The Brag Basket is our tradition of sharing. The basket is always free and open all weekend, this one June 15-17, 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.

Okay – I’ll brag! It’s been a good week for tourism in Hampton Iowa. We had a concert by Tim Culpepper in our newly restored Band Shell. Our Tourism Board met and had a speaker from Central Iowa tourism who talked about Franklin County (that’s us) leading the state in social media usage (that’s what I do!). I’m speaking at the State of Now/140 Character Conference in NYC this week and also cohosting a portion of it. Yup, it’s been a great week!
