inspired. Whether it's just $1 a month or something more, every little bit helps keep The Adventures of Island Girl growing.

Much love,
Island Girl Liz
