What wonderful news will you choose to share? The basket is always free and open all weekend, from March 11-13, 2011. Since I’m in Texas for SXSW this week, you’ll have the cheer for each other this week. I leave you these Bluebonnets and Indian Paintbrushes to encourage you.

Even though I call this the Brag Basket, it’s not really about bragging. It’s about sharing. It’s here so you can introduce yourself, share some good news, or congratulate a friend.
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.
How does it work? You write a comment on this post, email me, tweet me, or comment on Facebook. You tell something great about your week, or you give applause to someone who did good stuff this week. Or you celebrate something wonderful that you tried that failed.
This is not an ad. (I delete the ads.) It’s a conversation with friends. So jump in. And remember to cheer for each other.

Becky, I am waiting for your commentary on the presentation, “What We Can Learn from Small Town Entrepreneurs,” you and Barry Moltz gave at the SXSW conference.
Recently Mark Collier wrote “40 Dead Simple Ways to Get More Comments on Your Blog.” At #22 he stated, “Encourage readers to promote themselves and share more about what they are doing. Becky McCray’s Brag Basket is a wonderful example of this.”

I have heard “The Stars At Night Are Big & Bright…Deep In The Heart Of Texas!”…
so enjoy the stars.
I don’t have much to say right at the moment. But I am happy to be communicating on Twitter, blog, and to have things to be looking forward to-one is my weekly visit here and to #blogchat – Steady as it goes. Thanks for providing this weekly anchoring spot.
See you around Twitterville’s central plaza.

Barbara, we had a great presentation! The crowd was full of small town people from Conway, Arkansas, to Ponce, Puerto Rico. It was a rich discussion on how we can apply small town lessons to any business now.
And Mack Collier is always saying nice things. :)
Wayne, we’re happy to have you here!
