Frame your good news in the Brag Basket

The Brag Basket is our tradition of sharing. The basket is always free and open all weekend, this one Nov 9-11, 2012. Have some good news this week? Put it in the Brag Basket.

Don’t hold back because of that word, “brag.” When you hold back, you hide your good news and accomplishments that might inspire others. Even though I call this the Brag Basket, it’s not really about bragging. It’s about sharing.

What can you do in the Brag Basket?

  • introduce yourself
  • share some great news from this week
  • congratulate a friend
  • laugh about something wonderful that you tried that failed
  • applaud for each other

Speak up and add yourself or another deserving soul in the comments. It lets you meet each other a bit. Reading each others’ stories brings us a bit closer to being a community.

How does it work? You write a comment on this post. We all cheer, and everyone feels great.

This is not an ad. (I delete the ads.) If you talk more about the people involved than the things, you’ll be fine.

It’s a conversation with friends. So jump in. And remember to cheer for each other.

    Okay, I’m going to share something I’ve been holding back a couple of weeks while we made it official. There’s a Christian Music Artist who made a big splash back in 2003 named Nate Sallie. He had a couple of radio hits, released another album in 2007 and quietly dropped off the radar a bit. Since his sophmore album I’ve held him in really high regard, definitely in my top 5 favorite musicians. He’s got another album coming out in January. I follow him on Twitter, and he tweeted out one of his new tunes, which was linked to his website. I told him point blank “Nate, your song’s great, but your site needs work.” I could hardly believe it when he replied! So, long story short, I’m now working on Nate Sallie’s new website. OMG!
