CVSTOS FIDEI tipped me off that my blog was mentioned in a New York Daily News article by Charles W. Bell called St. Blog’s cyberpews packed. The article is actually more about both religious and non-religious blogging than concentrating on Catholic blogs. For those who don’t know St. Blogs was coined by the first Catholic blogger Kathy Shaidle.
…There is an online fan club for Pope Benedict and diaries of seminarians. There are sites for lapsed Catholics, converts, overlooked saints, and priests offering their homilies to the whole wide world. Some are gimmicky – The Curt Jester promises "punditry, parody, polemics, politics and puns from a papist perspective."
Well gimmickry or not no publicity is bad publicity.
…One underrepresented category is Muslim blogs.
"We’re working on it," a center worker said this week. "We’ve got a page listing a whole lot of sites that provide information about Islam and Muslims, including one for gays. But blogs? That’s not up to us."
Blogging, he said, has not yet caught on among Muslims.
