Madison Catholic Herald features the BC, other excellent Sconnie Catholic blogs

Whether you’re an active web surfer, or just like to keep up on modern jargon, you may be familiar with the term “blogging.”

If you look in a dictionary, a blog (short for web log) is “a website on which an individual or group of users record opinions, information, etc. on a regular basis.”

The vast electronic space of the Internet is full of blogs for celebrity news, politics, sports, and of course, religion.

There are hundreds, if not thousands, of Catholic-related blogs. They are written by a new kind of missionaries: priests, Religious, and laypeople of all ages. We talked with four of these people — a small sampling, but strong examples of Wisconsin Catholic representation in the blogosphere.

‘The Badger Catholic’

One of these blogs is “The Badger Catholic” (badgercatholic.blogspot.com). This particular blog is headquartered in La Crosse and written by Matt Korger, with sizable followings in the Milwaukee and Madison areas.

“The Badger Catholic” has been online for four years. The idea came from a blog Korger read that discussed topics affecting Catholics in Minnesota.[Ray at Stella Borealis] Korger felt the need to start one for Catholics in the Badger State.

He described his content as “a little bit of everything. Basically any news affecting Catholics in the area.”

He added, “I just saw a need for one and started at it. I guess what I like most about having a blog is that people find it useful. The other blessing has been the many fantastic Catholics I’ve met throughout the state.”

Three other great blogs listed.  I thought about doing my own post on the topic.
