One Year Already?

Happy Birthday American Catholic

I find it hard to believe, but The American Catholic is celebrating its one year birthday today.  I’ve enjoyed writing for the blog over the past year immensely, and I hope our readers and commenters have also had some fun.  Contributors  will be linking to some of their favorite posts.  Here are two of mine:

1.  report-to-the-emperor-first-draft-I posted this on Good Friday and I think I will make this a blog tradition of doing so each year.

2.  triumph-of-the-king-This I posted on Palm Sunday.

My friend and colleague Christopher Blosser is having some computer trouble.  Two of his posts that I greatly admire are:

1.  mitsuo-fuchida-from-pearl-harbor-to-calvary.

2.  catholic-campaign-for-human-development-tainted-by-acorn-or-still-rotten-itself.

In regard to Chris this list would be quite lengthy if I included all the posts he has written which I wish I had written!  Writer envy, it is a terrible thing!

I am sure the next year will be as crowded with events as the last one was.  The American Catholic will be here to comment on the passing scene,  as Americans and Catholics, with, I trust, a leavening of humor and at least a dash of common sense.

    I recently stumbled onto this site and I had no idea it was so young. Y’all do an excellent job. Congratulations, thank you and keep up the good work.

    Oh, and thanks for sucking so much time out of my day. I am honestly trying not to comment on the stories that are posted but I fear I cannot stop myself from yielding to temptation. Devious Catholic bloggers; I am hooked 🙂

    Thank you AK and Jay!

    Congratulations. It’s quite an achievement for a group blog, as they often peter out after an initial spike of interest. You guys just seem to be hitting your stride now. Kudos.
