I've used all the above and for what you are doing I would say stick with Wordpress.

Wow I just checked out Square Space and it has a freakin' dynamic theme editor. I've always wonder why blog systems didn't have built in WYSIWYGs. Great Idea, I have to check this one out. Thanks man.

EE is amazing. I have just switched from using wordpress to EE. I will never go back. EE has most of the functionality you need a plugin for Wordpress built right into it. It is so compartmentalized and easy to use. Imagine "custom fields" on steroids if you will. Download the core and try it out. Just as easy to install as Wordpress.

WordPress is what I would recommend ou use. It is the easiest to get your head around, the community is great, and there is a lot of documentation out there. Nothing else has proven to be any better. All of them come with their downsides for sure, but they are all marginal... sorta. I am very happy with WordPress. It scales very well, and with each release it gets better and better. That is what I would use for the long haul.

I might add: if you need any kind of support, feel free to contact me - the mail in the comment field is correct. I'm quite skilled with WP, if you'll choose it. ;) And since I've a little project 'on hold' about a WP plugin to ease theme development, you could give me good advices if I ever got the time to work on it. :)

Go with EE. I haven't used it for a production site yet, but I've toyed around with it as much as I have MT, and EE just makes more sense, and out of the box it functions as more than a blog, and more like a real CMS. The only cavet is that if you're not running a blog, or running a separate section of a site not as a blog, the CMS still refers to the content as a blog. The custom fields option is really nice too. I've used Wordpress on a few sites, and while it's nice, I always have to hack around the templates with PHP to get it to work the way I want. I'm knowledgeable with PHP, but sometimes I tell myself "I shouldn't have to be doing this to get the desired functionality I want... Wordpress should be smarter than this."

I'm feel like I'm a little late to this party (or late in blog terms), but its been a great thread; and I am definitely sympathetic, Antonio, when it comes to looking at blog software from a designer perspective. I'm using Wordpress for my non-design work ( and while I found it easy to bang away at the CSS and some of the PHP, I am not looking forward to much structural change. WHICH IS TO SAY: keep us posted as you're creating your own theme. I'm thinking of doing the same and would love to hear your take on it as a designer. AND: yeay on your blog. great stuff.
