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.

Mary in Texas: Amateur Catholic

Email #1
I am humbly applying for the position of 'Amateur Catholic' because I want to. Here are my qualifications:

1. Created my very own personal blog spot just so I could post to someone else's.
2. Cannot now FIND my very own personal blog spot now.
3. First name is Mary, which qualifies me as a professional Catholic, but others don't agree
4. If I ever find my blog, I will let one of my 7 teenagers fill it with moronic drivel - surely that alone qualifies me.
5. Best qualification of all - we moved OUT of the Lincoln, Nebraska diocese and don't regret it!
6. I am a life long 'B' team kinda person - played on the 'B' team at my all-girls, Catholic high school.

My blogging place is supposed to be: I think. Does this qualify me?

Mary in Texas

NEW AND BEST QUALIFICATION: I initially posted this application at MY OWN blog spot by following a link from your's that said, 'Blog This.'

Hi Mary,

I'm finally getting around to posting some applications. I tried going to your site, but the address must be wrong. You're off to an amateurish start - that's for sure... ;)

Hi Rick -

Just because I posted my email to you on my very own personal (unidentified) blog spot should certainly qualify me for your Hall of Fame. Well, now I have actually located my blog place and am sending you the address to prove that I was not attempting to infiltrate your B-Team.

Do I count yet? -mary
Yes Mary, you're off to a rip-roarin' amateurish start. Though, it's almost unconscionable that you moved out of Lincoln and don't regret it. Maybe you should try out the Diocese of Orange so you'll really appreciate what you lost. ;) Welcome aboard!
