tell application “NetNewsWire”
set u to (URL of selectedHeadline) & ¬
“&title=” & (title of selectedHeadline) & ¬
“&extended=” & (text 1 thru 100 of (get description of selectedHeadline)) & ¬
“…” & “&tags=” & (subject of selectedHeadline)
end tell

tell application “System Events”
open location “” & u
end tell

If you don’t want the URL to open in the browser after you save your bookmark, use open location “” & u

Remember to change YOUR_USERNAME to your actual username.
