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.

Mike (aka Waterboy, aka Captoe): Amateur Catholic

Hi, my name's Mike, and I'm an amateur Catholic.

This feels a little twelve-steppish, doesn't it? Ya know? Like "I'm a friend of Bob's and I have a problem with Catholic blogging" and such.

My name's Mike, but don't call me the 'other Mike' or the 'tall Mike', please? If it comes to that I'm Captoe. OK?

I blog at Inedible Ink and I've been stalking Der Tommissar's Donegal Express and Penni's martha, martha for quite some time.

(I am right now raising a fund to buy a shift-key for the excellent writing staff at martha, martha.)

If you don't have room on the B-Team, maybe there's a B-list, or some kind of an unpaid B-team internship out there for me. Waterboy, you'll need a waterboy.

Thanks for your consideration,

You certainly travel in good company, what with Der and Penni as references. And you have all those name options! Good move for such a crowded place as this is turning out to be. Welcome!
