Around that time Nat released django-basic-blog (now a part of django-basic-apps), it offered pretty much what you need from a basic blog, but still I wanted to do something on my own.
I started a couple of half-baked attempts before I lost all interest, it was fun but I couldn't help but thinking that I was reimplementing other people's apps. That's when django-mingus appeared on my radar.
I quickly knew that this is what I intended to build in first place, so I just forked it and started customizing it.
Apart from some CSS tweaks, I was generally pleased with the feature set provided by Mingus. The only grip that I initially had is that Mingus (as Wordpress IIRC) sports both "Categories" and "Tags", I didn't quite like the overlap between them so I removed all the categories uses by tags'. I added restructuredtext support too as that's my favourite lightweight markup. I also removed the quoteme related functionality, as I didn't picture myself using it much.
This site is deployed with mod_wsgi and it was quite easy, mod_wsgi should be the blessed deployment method rather than mod_python by a mile!
