Steve Waldman at BeliefNet continues to channel Billy Beane in his ability to aquire talent for his operation. First it was DotCommonweal’s own David Gibson. Now he has convinced veteran blogger Amy Welborn to join the roster.
As many of you know, Amy’s husband Michael Dubruiel died tragically and unexpectedly on February 3rd, so this is a time of multiple transitions for her. Amy was one of the first generation of Catholic bloggers, and even had a cyberspace presence on Catholic bulletin boards before blog technology became common. She helped me fix a small HTML problem early in my own blogging career in 2002. I hope that David and the rest of the gang at BeliefNet will give her a warm welcome.
