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.

Carolina Cannoball: Amateur Catholic

I have only been blogging for 5 months now and have only been Catholic for a year… can you get anymore wet behind the ears?

And as far as getting my work done… my boss inadvertently pays me for blogging and he doesn’t even know it. As long as he can hear my keyboard tapping away he is satisfied I am hard at work. Horrible, I know.

I couldn’t get some one to honestly pay me for my opinion, I have tried, so I decided to just give it away freely. I don’t get paid for public speaking either, so again, I offer that among my many free services. You basically can’t get away from me.

I started blogging because my family is a bunch of raging anti-Catholics and were horrified at my conversion. I wanted to shed some light on the Church for them… I got a little carried away. My mom is worried for my sanity.

I gave up the sarcasm and outrage on my blog for Lent, so it is tame right now… and it slowly killing me to “refrain”.(see here) My head wants to explode to post about the fodder from the Academy awards… among other things.(see here)

It would be an honor to be recognized as an amateur Catholic. I am proud to say “Hey, I don’t know too much. I am not too smart, but I try real hard!”

Hey - how do you like that? Blogging for only 5 months and she's already linking to herself like a pro. Good job, Carolina, and welcome. I will note here too, that I can't say I'm not a little disappointed to find more than one blogroll who doesn't have De Civitate Dei on it. Oh, the agony of it all...

I would like to thank the Academy for this honor & the prestigious badge of average-dom. And I am "proud to be out of touch!"

BTW... wonderful blog!

Apparently, Rick has no shame in begging for links to a defunct blog.

Hah! Thanks Carolina, but you need not're already in. :)

Begging, Jay? Just noting...

Kissing up, Rick? Just noting...

Good girl. I like the way you think...

Blogroll? I'm so amateur and so technically illiterate, I don't even know how to create a blogroll.

Beat that!

Any chance that Papa might update his Musum? I know he's on retreat and all. But I really want to know why he's called His Fluffiness. Rocco says it's cause of his white hair.

I don't know whether Papa will return to blogging and I don't know anything about any "His Fluffiness" thing. I don't read Rocco.
