If you just want to get your stuff on the web and you don't want too much interactivity, I think Wordpress is the simplest way to go.
By "too much interactivity" I mean, for example, a community where members have profiles, message each other and things like that. Or highly complex sites with a lot of structured data and complex presentation. For that I might stick with EE. But for most brochure, blog or article type of sites, Wordpress is the least trouble in my opinion.
