You should use WordPress as a platform for your blog or website.
WordPress is a free, open-source content management system that is used by more than 37% of all websites on the whole internet. There is a vast ecosystem of products, add-ons and support around it that no other system can match. Because it has such a huge community, any security gaps are discovered fast and are fixed equally quickly.
No Commercial Page Builders
I strongly advise against using commercial page builders, such as Wix. They may have a certain appeal for beginners because they promise a lot of design flexibility without the need for any code.
The problem is that, to achieve this feat, they add a lot of code on the backend. As a result, even though you can’t see it, your content will be full of code that is specific to the particular page builder. If you ever leave that page builder to switch to another system, your new system won’t be able to handle the existing code.
Thus, page builders trap you in their proprietary system, and it is VERY difficult and expensive to change to another one. What do you do if Wix triples their prices? Answer: You pay, because you can’t really go somewhere else.
And the design flexibility WordPress offers with all its themes and plugins is entirely sufficient – even without touching any code.
WordPress Is Not Just for Blogs
Some people think that WordPress is only suitable for blogs. That is not true. While WordPress does have excellent functionality for bloggers, such as the comments and tag functionality, it is well suited for all kinds of websites, including niche sites.
I have built an online database with wheelchair-accessible hotels on WordPress. A website for a trade fair. A magazine website. And, yes, this website as well.
If you go with WordPress, you can’t go wrong.
