100K req/day translates to about 1 req/sec, which you can run on anything using any technology with zero scalability problems. it can probably run on my old TI calculator ;)

even if traffic has high peaks, scalability is not your concern.

Time to market and quality of people is. If you are going to do it mostly by yourself with some help later in the game, then do it in PHP. If you are going to hire people anyway, you might get a better talent by choosing something else. A blogging platform doesn't need a node/go level of concurrency. so don't discard rails and djungo.
