- Catholic Bloggers Network
- Catholic bloggers, making a difference on the World Wide Web
I added "Advent: Another Year of the Long Watch" to this year's Catholic Bloggers Advent Linkup.
Their 2014 Catholic Bloggers Blitz is another good idea: but I don't remember participating.
There's a reason for that: maybe not a good one, but a reason nonetheless.
Participation in the Catholic Bloggers Blitz is easy:
- Put that button on your post or sidebar, with a link to the Catholic Bloggers Blitz
(they've got copy-and-paste code)
- Say what sort of blog you've got
- Visit at least two previously-linked posts
- Share the Catholic Bloggers Blitz link on whatever social media suits your fancy
Right: except Catholic Bloggers Network also, reasonably, want folks to share what sort of blog they write. Here's their second rule:
"Include the category initials at the beginning of the title or name you submit to the link-up:
RR= Readings and Reflections
CA= Catechism and Apologetics
LC= Liturgical Calendar
FJ= Family Journal
(Example: 'LC St Sebastian craft')"
A Catholic Citizen in America is 'none of the above.'
I quote from the Bible, and reflect on what it means; say why Catholic beliefs make sense; my wife and I homeschooled our kids; I occasionally mention what's happening in our family. I even bring up the liturgical calendar now and then.
In a way, every post is a 'reflection' on what being Catholic is like: but my posts aren't "reflections" in the sense of being a sort of sermon or homily.
I take 'truth in advertising' seriously: and don't want folks to come here expecting nice, normal reflections — and seeing the sort of stuff I do.
I'll keep on doing what I'm doing, and take part in Catholic Bloggers Network when I can. Maybe next year they'll have a 'none of the above' category.
