Hello people, I have seen that it is possible to add your blog into mylot, and I would very much like to do that. However, after following the prompts, I cannot seem to 'claim' my blog as my own. Does anyone own a blog and have added it onto mylot? Can you tell me how to make the 'claim'? I have done what they asked and added the mylot link onto my blog, but whenever I pressed "Claim now" it just doesn't work. You can find my blog on my profile, and it is my website called "The philosophical blog of a modern teenager". Can someone help me?

First you should read: the 'Add your Blog' page: http://www.mylot.com/o/bloggers.aspx?a=a . and the 'Blog Submission Guidelines': http://www.mylot.com/o/blogsubmissionguidelines.aspx . Adding a blog to the blog feed is not automatic: it needs to be approved by MyLot before you will be able to 'claim' it. (Claiming means certifying that it is actually your blog). I think that relatively new blogs and blogs with infrequent articles and updates are generally not approved as well as blogs which don't meet the criteria given in the above two pages.

Yes!!! Thank you very much for your response!!! I didn't realised that my blog had to be approved before I could claim int. But now that I know, I guess I just have to wait for it to be approved, though my blog is rather new and might not make it on my first try. But if I keep applying and have good content in it, then it should be OK. what I don't know is "automatic" RSS though. What is that??? But anyway, I just have to wait... :) Thanks for the response so much!!! :) Thanks, Nameless_

I'm not sure about "automatic RSS". RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication. There is software available which automatically submits your feeds to search engines (it can be quite time consuming doing it manually) but the feed itself, once set up, is 'automatic'. Here's a good and long description of what RSS is and why you should use it: http://www.press-feed.com/howitworks/what-is-RSS.php
