Good reason, for practical reason. If we're going to use external  
tool, as we don't need to reinvent the wheel so to say, I personally  
prefer WordPress engine. It less complex and easier to use and to  
maintain. But, that's me. :)

For development reason, I still prefer fpWeb. Yes, we would reinvent  
the wheel, if we say in CMS world as there are many ready-to-use CMS  
out there, though mostly build using PHP (and mysql). But, in pascal  
world, it maybe the first CMS that's build using pascal. Besides, it  
could be a best example and showcase for FPC/Lazarus. And for the  
database, personally, I much prefer Firebird, for many reasons. But,  
again, that's me.
