basically i need a new blog.
easy to post entries, easy to play with layout, easy to tag.
self hosted, possibly not through wordpress for copyright reasons. i plan on posting blog entries dealing with download links of various forms of media.
i have an existing domain name already, so i'd need to have that redirected to this new blog.
i need the layout to be very similar to mtvlinks.net.
tabs on top, sidebar with categories, latest posts, calendar, tags, archives.
on the main page, it'll show the preview of the first few lines of each posting, but makes the user click on it in order to see the full posting.
that's it. should be fairly quick and easy for experienced programmers.
i'll pay for any extra fees necessary, i need this asap.
