@danhoward I think it depends on what people are used to.
Personally, I have used Joomla so (relatively) much that I find WP backend kinda messy… when I look at it, even if I know where I have to go, click, and all, I always have to think about what I’m doing.
As I said before, it is surely a matter of personal preference.
And above all we shouldn’t forget that WP is a spacialized CMR for blogging, while Joomla and co. aren’t. So, if your main activity is blogging/news delivery, wordpress is the choice. It has some plugins for that, you won’t find elsewhere. And Blogger is the decent, fast and search-engine-friendly alternative.
I just wanted to point out that, for someone who plans to build a site, there are alternatives that here -not talking about you specifically, also in some other posts- seem to be forgotten.
