No, this is not an official list. I just thought I would throw together those who I think are the top Catholic bloggers of the year. Without further interruption - the top 12 Catholic bloggers of 2009.
The Deacon's Bench
Informative and funny. Best Deacon blogger of all-time.
11 - Ed Peters - In the Light of the Law.
The only Catholic canon law blog worth reading. Ed Peters does not post often, but almost everytime he does post something it is interesting and enlightening.
10 - Carl Olson - Ignatius Insight Scoop.
Something for everyone, his best material is when he cuts loose and analyzes the writing of others.
9 - Patrick Madrid
Patrick has been writing for a long time, but he only started blogging recently. He has found his blogging voice quickly. His dry wit is always entertaining.
8 - Jennifer Fulwiler - Conversion Diary.
One of the best bloggers on the scene today. Always thinking deeply.
7 - Fr. Z - What Does the Prayer Really Say?
He has what might be described as the most rabid following of all Catholic bloggers.
6 - Fr. Dwight Longenecker - Standing on My Head.
Great source for a wide variety. Fr. Dwight shines most brightly when he discusses the Anglican/Catholic issues.
5 - Rocco Palmo - Whispers in the Loggia
The Catholic insider blog.
4 - Elizabeth Scalia - The Anchoress.
Politics, religion, and everything else you aren't supposed to talk about in a polite conversation.
3 - Mark Shea - Catholic and Enjoying It
Mark is probably the most prolific Catholic blogger. He posts on just about every topic there is.
2 - Patrick and Matthew Archbold - Creative Minority Report
Funny, irreverent, and always interesting to read.
1 - Thomas Peters - American Papist
He has become the most influential and leading blogger of the year.
