One of our traditions at Small Biz Survival is the Brag Basket. The basket is always free and open all weekend, this one June 17-19, 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.

I would like to brag about Becky and Cody. You were great at the 140conf yesterday. You expressed your interest, expertise, and enthusiasm for small towns, the internet, and connecting to others in that that short time period.
Also, would like to brag on Deb Brown for her faithful tweets at the event.
Becky, can you remove my typo, please. Should have read that very short time period. Thanks! sign me queen of typos.

I’m bragging today about my friends Deb and Becky, who had fun & participated in the 140 Characters conference in NYC.

And I know that Miss Dazey bragged about the same thing – but I thought it was double brag-worthy!

I’m excited about a new project a few of us have started in our small town. It’s called Reimagine Goldendale and the focus is on youth retention. We are concentrating on the areas of employment, education, and social/recreational opportunities for young people in the 18 to 30 year age range. We even have a facebook page, with (a whopping) 37 fans! The project is just a couple of weeks old so I have high hopes good things will come out of it. Check it out on fb at Reimagine Goldendale.

I wanted to brag about our Oceanit team attending their first Paris Air Show! They have a lot of Aloha, Hawaii goodies and are sharing our HFDS technology: http://flash.oceanit.com :)
