Dissatisfaction with WordPress

I’m used to WordPress – we build custom installs for clients and run the Nizomk blog off it, so it was a natural choice to go for a WordPress hosted blog when I decided to start blogging again. Sadly, I’m not that impressed though – same familiar admin system, but no support for the kind of widgets I want – no, only a crappy Flickr badge and no flexibility at all. The choice of themes that support widgets is very poor too. So, what are the choices – go back to blogger, or better yet , persuade one of my chums to build me a custom install… hmmm. Then I can style it to show my tipple of choice. Plan formed- now who’s arm can I twist?!
