Amateur Catholic

We don't write books or do speaking tours.
In fact, we barely do our jobs.
-We're the B-Team of Catholic Bloggers-

This is the home of the Amateur Catholic® bloggers - or as we like to refer to ourselves, the B-team. We don't write books or do speaking tours. In fact, we barely do our jobs. That's not to say we're unambitious though... You see, this coalition is just the second phase our blogoshpere conquest. We suppose you could think of us as amateur crusaders too.

Membership will not bring you any money, perks, notoriety, or prestige - but you will get the privilege of proudly displaying the B-team badge on your blog! Lucky you, huh?

If you are hosting a conference, parish function, or some other event and can not afford the exorbitant fees typically associated with a Professional Catholic®, please contact one of our members. We like to hear ourselves talk just as much as the Professional Catholics® do, we just don't charge you for it. But hey give us a meal, free beer, and a designated driver, and we'll speak about breaking the Da Vinci Code or anything else you might care to hear about.

The B-Team badge is copryright 2006, The B-Team Bloggers®. Of course, we're Amateur Catholics®, so if you use the badge without permission (enrolled membership), we won't hunt you down and make you cough up your hard-earned bucks. Just have fun with it and maybe buy us a beer next time you're in town.

Anonymous Teacher Person (aka Roadie): Amateur Catholic

Hello! I cannot tell you my name, for fear that hordes of my intrepid student investigators will storm this site in a flurry of Googling.

I see that someone else has already laid claim to the role of Waterboy. My niche having been filled, I would like to volunteer as Roadie to all the other Amateur Catholics.

My blog, Scrutinies, is a chance for me to keep a record of my foibles as a high school religion teacher, unburdened by technicalities like a theology degree. All names are changed to protect the invincibly ignorant. I also started off my blog with a sonnet to the laminating machine in the library, which curiously did not win me a coveted nomination for "most bizarre post" or whatever the category is. You can expect to see me anytime I have mountains of papers to grade and want to procrastinate…just like now.

Technically, I am paid to speak to impressionable youths each day, but since only 22% of them are listening to me at any given moment, I do not think this makes me a Professional Catholic. I also get a bunch of the minor prophets confused. Further documentation of my amateurism can be provided.

See you round the blogosphere!

Anonymous Teacher Person
I, personally, am most impressed by anyone who writes a sonnet to the laminating machine (especially one in the library, which is elegant in its specificity). Welcome aboard, Anonymous.

Thank you!!!! I am honored to be part of The Revolution.

Will there be instructions somewhere on this site for the template-impaired explaining how to, appropriate...the snazzy blue button?

Rock on! Now I have a button!

I have hit the BIG TIME! Must contact my portfolio manager to alert him of incoming funds from this lucrative new publicity tool.

Er...I mean, ad majoram dei gloriam!

I am pleased to be welcomed aboard, and it is with due deference that I request to be abbreviated as ATP, since there are so many Anonymos?
