Almost done chopping this CNMC talk down to 20 minutes Bloggers' Summit, August 31

That's what made me suddenly look at the clock and realize how late it is ... with no quote of the day or art or anything!

I'm one of the seven who will be speaking at the International Bloggers’ Summit on the last day of the 2012 Catholic New Media Conference. Be sure to click through on the link to see the range of topics being covered.

My topic is — Catholic Bloggers: Are We the 1st Corinthians of the Internet?

If you don't know 1st Corinthians that may be a bit confusing. Here's a bit more:
Catholic blogs may be the only chance to "meet" a Catholic in real life for many people. What sort of example do we give them? All too often, the face of the Catholic church on the Internet is more scandalizing than inspiring. Readers dropping by may witness division and infighting, criticism of Catholic teachings, and very little love. What does this cost us as bloggers and as Christian examples to others? And can it be fixed?
There's much more, of course, but that gives the gist of the thing.

If you are there be sure to come up and say hello!


  1. Yay! Wish I was going. Maybe they'll live stream it and the timing will work out (given the seven hour time difference...or is it six? That would be a bummer if I got the timing off). Have fun!

  2. ooooo....go Julie!!! What a perfect topic for you! You will be great because you blog this very thing! You are always positive and present a "Christian" version of what being Catholic should be! I'll keep you in prayers during the conference! - Lisa
