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.
