Hi, Happy New Year.
Joomla is a little difficult compared with WordPress, but at the end of the day, you want to have the job done.
WordPress is easy or was easy, for even a not it person to use id. Now there are site generators that are easier than WordPress and with less maintenance time, but still, WordPress is easy to learn and maintain, with a lot of FREE and PAID support (articles, tutorials, How to do) and many plugins and themes.
From my site wplecturer.com, I give tho links with characteristics.
I prefer Joomla.
