Holy amaze-balls, I’m writin’ a blog. I hadn’t imagined myself as the blogging kind, but I started reading some other folk’s blogs and I became immersed in the culture. There’s so much we can learn from one another. We can grow from each other’s mistakes and celebrate in one another’s victories. I’m kind of addicted to the camaraderie.
I have admired the stark honesty that emerges from stories of moms in crisis, kids who are scared, and friends who make us laugh at ourselves. People have been brave and bold as they put their hearts and spirits on display for all to witness. It’s pretty powerful stuff.
And I want in.
I promise I won’t hold back. I, too, will be honest and brave. The name says it all: Positively Paige.
This blog will be unvarnished. It won’t always be shiny. There may be some not-so-glossy traits and thoughts that reveal themselves. To ignore those sides of me is futile. If I want the blog to be honest, I must embrace my whole journey. In my gut I believe it will be liberating.
However, I am basically a positive person. I believe in putting out what you want to get back from the Universe. Stop gagging, it’s true! And thankfully, I have a very happy life. That is the untarnished part of me. The part that is indeed sunny, not jaded, and very hopeful.
I won’t always be the perky, bubbly person you know from TV. But I will always be real and I’m betting you’ll prefer that anyway. Don’t you just want to strangle those eternally happy Pollyanna types sometimes? Ha!
So pour a glass of your favorite adult beverage (mine happens to be a gin martini) and pull up a chair. Join me for the joys, the disappointments, the failures, and the triumphs. Let’s get to know one another — unvarnished, untarnished, and for real.

Welcome to the blogosphere, my dear Paige! Inspired to call you my peer! xo
Welcome to the world of blogging. It’s exciting, exhausting, demanding, rewarding and a whole lot of crazy.
No gin martini for me (although it is my favorite adult beverage – complete with blue cheese stuffed olives) as it is just before lunch. Congratulations on the launch of your blog! I will be a dedicated follower. Been a supporter of yours for a long time and think you are a bundle of talents!
All the best!!!
More than happen to join the conversation. You’re right in that everyone’s journey, the good and the bad, can be enlightening to others. I’ll endeavor not to bore you 🙂
Happy…more than happy to join the conversation…damned auto correct.
Congratulations on this new chapter of your journey! I look forward to getting to know the real Paige….
One of the things I realized in my evolution as a writer was that the most responses and comments I ever received was when I was most raw and honest in my posts…..scary, but when you get the comments or emails about how your courage to be who you are helped someone else? Worth every moment of self-doubt. 🙂
Welcome to the blogosphere! Big fan from my own TLC days (worked at Discovery way back in the day).
Welcome, Paige!! I got sucked into the blog-osphere a few years ago and I absolutely love it! I’ve met some amazing people through blogging and I have learned so much from them.
I look forward to reading more posts!
Welcome to the club. It’s a big one with lots of laughing, fighting, crying, and hugging.
Get ready for a crazy ride.
Welcome! I look forward to reading all about your blogging adventures!
