    Wordpress is the best for now.. you can try joomla.. but in my opinion its not so good for newbs..
    e107 is similiar as joomla but lacks proper support & plugins..
    so maybe you can do just plain html site & code it as you want...

    i was digging around and no blogging source is competitive with WP as far as plugins go.

    As far as writing my sites in plain html and css it would be difficult to maintain because i would have to keep track of all my site pages. Which i don't want to do.. might just stick with Wordpress.. i was trying to expand the CMS around my domains so i could have different CMS's pointing to eachother.

    Best to stick with what you know best. I was thinking just like you before and was ready to even learn more about drupal joomla, but than thought to myself that staying with wordpress and expanding my knowledge on it would be much more efficient and less stress.

    Stick with WordPress.

    One thing I will suggest though is to learn PHP and how to build / modify your own plugins.

    I've been learning PHP all year and the stuff I can do with Press now is unreal; totally worth it not to mention being able to create your own little scripts to automate work.

    There are may perfectly serviceable CMS packages like Joomla or Serendipity that I have used in the past but I have to agree with the others that WP has a massive advantage in that so much independent development is done for it. Unless you have a compelling reason not to use WP, I would tend to stick with it.

    I would also agree that learning PHP gives you a major edge for customizing sites and bot work.

    Just my two cents worth.

    There are many other CMS that are equally powerful as word press. I do recommend word press than others though..

    If your needs are basic, wordpress would be best to stick with. But again, you may want to give joomla, drupal and the like a try as well but those tend to be more appropriate for an extensive cms requirement.

    For content focused site,wordpress rules. If you want to make more robust for DB heavy sites,you can consider Drupal .
