Egalitarian blogging for a pair?

What is the best (free or very cheap) blog platform for a dual-authored blog in which both authors have their own logins, but neither is the administrator?

I'm looking for something that is both relatively simple to use and customizable without hoops or fees. My ideal situation would be that when either of us posts to the blog, it will automatically say "posted by Cardanthian" or "posted by Friendanthian" as appropriate. Both logins should have equal power in the blog, so either A) neither one of us needs to approve the other's posts, or B) we both have to approve the other's posts. A notification when the other person posts would be nice but not mandatory. I'd also like a way to make collaborative blog posts, both from the same computer (pretty easy) and over the internet (maybe harder). This is going to be a project where uploading photos and videos is vital, so that needs to be hassle-free. Is there anything out there that fits these criteria? Is there anything else I need to be looking for in a collaborative blog?
(I have seen this question
, but as it's nearly three years old and I've read conflicting reports about Wordpress in general, I thought I'd look for new options.)
