The Brag Basket is open! This one is for January 10-12, 2014.

What can you do in the Brag Basket?

  • introduce yourself
  • share some great news from this week
  • congratulate a friend
  • applaud for each other

How do you join in?

  • Below this post is the comment section. Add your brag there.
  • If you read these by email, just reply to the email with your brag. I’ll add it to the comments.

Don’t like to brag? Just share some good news for yourself or a friend.

Do you have to be from a small town? Well, no, not really. Just don’t make it an ad. I delete the ads that people stick in here. 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.

New here? Take the Guided Tour. Like what you see? Get our updates.

    Chris Miller sent this worthy brag by email:
    “I wanted to give you an update about our effort to get Crowdfunding enshrined in Michigan law. I am very happy to report we did just this, getting a bill introduced via our state representative – Rep Nancy Jenkins, Lenawee County MI – in October, and getting it through both houses of the Michigan Legislature (1 ‘no’ vote and 147 ‘yes’ votes)and signed by the Governor at the end of 2013. Michigan becomes the 5th state and 2nd to support a crowdfunding mechanism with state law.

    To say we are excited is an understatement, and we are presently working on five local potential crowdfunding projects. We expect to announce what we believe will be the first crowdfunding campaign in the state using the new law in the next two weeks!

    Best Regards,

    Christopher D. Miller

    Congratulations, Michigan and Chris!
