It depends on what you want it for. IF you want to learn that is fine, but
then do not post it. It is your learning experience.
And what do you mean "invent my own algorithm". What is it that you hope to
learn by doing that? Certainly not cryptography. If on the other hand you
wnat noe to figure out for yourself why your algorithm is weak, and how to
break it, that could be valuable.
