Heresy alert!
If you are totally non technical and your need is a simple blogging platform, I would pick neither.
If you are non technical and your need is a simple blog and must pick between the two then Joomla is way over specced for the job. It is the better platform for many reasons, just too much for the client needs.
If you want a decent website with room to do much more, then Joomla is for you.

You don't know how many times these kind of questions pisses my nerves.
People who initially operates Wordpress gets into Joomla and the get lost a lot and after a week they strart complaining and demanding that site gets a Switch of platform when all developments and customizations are not always easy to migrate. And believe me, such people are the worst ones because they don't understand that CMS mechanics are similar but not equal between platforms and if they are used to a workflow in one instead to adapt to the other they demand a Full Switch!

Nah.. that is...

I work sites that have teams of people authoring the content.
If you setup Joomla! using ACL,
If you create your templates properly,
If you create your sites structure and navigation properly,
Then you can have a CMS what it is meant for... creation of content.

My authors never have to worry about other features in the site, they never have to worry about settings and configurations, they never have to add styling and crappy code to an article.. they only need to worry about their article... the rest is taken care of already in the design phase of the site...

That is what makes j! powerful and the cms for enterprises...

Joomla! is about content creation...

From a completely non-technical point of view, I would say that novice users tend to find Wordpress a little more intuitive than Joomla. But that's not to say you would find Joomla difficult to maintain, so make your final decision based on which platform better suits your development needs.
