New perma: Emily Jensen!

Great news, everyone!

We at BCC proudly welcome Emily Jensen — journalist and web author extraordinaire, and all-around great person — as a full-time contributor. This is how EmJen introduces herself:

With a bit of angst (since she loves BCC, but also pretty much loves every other Mormon blog out there) Emily W. Jensen joins BCC (as part of a new position at Dialogue, more info forthcoming). So she freely admits she’ll be serving two masters as she’ll continue wandering the Bloggernacle and beyond looking for incredible posts for the Deseret News while sneaking in through the attic window of By Common Consent to write posts that strike her fancy.

If you met her in person, you’d see that her energy matches her enthusiasm and that her mouth loves to run away with her, with or without her mind. Besides her work at the Deseret News, she loves moderating the Round Table of beautiful and strong Bloggernacle women in discussing important issues surrounding Mormon women. Oh, and did we mention that she also loves mommy-ing her five mostly-delightful children and crowing about the achievements of her hot historian husband?

Most notably for this intro, in her almost 4-year tenure covering the Bloggernacle she hasn’t met any Mormon blogger she hasn’t liked.

In short, we’re stoked. Emily is good people.

Take that, JI.

  1. Welcome, Emily!

  2. Yeah, is it bad that I pretty much want everyone who wants to comment here to instead read the blogs below (and soon to be above me) and comment there? I just can’t help but point out other amazing blogs…

  3. Yes, it’s bad!

  4. Yea! I’m so excited. Welcome Em!

  5. Hooray!

  6. Welcome!

  7. A big day in the Jensen household!

  8. Great to have you here, Emily.

  9. That Christmas card making the rounds of Facebook showing an entire family concentrating on their electronic devices instead of facing the camera may be a foreshadowing of the Jensen home!

  10. I like Emily! She’s a friend to Linescratchers.

    Having been fortunate enough to stay in the Jensen household, I can assure you that this is already how it is. :)

  12. Hooray for EmJen! Welcome aboard!

  13. Glad you decided to slum it here with us, Emily.

    I think you know how much I admire your work, and it’s good to have one more humble person to balance . . . never mind.

  14. Welcome Emily. I really really really really hope you’ll accept my Facebook request.

  15. Awesome. A win for both Emily and BCC.

  16. I guess I don’t hate Rob. Emily’s greatness will give us POWER! Yay!

  17. Kevin Barney says:

    Yay! Welcome aboard, Emily.

    (I named my own daughter Emily. The name comes from the ancient Roman clan the Aemilii.)

  18. Welcome, EmJen, and I think publicizing other blogs as you have in the past is a great idea. HB is a big fan of your whole family.

  19. Congrats, EmJen!

  20. Researcher says:

    This is certainly a historical day for the Bloggernacle. Congratulations, everyone!

  21. Wow! This is great! Congrats to you, Emily, and to BCC for being wise enough to bring you on board. (And I’m intrigued to hear more about the Dialogue connection.)

  22. lucky ducks!

  23. I see a lot more time at BCC in my future. Congrats all around!

  24. It’s like when Bishop Edgley devoted the first third of a General Conference talk to reading us a Robert Kirby column. All Kirby’s crediibility as a cynical contrarian blown away, which maybe is why he now writes like some happy grandpa. With BCC and Dialogue sharing a writer with the Deseret News, well, future sniping at Meridian columns may take more the form of a friendly rivalry than a call to repentance.

    Less notably, Emily Jensen has never met me.

  25. Awesome!!

  26. I am also intrigued by this Dialogue thing.

    I worked with Emily…back in 1998…on the Ricks College Scroll.

    In the festive spirit of EmJen and Christmas, can I be released from always being sent straight to moderation?

  27. Looks like everyone’s adding Jensens these days. JI has Rob. BCC has EmJen. And we just added Marlin K. as a perma at T&S.

  28. Yay Emily Jensen. She is a goddess in the Mormon world and I worship her. :)

  29. “With BCC and Dialogue sharing a writer with the Deseret News, well, future sniping at Meridian columns may take more the form of a friendly rivalry than a call to repentance.”

    Yeah. Almost like we all belong to the same church or something. Weird.

  30. “And we just added Marlin K. as a perma at T&S.”

    I call that B&S, Kaimi.

  31. “Yeah. Almost like we all belong to the same church or something. Weird.”

    See. It’s started already. Better make room on your walls for some Greg Olsen prints to look at while humming Janice Kapp Perry.
