Back in the day I might have maintained a site by hand but I agree that
nowadays using WordPress or another CMS is preferable. Especially if time
is precious your day job isn't web dev.

That said, if I were doing a site for my high school, I'd probably not do a
domain at all & just publish a page on Facebook, Google+, or an "alum" page
on LinkedIn. Let someone else manage the infrastructure and member contact
info is updated by the members themselves. It can be a closed group
meaning you have to approve those who want to join but otherwise it's
hands-off admin. You also gain discussion capabilities, a group calendar
(on site sites .. LinkedIn retired theirs), photo sharing, and other

I manage the social media presence for the non-profit Chicago ISSA

Well, I'm not sure that's a compelling reason, but I'll let that slide.

My question is: What do you use to maintain a web site, and what do you
think about it? I guess I'm really asking about IDEs, such as Dream Weaver
and Wordpress, but I'm sure there are others in the wild.

Like I said, it's a real simple site; no order processing involved! .-)
