If you're looking for easy, I think you're on the right track with Wordpress and themes created by a pro designer. Just a couple things to be aware of:
1. Wordpress requires constant updates for security, or else your site will be hacked. That's almost inevitably these days and it's getting harder and harder to detect.
2. Do not use any sponsored themes - those that hide links to either the creator or advertisers that they might sell to.
