I have been blogging with Wordpress.com for a couple of years now. Recently I thought about creating and maintaining my own blog software. Python was my language of choice, so I considered CherryPy, Django and Flask but settled for Django because of its wonderful ORM and admin interface.
In this post I will discuss some features of this blog and possible enhancements. This code is available at my GitHub repository django_site.
Posts are organized under categories. Categories can be nested up to any level, but for now, I limit them to single level. Root categories are used to sort posts into logical topics. Posts are created under leaf categories.
A post can have multiple tags. The section on Related Posts uses these tags to determine possible relation between posts
