I set up a new blog today with django-mingus and so far I'm pretty pleased. Basically, I had some missing features on my blog and I decided to take the lazy route and use this instead of building everything by scratch. It's still Django, so I can hack it up all I want, so I think I made the right choice.
Props to Kevin Fricovsky for releasing this project and to the authors of the apps it uses! It makes setting up a Django blog so much easier.
It's still using the stock basic CSS but I will probably make some changes to it eventually, when I have time.
One thing to note is that I went with Disqus for comments, so my old comments are now gone. Sorry to the few commenters I've had in the past, but I think this will be better for the future.
