This is my third installment of my journey from my old Joomla based site to the new wordpress based one. Now I know there are tens of thousands of Joomla based web sites — I’ve made some of them. And I know there are those who love Joomla — so did I. In fact, deleting my Joomla site was an emotional experience for me.

So why did I do it? Because my future does not involve me being a Joomla programmer. I needed something that I could throw together, and have my folks maintain, easily and quickly. I watched as folks with, literally, no computer experience put up great sites for their writing business. I watched literate people (we are talking about authors, here) simply doing it.

I could maintain my Joomla site, but it would take more hours a week than the average wordpress site will take a month — and those would have to be my hours as opposed to anyone in the group for wordpress.

So the bottom line issue isn’t that I don’t like Joomla — I do. But in order to focus more of my energy and time on my writing, I needed something dead simple, while at the same time fully functional. And from what I have seen, wordpress is the option.

More next time…
