One of our traditions at Small Biz Survival is the Brag Basket. The basket is always free and open all weekend, this one from April 8-11, 2011.

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. Don’t hold back because of that word, “brag.” when you hold back, you hide your good news and accomplishments that might inspire others.
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.

Jane Reed emailed me about this event that adds to the local economy. I thought it sounded like good Brag Basket stuff:
This blog post is about an event that ads to the local economy and brings in visitors to our area. This is the second year for this event, and I was told yesterday by an event organizer that two people who have been introduced to our town via Spyderfest are looking for property so that they can move to the area. For a town of less than 3500, events can add vitality to a town’s economy and culture.
Len Damouth and his family’s business Cowtown USA has provided good service to their Spyder customers and built on their goodwill to bring Spyderfest to Cuba. It is a synergistic experience.

I like visiting small biz survival – it reminds me of the great global picture when I see that Cuba is in Missouri and has a romance all its own. Last night I heard a weather alert for Pocahontas Iowa, and of course there is What Cheer, Iowa which has been memorialized in world literature through Miss MacIntosh, My Darling the great American Novel. There is as much “romance” (in the literary sense, “poetry” “mysticism” “allure”) in Talihina, Hooker, Marcus Hook, Slapout, and Intercourse (Pennsylvania of course) as there is in Paris France.
I’m braggin’ on small towns.

Or Paris, Texas. Thank you, Wayne!
