Every week, I open a new Brag Basket. It’s not really about bragging. It’s about sharing. I started this so you can introduce yourself or share some good news.
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 Jan 8-10, 2010.
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. And remember to cheer for each other!
This week, I also want to share an note I just received via email:
I am Dominique, French and I run a blog about and for freelancers.
Recently Chris Brogan mentioned your brag basket.
Curious, I went to have a look and just found in love with the idea. Today, I wrote a note about it, asking my reader if they would like a “brag basket” on my blog as well. So far, they enjoy the idea, because it’s a positive, engaging and I’m sure it will give them ideas and opportunity to share.
Here is the link to the note:

Thank you for your blog, very inspiring.
Now, how cool is that?
