I started learning Drupal about 8 years ago when I decided to update our Parish website from a Dreamweaver Solution to something that I or others could update without having to have a proprietary program on their computer. Drupal has a rather steep learning curve but it is rather powerful and has a pretty great community of supporters that help develop it and make it better. I am saying goodbye to Drupal as I will no longer have time to develop the Parish Website and the people that they are looking to develop a new site for us plan to use WordPress for the new site. I can’t say that I blame them. WordPress has a huge market share and there are many more developers that work with WordPress and in turn the sites are usually less expensive to develop. I had switched my blog from Drupal to WordPress sometime back because I had less time and was looking for something simple to allow me to blog when I felt like it and add a couple of other pages. WordPress makes this very easy for us amateurs. I enjoyed the platform and the community but now it’s time for me to move on.
