Why Responsive Design
If you are going to build a new website and which to attract visitors you cannot ignore the one fact, visitors will be using tablets and smartphones as well as a computers. Today the web and mobile smart phones is how they will visit the site and if this is not displayed correctly they most likely will not return.
Responsive design is a concept where you build your website once and then format it so it can adapt to any screen size that accesses it. Designers use HTML5 and CSS to build the sites and set parameters so the content will resize itself whether the user is in vertical or horizontal viewing mode, on a tablet, desktop or smartphone or even a screen as large as a television.
You can tell if a website is responsive by shrinking in your browser window. The content should resize and group into blocks.
WordPress – Blog and Web Pages
WordPress is web software you can use to create a beautiful website or blog. Although most people when thinking of WordPress think of it primarily as a blog tool this is a very nice tool to create and manage your website. Since the data is stored on a database it is sometimes mistaken for a content management system (CMS).
WordPress makes sharing content and attracting readers to your site a breeze. Whether pushing content to social networks, ensuring that your website is provided in the optimal format to appear at the top of search results the moment you hit publish, or providing visitors the ability to subscribe to specific content sub-feeds in their favorite feed reader (or even via e-mail), WordPress is not simply a website, but rather a content-publishing platform. With a single click, you have a powerful megaphone to broadcast your message to the world.
WordPress automatically saves your work as you type so you don’t have to worry if your computer crashes or you make a mistake. Want to go back to a previous version? Not a problem. Every time you hit save, WordPress creates a snapshot that you can restore with a single click.
The internet’s everywhere, so why shouldn’t your workflow be? WordPress has mobile applications for Android, iOS, Blackberry, Nokia, Windows Phone 7, even WebOS. Wherever you are, control of your site is literally at your fingertips. Your phone not listed? No fret. You can even post to your site by e-mail.
Joomla – Content Management System

Best of all, Joomla is an open source solution that is freely available to everyone.
What is a Content Management System (CMS)?
A content management system is software that keeps track of every piece of content on your Web site, much like your local public library keeps track of books and stores them. Content can be simple text, photos, music, video, documents, or just about anything you can think of. A major advantage of using a CMS is that it requires almost no technical skill or knowledge to manage. Since the CMS manages all your content, you don’t have to.
