    Wordpress by orders of magnitude. You want no part of joomla. That stuff is trainwreck.

    joomla does have its uses, However, wordpress tends to be simpler to start off with and wordpress tends to have many more people using it, which then means its very simple and easy to find guides, tutorials, and even videos that can teach you everything you need to know. Most people can have a site with wordpress in just a few hours.

    The downside to having something so popular is that everyone seeks to hack it. IT is important with wordpress that once your site is up and running, take a few moments to look into how to secure your site.

    My two cents on this - Joomla! has become more user-friendly since the 3.x version and creating a blog website is as easy as doing it with Wordpress.
    There are dozens of components and solutions for security implementation, which can be easily located in the official Joomla! Extension Directory on forum.joomla.org
    Best thing is that it's free, meaning you can test it and decide later if it's for you.
    Hope this is useful!

    We’ve made it! Over the past five weeks we have taken an in-depth look at the two most popular content management systems currently available. We have critically analyzed both WordPress and Joomla in a number of different departments. We have discovered the strengths and weaknesses of each system and figured out that neither one of them does everything perfectly.

    Not quite a train wreck but the learning curve for Joomla is certainly a little steeper. Also, the broader variety of themes and plug-ins for Wordpress is a significant advantage.

    WordPress is simple to use compare with Joomla admin backend. So, I preferred WordPress CMS is perfect for beginners

    I have used both and WordPress is easier for beginners to learn. There are also a lot more plugins and themes due to the sheer number of WordPress users so more software developers are targeting WordPress users with the bigger market.

    I use WordPress on almost all of my sites and one factor is it's ease of use, updates happen more often, with the core, themes and plugins. There is also a lot more help to be found on the internet for WordPress because there are so many WordPress users, so that's something to also consider.

    I will recommend WordPress as you will get extensive support from its wide community, if you stuck in between. More over there are thousands of unmatched Themes and Plugins available which will help you to grow your blog in manifolds.

    From an admin perspective, Wordpress definitely is easily. Joomla's learning curve is a bit higher.

    As a starter you should go with WordPress.

    I believe as well that WordPress for starter is better, there are serious security issue with WP but 23% of entire web is on this platform now.
    If you want to be employable, learn 1 first and become the best ever in it, and do not rely heavily on Plugins, they weigh you down, trust me.
    Then once you have a good handle of WP, go into Joomla and one E-commerce platform.
