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?

amateurcatholic @ gmail.com

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.

Nick P: Amateur Catholic

My name is Nick and I have a problem:

I am an amateur Catholic blogger.

I have been blogging for about a year now. About the same time as I have been really into my faith. Like many around these parts I have learned more about my faith in the last 18 months than I did in the whole 8 years I went ot Catholic school.

My old blog is at www.piscotikus.com/blog and my new blog is at piscotikus.blogspot.com and I'll probably switch back because I have ADD when it comes to computers. I try and post every couple of days or so, but I enjoy reading blogs more than posting my own thoughts which is why I think I'd be agreat B-teamer. When I post, it's usually on things Ive read or the latest from the pro-life movement or what I get out of the days readings.

What I'd like to see from the B team is a community of B playas discussing encyclicals, fathers of the Church, scripture, as well as current events and sports. I rarely see any mention of sports on Catholic blogs. I wonder why that is...

What I can't stand are people who declare themselves as such and such kind of a Catholic. Your either Catholic or your not! I guess that would make me a Traditional Catholic ;)

On a more serious and personal note, I'm a pharmacist, recently married and expecting our first baby soon. What I'd really like is to open my own pharmacy someday and not sell BCs or the morning after pill. If anyone knows of any pharmacies out there like that let me know.
Hey Nick. Happy to see you're a genuine B-Teamer: Having fun going nowhere, yet refusing to check your faith at the door. Sounds like you have the prescription for moral pharmacology. Welcome to the B-Team.

I second the motion for sports discussions. Maybe it can be a weekly feature...like ESPN's "Not Top Ten" every Saturday (or is that Sunday) morning.

It's funny you should mention sport, since I have just now put up a post about a Catholic Mum from Tasmania (Australia) who has won the 3000m steeplechase in the lead up to the Commonwealth Games.
