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.

Kim: Amateur Catholic

I have been Catholic for little under a month. I suppose that's amateur right there.

For reasons that I have no clue about, I'm a a geologist/anthropologist who wants to make maps for a while in The Real World. I'm still an amateur in those, by the way. BUT. It's fun to watch people try and reconcile how I can study things like modern human origins and geology AND be a Catholic who likes going to Mass and will talk your ear off about all things related to Catholicism. Mmm. Church and science.

At any rate, there's my pleading. I write over at Transitus Tiber, but am currently in the Post-Confirmation Honeymoon Phase, so all my posts are about church at the moment. Except for the rare anthro posts that make it in.

Congratulations Kim! Welcome home! Go ahead and start posting about your other interests as they arise. If you wait for the honeymoon phase to end, you may never do it. It's been about ten years since I reverted back to the faith and I'm still honeymooning. Odds are you will be too. Welcome aboard!

Congratulations! How wonderful! I've been Catholic all my life but it took me almost 50 years to become Catholic! After 50 years I'm still an amateur!
