I am planning on creating a fairly simple site where I'll basically just contain content and an opt in box. My index will be the opt-in with a newsletter/free something and then I will just have different pages of the site with content. With this in mind, would you recommend installing Wordpress and making it a blog or using an HTML editor such as kompozer? I'm fairly new at this and I'd like to know which is better for my purposes.
If Wordpress, where is somewhere I can learn the functions and all about it?
