In a twist on the usual “write my own blog engine before I write a blog post” story, I’m playing around with writing my own newsletter web app. This is not as insane as it sounds, even though I’m not at all sure I will actually start a newsletter or that anyone would read it. My main motivation is to learn Django really well, and this is a well-defined starter project. Besides, have you seen the prices for newsletter services?
