Hi. A newbie here. I'm Diane Umansky and though I'm a long-time nonfiction writer and editor (health mostly), I only started blogging about 6 months go. I'm really enjoying blogging--it's so addictive!--and would like to figure out how to get more readers and interact with other women who are blogging. My blog is about my three wild boys: I really look forward to meeting you all.

It took a while but Technorati finally accepted me as one of their official bloggers. Don't ask me what it all means, but they have amazing reach. They are supposed to send special instructions and are taking forever, but I did sign up. Anyway, I'm still blogging on Xanga. I put Technorati tags on all my blogs, so I don't know if they are picking it up or not. The question is whether I change from a blog about writing to a general-topic blog (like a column in a newspaper). The first is so limiting. I did decide to stop being so political because I was scaring people away! Anyway right now, I'm still at www.xanga,com/bastetmax

Thank you, Lori. That will probably work. I'll try it out later.

Thanks, Christi. I'll have to mess around with it more tomorrow.

Victoria, I don't know much about uploading you tube videos. I know blogger has the video icon for uploading something already in your files.

I wonder if you have to have an account on you tube? Then, you might have more flexibility to save a video to your own account. Otherwise, under "share" and "more options," there's a place where you can copy and paste a link into an email or whatever. It just wouldn't be the actual video.

Can someone tell me how to add video to Bloggers? I found some you tube footage I'm dying to share. Thanks!

I have a timely essayI want to write on the Letterman mess. I've already pitched it to The Huffington Post. Does anyone have connections at Double XX? Any other ideas? A bigger question: Where do we stand in terms of maintaining the rights to our work when we do a guest blog, or even write a comment in response to someone else's blog? (I wrote something that could amount to an essay in response to a Tara Parker-Pope Wellness post in the Times.) Sorry for the dumb questions, but there's no such thing as a dumb question...right? Thanks! Beth

My creative writing workshop, the Writers Support Circle, began its 4th year yesterday. We're a flesh-and-blood group, but part of our work includes reading some terrific essays about writing, writers and publishing that I post on my blog, The Writers Circle.

The posts are intended for anyone struggling to find their way through words. Check it out and please comment. I'd love to get some good conversations going.

Hi there! I'm the web editor at the British Red Cross, so I manage the content (and write for) RedCrossBlogs. We've got updates on emergencies, first aid tips, fundraising tips and more!

I'd love it if you'd check it out and let me know what you think. We also sometimes give stuff away. At the end of October, I plan to do a giveaway and I'll try to remember to let you all know about it when I've posted it.

Did you all see the movie "Julie and Julia?" After watching it I became inspired to start a new blog, "How to Get Thin and Famous (or at least published!)" I basically share what has worked for me in the publishing world and how I'm trying to get famous so I can get the word out about congenital CMV prevention. If you care to give or get advice, I hope you visit!

"@Cathi—I don't think things have changed very much. I get the impression that things are the same, that bookstores just don't want to deal. I can understand that to a certain degree. Everyone is swamped. It's easier to work with…"

"@Lisa, this is ridiculous indeed. If anything I would say that having one of CS's ISBNs is a hindrance. Frustrating that they're doing that. Sounds a little like bullying to me. Which is not surprising."
