I have used a number of the django blogs out there and experimented with building them myself. I'm finding it to be a bit time consuming and would like to explore a bit of Wordpress

I had no problems following the Webfaction tutorials to get my django app mounted at the root and a Wordpress blog set up at /blog

Is there a recommended method for integrating the Wordpress blog within the django site - shared navigation, footer... I cant think of any particularly clever ways to do it. I suppose the simplest and most rudimentary method would be to build a php/html equivalent of the django header and navigation to plug into a wordpress theme? Seems a bit redundant

If you're up to the challenge, you could use Deliverance to apply a common theme to all of your apps.

If not, then building separate, matching themes for WP and Django would be the way to go.

In case you feel like giving another Django based blog a try, have a look at https://github.com/Fantomas42/django-blog-zinnia? I've been using if for some time now as part of our site created with Django-CMS and it's been working great. The developer is very helpful as well.
