Welcome to!

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, we give you SmileBait! Welcome to the web’s newest home of good news, positive stories, happy thoughts, and yes, a touch of humor here and there.

SmileBait was born out of the belief that life is simply too short to focus on the negative. One night beneath a tropical moon bathed in rum and hidden behind the billowing cloud of a Cuban cigar, I gazed to the heavens and asked, “What can I do about it?” And, the heavens answered: Start by getting out of the rain. You’ll catch pneumonia. Next, create a place where people can take a break from the negative and just smile for a little while.

And, with that, a plan was sketched out on a whiteboard in just a few twilight hours. Over the past month our team has put that plan together that began with our Smilebait on Facebook and we are pleased to announce the official birthday of SmileBait, September 23, 2015.

Please, don’t send cake, I’m on a diet.

Within our pages, you will find stories to inspire and tales to warm the heart. We will have tips on living a positive life and stories of the modern family. There will be stories that will make you laugh, and stories that will help you look at the world a little bit differently.

While each article and each writer will offer something different to our site, one thing we promise is that all of our stories have but one goal: To make you smile. That’s SmileBait.

We are delighted you have found us and we look forward to bringing you story after story, smile after smile. We hope you’ll enjoy being here as much as we enjoy writing for you. More importantly, we encourage you to leave us your feedback about the stories and the site. We’re a work in progress, so let us know what you want to read. We’re always listening to what you have to say.
