I also suggest that you should draw how you want it to work and what features you want it to have. This , I believe, will make the process go faster and make it easier to know what you have to learn.

There is big competition out there so you need to have bigger, better features that are user friendly and can update automatically when your versions of your CMS updates.

I just made this [page](//bananawarrior.com/knight/beta/intro.php) for my cms, these are the things I want in the cms. I want to do this project during the holidays!

If you are looking for a CMS that isn't overkill for small sites you might want to give Perch or another lightweight CMS a try

You see, I want to make one! But I'll check those out to see how they do it.

Great start Enrique. Seems like you know what you want to be able to do with your CMS, now it's just time to hit the grind stone and start learning how to create each piece.
