Ok so we've now got more than 25 folk participating in this little game of avoiding the b-word for the next few weeks, I thought it might be useful if we share our tips for playing.

As a starter, here's my top 3:

1.take a deep breath whenever you feel the need to b****: count to 5 and only then speak/write
2. substitute another bword – ideally something silly like BNARD (silly encourages you to avoid)
or, of course you could try…

3. Saying more precisely what you mean…

What are your thoughts?

UPDATE: David has set this up to help us nobranders keep in touch with each other

    Here’s an easy way to get to know your fellow campaigners:
    http://individurls.com/myfeeds/nobrandjan/
    This brings together the blogs of everybody who is listed on the appeal for volunteers post (http://herd.typepad.com/herd_the_hidden_truth_abo/2009/01/a-brandfree-january-appeal-for-volunteers.html).
    There are a few people missing. If you are one of them, please add a comment to this post providing the URL of your blog or twitter feed.
    Thanks

    (Mark I hope this isn’t too presumptuous of me.)
