Joomla is a Good tool, but Wordpress does offer more.

My experience was some poor since Joomla requires to take a long road to mange easy tasks. I stop using the platform while I finding myself striving to get some critical integrations with different platforms.

Pros

Open Source System Good for blog entries Easy to install

Cons

There are not many third party integrations The community of users isn't big. Customizing any website requires a lot of work and there is few an little quality premade layouts available.

Reasons for choosing Joomla

I did choose Wordpress for many reasons. After trying long time enough Joomla, I got back into WordPress

If you want a powerful portal this is the option...

Excellent experience in my projects. The power, scalability and stability of Joomla really allowed me to create very professional portals and sites. If you have an idea in your mind of how you want your site to work, Joomla allows you to make it a reality in a very concrete way, due to the great features it has. There is also a very active community, and also a lot of documentation if you need it.

Pros

Scalability Powerful Good bookstores and active community Trajectory, prestige and reliability stable and secure Allows larger and more complex projects

Cons

It requires a certain learning curve, but it is worth it If you are not in a large-scale project, sometimes you could get a little lost among the many possibilities it offers in terms of the extensions it offers Customization can be a bit hard if you don't have experience

Reasons for choosing Joomla

Drupal had a lot of instability, little customization for people with little design knowledge, and in general I felt that I was limited when it came to creating a site or portal according to my needs. On the other hand it was unnecessarily complex in some areas of the dashboard

Reasons for switching to Joomla

I got quite frustrated doing some projects and found that I couldn't implement everything I wanted, and worse still, in some cases the site had instability and crashes with many plugins. I couldn't afford to focus or base a serious project on a platform that had these issues

A Tough CMS that Could Be Better

Joomla is yet another CMS for me though, even if it was more or less an exploration to find a better application within its category. Overall, it's a tough one and I will need a passionate mindset to dive deeper into this software.

Pros

Joomla is becoming very useful for e-commerce solutions, considering the powerful extensions that are being built for it these days. And of course, as it is an open-source application it makes it easy to customize and extend to one's need. Not to forget it's also free too.

Cons

Joomla didn't have much usability support compared to major players like WordPress and Drupal. Considering the fact that there were fewer extensions available to improve functionalities and most available ones were paid. So it wasn't a friendly application to explore then.

Reasons for choosing Joomla

Adobe wasn't extensible, so I had to look out for something that could fit my need. Secondly, Adobe Dreamweaver was proprietary, so I needed to stay clear for that moment.

Reasons for switching to Joomla

I didn't really switch in the true sense, I was just exploring to see if I could get something better than what I got with both apps, as mentioned.
