What's the best (not the cheapest) "3.0" blog host/platform?

I'm new to blogging, but have a lot of content ready to go for release over a few months, and I want to select a full-featured, highly configurable host/platform. Can you recommend one?

I'd like to be able to customize layout, but have nice templates to start from, have the ability to apply a lot of custom tags, have a search function, eventually have the ability to use some CGI graphics to link to certain parts of the site, have a lot of data available to with respect to traffic and comments, enable/disable/moderate commenting, with a commenting log-in process, have the ability to serve ads via Adsense, etc., etc., etc. Ideally, I'd be able to get some ethical SEO services through the same provider as well.
Long ago, I was decent with html and ran a little web host, but those days are long gone. I am a relatively quick learner but expect that there might be a steep learning curve with some of the modern tools. Am I asking too much? I am only starting my search, and some of my requirements sound like they might have to be customized, but it also seems possible that there are off-the-shelf solutions, perhaps costing more than the cheapest prices, which are going to offer a lot of what I'm looking for.
