Every week, I open a new Basket. I call it the Brag Basket, but it’s not really about bragging. It’s about sharing. I started this so you can introduce yourself, share some good news, or congratulate a friend.
The basket is open all weekend, from April 30-May 2, 2010.
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 this note 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.

My name is Sabrina Matteson and I serve as the director of rural affairs at the American Farm Bureau Federation. I have launched a new blog, http://ruralcommunitybuilding.fb.org/, that offers resource ideas to help county and state Farm Bureau leaders improve the quality of life in rural communities.
Topics on the website “Rural Community Building” include agritourism, broadband, education, energy, entrepreneurship, funding opportunities, local food systems, wealth transfer and USDA news.
The site is intended to be an easy-to-use tool for rural community building and is accessible to all. The site is searchable by subject category and comments are welcome. The blog also offers the opportunity for dialog and sharing ideas. Users may subscribe to daily posts or a weekly digest of items posted.
