Joomla doesn't support but one user.
Drupal supports lots of users, but is really complicated.
For a simple content posting thing, I'd probably go with wordpress.
There's a pile of plugins that work reasonably well. Only downside is
that it only works with mysql. But it does work well and gets things
done. You can do a blog style format, or have pages, or whatever.
I'd go with wordpress.
