Earlier today I had the honor of attending the Catholic bloggers panel at the 2012 Catholic Media Convention in Indianapolis.
Among those that appeared on the panel: Rocco Palmo (Whispers in the Loggia), Bishop Christopher Coyne, Deacon Greg Kandra (Deacon’s Bench), Monsignor Paul Tighe and Elizabeth Scalia (The Anchoress). Each addressed the issues of Catholic blogging in the 21st century and how they play a role in it.
There are lots of good issues at play, including how they interact with traditional media, what they choose to write about and how they foster community online and in the Catholic Church. In terms of internet religious power players, it doesn’t get much bigger or better than this. You can follow my tweets on the Catholic blogger panel and now listen to the panel as well. I’m sorry that it starts just a minute or so into Elizabeth Scalia’s talk. Enjoy the panel, which is nearly an hour in length.
UPDATE: For those of you having trouble with seeing the SoundCloud, here are some individual audio files of the conference’s blogger session on my new Audioboo page. I will be updating throughout the morning.
