Yet another frigging "which blog" question

I want to start blogging, but I'm not sure if any blogware / hosting site does what I want.

I want to start blogging about my many projects (old cars, guns, amature science, electronics, tools, collections...), partly to encourage me to get stuff done (and therefore have stuff to blog about). I envision it to be kind of like Mr. Jalopy's Hooptyrides, but with more pics and more detail. I'd like comments, but I don't want spam and I don't want the comments inline (so either a popup, like haloscan, or a pop down ). I want to save comments. I want to eventually have a lot of pics up. I want new posts to go to the main page, but I'd like to be able to assign them to catagories, where they would be in reverse chronalogical order (so if you click on "Harley trike" you first see the bare frame, not the finished bike). And I'd like cross catagorization, for instance, a welding catagory that would span all projects. I don't have any server space and I don't have much money, but if there was software that would effortlessly do what I want, I would pay for hosting.
Blogspot would be easiest, but I hear catagories are tough, so cross-referenced is probably impossible. Because I have so many pics, it may be nice to have thumbnails and "click on for larger". I'd also like to be able to display collapsed entries (click for more), so that pic intense entries don't bog down the loading for someone not interested in that particular subject. Also, I haven't programmed html since 1996...
