This was somewhat of an agonizing decision. The Joomla vs WordPress debate. With all the work that is involved either way, making the right choice was important. While I am sure it will be more work initially, I chose Joomla mostly because I am convinced it can do the job and I need to learn more about how it works. I am confident that I could have used WordPress and the results would have been great but I already have a pretty good handle on that tool having done numerous sites with it. WordPress and Joomla approach site building differently and while I had a good picture in my mind of what I could accomplish with WordPress I really have no idea how I will structure the Joomla site and what the end result will look like.
