Welcome to the Brag Basket, our tradition of sharing. The basket is always free and open all weekend, this one December 6-8, 2013. What good news will you add to 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.

    I’m going to step into the Brag Basket this week to say how proud I am of what we have built here for the support of small towns. Our 8th anniversary is coming up in January, so I’m sure I’ll wax poetic then, but for now, I’ll just say we’re the best blog with contributors named both Glenn and Glenna!
