i need to log to the db directly and wrote a little script to do so.

provide suggestions to harden to code to turn it into a more general,
broadly reusable class.
First of all, your code is not quite pythonic and it will also open the
connection to the database *every* time you log. That can be quite
expensive and generally is not advisable. Plus it may block your code.

I suggest checking out (already existing) logging module in Python
distribution and extend the BaseHandler to implement the logging to
a database.

I highly recommend implementing pooling of connections to the DB
(ie. by simply using SqlAlchemy instead of direct MySQLDb module).

I've had a similar requiredment and made a small tool for direct
logging into databases (see:

It's origins are somewhat older than the Python 2.3 standard logging
framework, so it can be used without that (but can also be simply
integrated with it.) It even does some more than you currently need
(log rotation and remote logging).
