I know, right? AoftheA’s return to The Valley of the Blogs was mere months ago, and yet here I am, moving the blog again.
Truth to be told, this move was planned months before Patheos and I parted ways. Rebecca Frech (Shoved To Them, now at Backwards in High Heels) and I came up with this idea in late 2015. Today, with several other like-minded bloggers, we’ve launched The Catholic Conspiracy.
What’s The Catholic Conspiracy all about? Here’s a snippet from our introductory post:
We felt the Catholic blogosphere lacked something – a smaller scale group blog, where writers wouldn’t get lost within the crowd. Where their distinct, Catholic voice could be expressed and heard. We have invited other bloggers to join us who believe as we do, to form this online community of faith, hope, and charity. At the moment, we’re pretty small – five so far– but our plan is to expand to perhaps a dozen bloggers. Some you will recognize; others may be less well-known to you.
The Catholic Conspiracy bloggers are faithful to the Magisterium, in love with Jesus Christ and His Church, and dedicated to bringing Him to the world. We are not a news site. We don’t have correspondents in Rome. We don’t have a secret agenda, and we don’t collaborate from a hidden base somewhere in North America. We’re not hatching plots to infiltrate centers of higher education and government (although that does sound pretty cool!). We’re not here to subvert Church teaching, or promulgate dissent, or foment division. Our mission is our tagline: Catholic bloggers conspiring to bring Christ to the world.
Please check it out – don’t mind the construction dust and moving boxes, as we’re getting familiar with the new place. A few cosmetic changes will be taking place over the next few days. Check out the roster of blogs on the “TCC Network” page – each member’s blog, unique and independent, is listed there. Over the coming weeks and months, we’ll be adding different features and new bloggers, so it’s all very exciting.
One thing you can be sure of – the only thing changing about AoftheA is the address. The content, the humor, the attitude, the faithfulness – not changing one bit. Still the same orthodox commentary on heterodox hooligans. The puppet (his name is Calamity, by the way) will still be in the sidebar.
I still have to tell Sr Patricia, although she’ll figure it out eventually. I haven’t mentioned to lose her yet.
