Why not just use an existing one? There are a number of open source projects
with years of development and usage. The world does not need another CMS,
seriously.

I think you should take the advice. Unfortunately, I did not look into
the state of CMS development when I started by own CMS project couple
of months ago. Although I thought what I got so far was pretty good,
but with so many such systems out there already, there was not much
interest for anyone to look into my project. So instead of starting
your own, you are welcome to join mime at http://ztml.com. But if
you're determined to start you own, there is a lots of information
about CMS at http://www.opensourcecms.com.
