New Blogging with Drupal Experience
D'Arcy notes that it has been one month since he's switched over from WordPress 2 to Drupal 4.7 and he's very happy with the change. In comparing the two applications, he writes,
I'd recommend WordPress for new bloggers, but I'd wholeheartedly recommend Drupal for people that want to take advantage of some of the more flexible content management stuff available in a higher-end app. Not a shot against WordPress at all - the two platforms serve slightly different (and complementary) roles.
I agree. But I'd also recommend Drupal over WordPress for newbie bloggers who want to learn an application that they can use for other, not-just-a-blog web projects. In the process of learning Drupal, one gains experience with a tool that has so many other applications.
