The Brag Basket is our tradition of sharing. Since I was late getting it open, I’m blaming the puzzling basket in our basket photo this week. :)
|How do you get into this basket??

The basket is always free and open all weekend, this one March 2-4, 2012. Have some good news this week? Put it in the Brag Basket.
Don’t hold back because of that word, “brag.” When you hold back, you hide your good news and accomplishments that might inspire others. Even though I call this the Brag Basket, it’s not really about bragging. It’s about sharing.
What can you do in the Brag Basket?
- introduce yourself
- share some great news from this week
- congratulate a friend
- laugh about something wonderful that you tried that failed
- applaud for each other
Speak up and add yourself or another deserving soul in the comments. 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. We all cheer, and everyone feels great.
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.

Brag, brag, brag. Last night I was google chatting with my 14-year-old niece about her latest assignment for journalism class. She actually used “op-ed” in a sentence. I don’t think I knew what an op-ed was when I was 14 (and I’m a professional writer).
As long as I’m in brag mode, one of my writer’s coaching clients just sold her 5-book series to a publisher (traditional publisher). Woo hoo!

Diana, cheers to your niece and to your client! Hooray!
