Admittedly personal sites are tough to let into the Network because you are never quite sure where the content is going and therefore the consistency in quality is questionable. However, Ms. Lindsay has her stuff together. A beautiful site with an imaginative way of opening the door to her life. Personl? Yes. Amateur? Not even close.

Formerly known as DizzyLimits, Dizzy Island is the latest evolution of my personal blogging experience. I have been blogging for almost 7 years; essentially before blogging ever became the craze that it is today. One thing that I feel sets my blog apart from other personal blogs is that I often write about things that other people find far too personal to share with the whole world. Even the layouts I design for my site are highly personal, and are a graphical poetic expression of whatever I may be going through at the present time. My life truly is an open book, and it is my candid nature that has helped me to retain my readership over the years. On the same token, a lot of these ultra-personal subjects make people
uncomfortable, and I think that is why my blog has continued to be somewhat of an ‘unknown’ in the blogging community. I’m really honored and excited about being accepted into the 9rules Network. If my blog only ever accomplishes one goal, I hope it would be to encourage people to venture out of their comfort zones to discuss challenging subjects such as
financial instability, disordered eating, spiritual indecision, mental illness and infertility; issues that many of us face, but are too afraid or ashamed to talk about.

Welcome Lindsay.
