Homemade Code

Tantek Çelic presents some interesting comments on hand-rolled blogging code, and promises to provide reciprocal links for other hand-rolled bloggers. (Clever viral marketing strategy.)

As I wrote to a friend who is moving from a hand-rolled blog to blogger:

I fall into the category of people who find the very act of writing code for their blog to be part of the creative / hedonic rewards of blogging. (See this entry).
Whenever I code, I discover something useful to put in my bag of tricks. Someday later it will be invaluable in solving another problem. That’s why I personally will stick with a hand-rolled blog.
