A big WELCOME to our new blog! The team's pretty excited about it; we're going to be bringing you some of our signature segments, giving you a behind-the-scenes look at how we get our shows on the air...and lots of other cool stuff we haven't even thought of yet.

But we're really looking forward to hearing from YOU GUYS! We want your feedback. We want your story and your guest ideas–anything and everything.

Also we're rolling out our new Twitter site: (C' know you wanna follow us!)

Of course, we're still figuring out how to use all this new-fangled technology, so bear with us. Baby steps, people, baby steps!

And hey-let's build this together.

    Kyra it's nice that you have joined the blog community. I have a very important message. If we don't stop the Taliban and al Qaeda in Pakistan we will have a harder time controlling the tribulation! Pakistan's army is not fully controlled by their commanders and will not be able to stop their ambition of the taliban controlling Pakistan and it's nuclear arsenal! We are right there and capable of destroying the Taliban and al Qaeda and we must do it know before they move any further!

    Welcome to the online community. I don't have Twitter – quite honestly Twitter scares me on several levels, plus I don't really have all that interesting of a life that people would want to follow me. I'm also horrible at posting things on a daily (or several times daily) basis. I have e-mail and Facebook, so I really don't think that you're all that far behind.
    I really enjoy you on CNN. I always thought it would be cool to be a journalist – but I don't really have enough self-confidence to be in front of the camera – so kudos to you!

    So its this torture thing thats got me puzzled. Are we really to believe that waterboarding is the issue? We can not be so naiive as to believe that the rest of the world does not know the difference between TORTURE and lawful dangerous of our politicians to try to do 'the two step' on this issue. It is now the responsibility of this administration to get it right!

    Congrats on the blog! welcome to 2009 😀

    Just a suggestion, I think there should be an area or space where we can suggest story ideas or potential leads for stories on the blog from our personal/regional perspectives.

    Your news story on Afghan girl Shanaz suggested that she was married at a young age and without her consent because of Sharia Law. That is totally FALSE! Sharia laws do NOT allow marriage without a girl's consent and such marriages are considered null and void. If you wish to have any credibility, you should issue a correction on your program.

    We LOVE when you guys give us story ideas. We'll have to look into submissions via the blog. But if you're on Twitter, you can always send pitches to KyraCNN. If not, you can e-mail them:

    I watched the August 5 clip on your show of the woman taped dragging her son out of a store using a leash. I, like you was appalled by this, and suspect we are not alone.

    Yet my my children endure worse at the hands of their present primary "care" giver and no one is doing anything about it. Even a judge dismissed evidence of a concussion sustained by my daughter at the hands of her mother. what can I do.

    quien puede ayudarme?
    que puedo hacer cuando las autoridades no hacen nada?
