My daughter is already 3, and not trained in the least. We started at least half a year ago, but we didn't make much progress, and I had a baby in between...
I'm clueless about how to train her. I'm not very persistent about it, either. She seems like she's not interested - she likes diapers just fine.

I think you answered your own question in your posting. You state that:
A) You had a baby in between - This often can cause regression in toddlers' toilet training. You are not alone!
B) You are clueless as to how to go about it - become educated! There is the 3 day system, the naked system, The Toilet Training in Less Than a Day book and more.
C) You say that you are not very persistent about it. Kids are smart and they pick up on these things. If you show her you mean business and just do it, she may just start getting trained. If she senses that she can go back to her diaper anytime, she will. You are the mother - set an example!

i would add that 1. bribery -both long and short term- can and should be used in such a case 2. if they play with other kids their age who are toilet trained, peer pressure can be used to motivate them. 3.sometimes they're just not ready yet!! if you see them resisting it, holding it in etc, then you have to back off and wait until they're ready. otherwise your attempts can backfire. they'll train well when they're ready. as the saying goes- no one walks down the chupa in diapers..

When you decide you're ready, you'll start. Just think of the price of diapers. Also, at a certain point if you want to send her to playgroup they won't accept her if she isn't toilet trained.
There are great children's books you can read her about potty training. You can put her on the toilet/potty while preparing her to take a bath. If she agrees to sit on it without a diaper, read her stories until she "produces" and then cheer like mad. The main thing is taking off those diapers,( you can put a long t-shirt on her), and devote 2 or 3 days to it-staying home and close to the potty, rewarding for successes, ignoring failures, putting on diapers only for sleeping, until she gets the hang of it.With older kids sometimes they catch on very quick once you put your mind to it.
