The Brag Basket is our tradition of sharing. I feel like sharing ice cream this week. :)

The basket is always free and open all weekend, this one March 9-11, 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.

It’s so nice to hear uplifting stories about small towns and rural locales. After living in the big city for almost 30 years, I have enjoyed small town life immensely for the past 4. While it is nice to know that people around you are looking out for you, and your welfare, it also needs to be said that we need to share, be accountable to each other, and not dig behind each other’s back. Be thankful for the wonderful benefits of small town life.!
Love your marketing tips for small towns and small business. I work part-time for a small business in Canada and am very proud of the Facebook cover photo we created for our Facebook page, celebrating some of our clients. We used photos that I had taken to go along with the client success stories I write for each monthly newsletter. The FB page is at(Sunbelt Canada).
What do you think?

Smallbizjunkie Nancy, I’m glad you’re enjoying your small town life. I’m afraid there will always be people who don’t get it, though. But I’m with you, let’s all be thankful we have the chance to enjoy our small towns. :)
Karen, your photo beautifully showcases those smiling faces! And showcasing success stories is *always* a good idea. Good work!
