Start with this: Joomla is a VERY good platform for any type of website, including a blog.

But you ask if Joomla is the "right CMS for you starting a blog site."

This probably isn't the best place to get an answer to that, because the crowd around here loves Joomla and has so much invested in learning it and finding work-arounds to every issue that might occur, that the sad truth is, we don't know if it's the best or the worst.


I think you'll find strong opinions on the internet in favor of WordPress as the best choice for a blogger. For me, that isn't so because I hate working with WordPress. You must realize, however, that I hate it ONLY because it isn't my familiar old Joomla, and I am forced to look up from my comfort zone and learn something new. Does that mean there's something wrong with WordPress? Not at all.

The good news for you in all this is, you can't go wrong. If you do choose Joomla, there are many resources, including this forum, to help you make your website a success. If you choose something else, they also have good resources.

Best of luck on your venture.
