Over the years I have tried various software to manage the content on my personal home page. From hand edited HTML, to a bunch of my own PHP scripts, to some *nuke software, and finally to Drupal.
So why did I finally shift over to WordPress?
The answer is simple - if all you would really be doing on your site is blog … get a blogging software.
The blog module of Drupal is good, but:
You dont need all that comes along with it - stories, books, modules, block, etc.
It doesnt have all the latest blog “features” like trackback and pingback.
Common logic - with a smaller feature-set, it is easier for software to remain stable. No longer feature-bloat.
No longer updating the site software every 2 months, and more doing what you actually want - blog.
On top of that, WordPress is a highly featured packed piece of software - with multi-levelled user management, support for plugins, etc. The UI is also templateable (even though I still have to go around to customizing it here).comments powered by Disqus
