Good thing == bad thing

The great thing about rolling your own weblog software is you get to do it yourself.

The bad thing about rolling your own weblog software is you have to do it yourself.

I’ve been working on NetNewsWire’s weblog editor—but, I confess, my weblogs don’t support either the Blogger or MetaWeblog API. So, ironically, I can’t use my weblog editor with my own weblogs.

So now it’s time to implement at least the relevant parts of those two APIs for my own sites, so I can edit them with NetNewsWire.

The thing is, the thing that makes me a geek, is that I’m looking forward to doing this bit of programming.
