    Killersites.com was started by David Siegal (of ‘Creating Killer Web Sites’ fame) back around 1996. This was effectively the first version of the site.

    In 2002-2003, I officially took over and started version 2 of killersites.com. It has gone through a lot of changes over the last 4-5 years that has resulted in a lot of web design related content … too much content to manage with html, php and jsp pages running all over the place!

    … It is time for a major shift.

    WordPress vs. Drupal and Killersites.com version 3:

    I’ve been evaluating CMS and blog tools that would help me to build and organize the new killersites.com – I’ve narrowed it down to WordPress or Drupal.

    … Actually, I’ve decided (99% sure …) to go with WordPress for a few reasons.

    Why WordPress:

    Finally, one major point is that WordPress meets our needs. We will have perhaps only 5-6 contributers and so there was no need for a more complex/robust system like Drupal.

    About Drupal:

    Drupal is powerful and has a lot going for it … but too much for us. That said, it has a few things going against it:

    If I had envisioned a much bigger project, then maybe I would have gone with Drupal.

    … In the end, you ought to pay attention to today and the near future, and not worry about what may happen two years from now.
