    Keep it updated when patches and updates come out. Most security breaches on website's come through mail servers or the host company's control panel.

    Personally I do not like content management systems that much either. The only one I actually like is ModX Revolution. Wordpress is nice for authors who regularly publish content. It can be worth less than the time it takes to modify them sometimes depending on your intended project. I personally use ModX for the main site and Wordpress for my blog. There are resources out there at your disposal to quicken the development process. So why not use them? An objectionable time would probably be when it is far too much hassle.

Really what I want to know is if I plan on running the site myself is a CMS even needed? I would be the only person updating the site and at present just use a HTML editor for creating and changing content. I find this gives me great control over the layout of the site along with not having to worry about updating CMS software and modules...
    I've never, personally, created a "simple" static site .... that didn't eventually get incorporated in to a CMS at some point. Seriously, you think you don't need one. But eventually you'll want to incorporate something. You might not know what "something" is going to be just yet. But something will come up that you'll want to add or change, that will take you days and/or weeks to implement .... that would have taken you all of 10 minutes to install a free Drupal or Joomla module that would have done it all for you.

    In this day and age, there are just certain things that people have grown to "expect" from websites. People are starting to expect some means of interacting with it, or integrating in to their world .... essentially this whole other-worldly, social media-ish, Ajax-y, instant message-y, Android-y, Google-earth-y, Iphone-y world that they used to call "Web 2.0," that we now just call the web (or "internets" or whatever cutesy term you prefer). At several points along this evolution, you're going to be faced with the prospect of having to interact with this beast.

    And a good CMS will almost always give you a very quick and dirty solution of interfacing with the various parts of this environment. Thinking you don't need a CMS is a lot like thinking you don't need a mobile phone. One day your friend whips out his slick toy and starts flipping through all of his cool apps. One of his apps does his tax forms from him, while the other app reads his mind to find out what shows he likes, and tells the other app to record itl. You realize that you have needs now that you didn't have yesterday.

    Forget the phrase "There's an App for that." With something like Joomla, "There's a plugin for that."
