Hello, island souls.

I hope this post finds you well and still able to enjoy your beautiful islands while isolating.

I have an opportunity that I’d like to share—something that perhaps some members of this incredible community will find exciting.

Here’s the big news: I’ve decided it’s finally time for me to step aside and find a new Head Woman for Women Who Live on Rocks.

This site has been my passion for the past seven years, and I have put so much of my heart into it since the day I launched it. Forming this global community of island-loving people has brought me immeasurable joy. I’m so grateful to this site for bringing countless friendships into my life, and more fun than I could have ever imagined.

 

 

But, my life has changed dramatically since I started it in 2012 and I no longer have the time or energy to commit to it anymore. The hurricanes of 2017 really shook up my life in ways I couldn’t have predicted. I’m thankful that my own business has really taken off, and I need to give all of my focus to that. And with no time in the foreseeable future that I’ll be back living on an island full-time (at least for awhile), it just feels like this community needs someone who’s living the island life right now at the helm.

While I could simply close the virtual doors, I really don’t want to see this thriving community fizzle out. It’s my hope that I will find the right person to continue the legacy and help take Women Who Live on Rocks to the next level.

There’s a ton of potential here for the right candidate. We have a large, engaged audience around the world that grows everyday when someone, somewhere thinks, I wonder what it’s like to move to an island…

Perhaps you own an island business and have experience in the digital world. Perhaps you’re a writer/blogger looking for a platform of your own that you don’t have to start from scratch. Or, perhaps you’re an island girl looking for a way to connect more with a community of like-minded spirits.

 

 

If something has sparked in you while reading this post, please do reach out to me via email: [email protected] . If you’re seriously interested, I can provide you with a sales package that shares the numbers and info behind the brand opportunity. Please do also share some background about yourself and what you’re looking for. What’s most important to me is finding someone who’s passionate about the community and wants to grow it with their vision, while still maintaining the island fun that our writers and readers have always appreciated.

While things are temporarily moving a little slower in the world at the moment, this could be an excellent time for a new owner to take the wheels and put in the time to transition the site into their own.

If you know anyone who might be interested, please feel free to pass this along and give them my contact info.

Thank you for all of your support over the years. Connecting with you all through your comments, your submissions, and more has delighted me beyond words. Please trust that I will work to find another island woman who will continue to rock this space and add more value to your island life here online.

I’ll provide more details if/when a transition takes place. In the meantime, we’re doing some fun takeovers on Instagram, so please do join us there to get a peek into some interesting island women’s lives on rocks around the world.

Sending you sunshine, 

Chrissann

Chrissann’s home rock in the British Virgin Islands feels bigger to her than it actually is. Though after spending five years on a teensy one acre island, the current 13-mile long rock she’s residing on now IS ginormous, at least by comparison. As with everything in the tropics, it’s all about perspective.

Once upon a time she used to care about things like matching her purse to her pumps but these days, any activities that require a bra and shoes go under careful, is-this-even-worth-it consideration. If island life has taught her anything at all, it’s that few things are more rewarding than time spent in the pool with a cocktail in hand.

As the Editor in Chief of this site, she spends her days working from home with her blue-eyed sidekick, Island Dog Diego, writing, editing, and cultivating content in the hopes of bringing some laughter and lightness to her fellow island souls. She recently published her first children’s book, When You’re a Baby Who Lives on a Rock, and is pretty pumped to share it with all of the island mamas out there. Her days off are typically spent boating, hiking, and meeting up with the neighborhood’s imperious roadside goats, who she shamelessly bribes into friendship. While normalcy was never listed as one of her special skills, Caribbean life may indeed be responsible for new levels of madness. She attributes at least a smidge of her insanity to the amount of time she spends talking to drunk people.

If you’re somehow still reading this and feel inclined to find out more about this “Chrissann” of which we speak, you can also take a gander at her eponymous website or follow her daily escapades on Instagram @womanonarock.
