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.

Peace Pilgrim: Amateur Catholic

I am such a bad blogger. I am neither witty, nor erudite. My writings are never pithy, insightful and brilliant. Amy Welborn, I'm not.

To make matters worse, not only am I an amateur blogger, I am an amateur Catholic. A lowly neophyte who brings new meaning to naivete, I only recently arrived home last Easter vigil.

He tells us that we should come to Him like children, and I did. Yes, I'm one of "those" starry-eyed, naively enthusiastic, and overoptimistic converts.

My blog is blawg-awful! It is so amateurish, so cheesy, so ridiculous, so pathetic, so unimaginative, so boring that professional bloggers never visit me. If they did, they'd mostly ignore me, never finishing the first post and leaving mystified as to why anybody would bother to put it online.

I guess I bother because writing with my heart is my way of praying.
God didn't pick the best when He picked me...

“Whoever welcomes a child like this one in My Name, welcomes me.”
Well it sure sounds like you're an Amateur, but I'll tell you what; send some of that Hawaiian weather to Detroit and I'll make you a Super-Amateur. ;)

Welcome to the B-Team!
