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.

Suzy Rice: Amateur Catholic

Hi, Amateur Catholic:

I write a blog (BIRD which can be found at:, am a Catholic, and wondered if I could join your Amateur Catholic blogroll.

I tend to be outspoken mostly about cultural and political issues and some of that seems lately to be contrary to some positions taken by the American Catholic Bishops -- yet I maintain respect for the Vatican and blessed Pope Benedict (it seems the
American Catholic Bishops are often pushing the limits of what the Vatican directs, is my point, and I tend to side almost always with the Vatican so that puts me at odds with more liberal Americans among Catholics).

I don't know it that sets me apart from your blogroll or not but I would be proud to join your blogroll and to display your logo on my blog.

Please advise and best wishes,

S. E. Rice
It's okay Suzy. You're not alone in being at odds with dissenting bishops. But what really matters here is just that you're an Amateur Catholic and I believe you are. Welcome aboard!

Thanks so much for including me and my blog.

I just found this linkup permission process by reading and following my website stats, while here I'd been thinking that when I didn't receive an emailed response, I'd failed the application process! Ha.

So, thanks for linking me up and I'll go find a place on my blog, BIRD, for your logo.

Sorry Suzy, I usually don't send any sort of notice, unless I have another reason to write. Aside from being to amateurish to be considerate like that, I figure any real amateur will be coming here to check on their status instead of doing what they are supposed to be doing.
