Every week, I open a Brag Basket, so you can introduce yourself or share some good news. So speak up and add yourself or another deserving soul in the comments. We all cheer, and everyone feels great.
It lets you meet each other a bit. Reading each others’ stories brings us a bit closer to being a community.
This particular basket is open from Nov. 6-Nov. 8, 2009. (I put dates so you won’t accidentally leave a comment on an old basket.)
How does it work? You write a comment on this post. You tell something great about your week, or you give plaudits to someone who did good stuff this week. Or you celebrate a terrific failure. It’s not an ad; it’s a conversation with friends. So jump in.

Good morning! I thought I’d drop by the brag basket and share what a great week we are having here in Franklin County. The tourism board is sponsoring me as a speaker at http://www.iblogconference.com – which is next weekend in Perry Iowa – and hey, I’M A SPEAKER! The Old Stone House Association kicked off their fundraiser Hollydazzle Historical Tour of Homes. http://www.oldstonehouse.org I’m helping to plan the annual chamber of commerce dinner and we are getting record turnout and silent auction donations.
I decided a year ago that I wanted to be a vibrant part of my community so I stepped up to the plate and swung! Becky and smallbizsurvival.com have been big supporters, silent helpers and great friends in the process.
I say we can all change the world – just start at home.

Becky, this brag basket is such a great idea, and such a win-win. I cannot compliment you enough, and admire you tremendously for coming up with it.
It’s funny that twice now, I’m noticing your brag basket invite following a very productive company-strategy meeting. There is much to brag about as to what we covered in our meeting yesterday, but instead I will brag about the nice sushi we took out from the AI Japanese Restaurant in Palm Coast, FL — so fresh, so delicious, made with love! Chef Sam there rocks!
Folks as you brag, just remember:

Have a nice weekend…
