Best Catholic Blog - 2012 About Catholicism Readers' Choice Awards Finalists
The 2012 Readers' Choice Awards Finalist Logo

Catholic blogs come in all shapes and sizes—some written by laymen, some by priests, others by religious; some are attached to broader Catholic websites (see the next category), and some stand on their own. These five finalists were chosen by the readers of the About.com Catholicism GuideSite as the Best Catholic Blog. Read a brief description of each of the finalists for Best Catholic Blog, then scroll down to vote for your favorite!

Best Catholic Blog Finalists:

  • Catholic and Enjoying It! (http://www.patheos.com/blogs/markshea/)

    Catholic author and apologist Mark Shea declares that the purpose of his Catholic and Enjoying It! is "So That No Thought of Mine, No Matter How Stupid, Should Ever Go Unpublished Again!" But regular readers of Shea's work would object to such a description of his incisive commentary, humor, and scholarship. A convert, Shea embraces the Catholic Faith in its fullness.
