Catholic Spirit blogs served up on new site

| July 6, 2011 | 0 Comments

The Catholic Spirit launched a new blog site with a distinctly Minnesota flavor: CatholicHotdish.com.

Visitors to the site will find links to nine blogs covering diverse topics like the outdoors, book reviews, science and more, all from a Catholic perspective.

Catholic Spirit webmaster Craig Berry created the site to make it easier for readers to access all of The Catholic Spirit’s blogs in one place.

“We needed to rebrand our blogs,” Berry said. “‘Blogs’ or ‘Community’ doesn’t have the same zing as ‘Catholic Hotdish.’ In addition, we wanted to provide our visitors a simpler destination to find new content.”

Berry said he hopes Minnesota Catholics, especially, will visit the blog site, click the Facebook button and sign up for email updates. “That would be ‘Minnesota Nice’!” he said.

Visitors to the site also can subscribe to an RSS feed and follow Catholic Hotdish on Twitter at @catholichotdishto receive updates as soon as they are posted.
