Blogger not cutting it

I don't think this website/blog is going to last any longer than any other I've had. I'm going back to the homegrown path. I've been finally learning how to use Atop and Nevow, and I'm on the path to building a decent and usable system with it.
All the blog services I've looked into just lack something I want. Particularly, the kind of organizational system I'm looking for. I'm building my new FrogTongue with a Tag concept, where Tags are basically labels and any number of them can apply to any number of items of content. Tags can even imply that other tags are applied along with them. This will be very flexible, so I can cover a lot of different topics and keep things seperated where they need to be.
I'll be releasing FrogTongue at some point in the very near future. It won't take me long, and I don't intend to do a lot with it. Involgo and Picos keep me busy enough, at is it.
Thankfully, I'll have some help in that area, with a new coder joining the project. My best friend, actually, who is new to programming, but a very smart guy and I'll be giving him some tasks to do in Involgo, which will be very closed and controlled, so he can learn with some definate goals.
Hopefully this all goes well, and we can get Involgo out the door before the end of the year.

What about Wordpress?

I've basically settled with the fact that I'm a very hard to please person. Blogger is satisfyingly quick to toss up my thoughts. If not Blogger, I'd work on my own blogging tool again (previous attempts didn't finish) and never really accomplish any real work. I have this, I like it enough, so I won't let it bother me. But, thanks for the suggestion. I've heard good things about WordPress.
