@odd @jemostrom I'm way out of date on Joomla. The beauty of WordPress is once installed a non-tech person like me can run it. Most people never have to mess with CSS, Php or directly edit themes. And it can be extended pretty painlessly with plugins. Most other blog platforms just are not as smooth as WP. The other problem is hosting support - every host pretty much has WP hosting perfected but with the other CMS's each version update is like Russian roulette.
