Celebrity Blogger Week!

February 2, 2015

wordle2We're pleased to announce that Celebrity Blogger Week (or however long it takes) kicks off...tomorrow! We’ll introduce you to our fabulous group of 2015 Celebrity Bloggers -- some familiar faces and some newbies. These are the hardest working celebrities in the Lent business and we literally couldn't pull off the Madness without them.

We’ve asked all of our CBs to answer a few questions and provide a photo that somehow reflects or sheds new light upon them. While the order in which they appear may seem either calculated or predestined, we’re posting them in the order in which we received their responses. This allows you a peek behind the Purple Curtain, to see which Celebrity Bloggers are type-A overachievers and which are being chased down by the Supreme Executive Committee at this very moment.

As the pre-Lent Madness frenzy ratchets up, we hope you’ll enjoy spending some time with the men and women who will bring our 32 saints alive in the coming weeks. We think they’re all pretty amazing and not just because they work for a free mug. Just does us one small favor: please do not stalk the Celebrity Bloggers. It's one thing to recognize them in the grocery store and ask them to autograph your bag of frozen peas. It's another thing entirely to hide out with binoculars in their rhododendron on Ash Thursday. 

As an added bonus, Celebrity Blogger Week will include not just the CBs but also our Bracket Czar, Resident Foodie, Maple Anglican and sundry others who make the Lent Madness merry-go-round go...round.

But before the start of Celebrity Blogger Week, don’t forget to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter. Thanks — it’s good for our self-esteem. And if you haven't yet gotten a copy of the Saintly Scorecard or a poster-sized Bracket, your Lenten preparations are not yet complete. Order now. Jesus is standing by.

  1. "Please do not stalk the Celebrity Bloggers"?! I just bought a top-of the-line pair of binoculars
    for that very purpose!

  2. I tried to "join" LentenMadness without success. Don't understand why you would make it hard.


    1. Not sure what you mean by tried to "join." To play along, just log onto the website on the weekdays of Lent to vote. You can sign up to automatically receive e-mails each day by entering your address on the home page. Should be easy. We're not in the stumbling block business.

  3. I understand we can't stalk them but was wondering if any of them could be bought? If I have a favorite Saint-in-Waiting, what might it cost me to put her/him over the top?

  4. I've always worried about honoring the spent but holy palms when it's time to remove them from the kitchen chandelier. I'm so pleased to learn
    about Ash Thursday including your great suggestion for nourishing the rhododendron. And may we please have spaghetti leftovers on Shrove Wednesday?

  5. Last year was my first Lent Madness experience and I just loved it! Definitely hooked and will be ready for this year. So much fun!

  6. Would it be considered stalking to converse with the celebrity bloggers via email? is there an email address? Thank you so much for all that you do to help us make the Lenten time so enjoyable, interesting, and educational.

    Lord Jesus bless you and wrap His arms of love around you.

  7. When I was a little girl, I was pretty skinny, so my older brothers nicknamed me "Carol the Barrel." Do we have a volunteer? Exactly where can we find the arms of love?
