Develop
Scan

Post:
Desaturate (as my scanner sometimes adds slight colour variations)
Levels
Brightness/Contrast
Shadows/Highlights
Curves
Smart Sharpen
Sometimes clone out dust if they're too visible.

Are those things in that list ok or does anything stand out as being "not allowed"?
Or you can simply post your prints. There are a number of threads related to the disadvantages of just scanning your negatives. My original intent was to do as you described but the wise folks here have shown me the errors of my ways. Now (eventually) I'll be going the full analog route;
Shoot,
Develop,
Contact Proofs,
Print (and re-print and print again and again...),
Post.
Maybe this weekend I'll be at step 3.
