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.

Erin: Amateur Catholic

Dear Amateur Catholic,
Please let me be on your B-Team.

I think I qualify because on my seventh grade basketball team, I
wasn't even allowed to start the C - TEAM after the coach had one
taste of my game-time skills.

I also think I qualify because my blog it a little blog, where
myself and the five people who know about it go to read my posts
which, sadly enough, read just as my thoughts happen in my head. I
actually think like I write my posts...uh and note that is not
something I say with pride. I really do think with weird syntax due to
reading too much Jane Austen and Anne of Green Gables when I was in my
pre-teens... it formed me, and now I'm stuck with it. So the
cheesiness, the dwelling on small details which I alone find
absorbing, the willingness to relate ANY thing to something I heard in
a theology class recently... this all is really me, unsensored. Sad,
but true. Asking to be on your team is a not at all a sign of pride,
but a sign of humility, the willingness to face the fact that people
might actually READ my little corner of the Internet!

Three cheers for B Team! Goooo B Team!

In Christ,
Erin.... to be found at my blog, "Like A Child", located at:
Asking to be on your team is a not at all a sign of pride, but a sign of humility...

Gee, thanks - I think... It's always humbling to find out that people consider associating with you to be humbling...or is it more like humilating? ;)

Glad to have you, Erin, and please accept my apologies for taking so long to get this posted. Welcome to the lowly B-Team.
