WordPress Alternatives To Build Sites, No Drupal, Joomla

Aside from Drupal and Joomla, which are the next best WordPress alternatives? Joomla and Drupal are hard to learn even with tutorials on YouTube. If they were user friendly I would be using them to make websites with WordPress being the platform for my blogs. But they are not, they are extremely difficult to understand. There are 1 click apps in some hosts cpanel, I was thinking of one of them in cpanel that I could install and use and have a few decent themes. There are several CMSs provided by Godaddy and other hosting providers but I don't have the time to install, experiment and looks for the best so I'm asking here. There must be someone here who can hep me find a WordPress alternative aside from Jomla and Drupal. Please give me a screenshot or a website I can go to for easy to use blogging platforms or website builder platforms. Or give me at least five that I ca use to build a website without code like a drag and drop builder that's not a page builder plugin for WordPress. Websites, not blogs or Tumblr or Joomla or Drupal. Thanks, appreciate it.

Clarification Request
You forgot to tell how to measure best.

In reply to: WordPress Alternatives To Build Sites, No Drupal, Joomla

Start on google and type in WordPress Alternatives.

I find the usual and you can dismiss as you go down the lists.

It's a shame you didn't get into what would be best since maybe someone would show up and tell you what would meet your needs.

You write you are running many blogs so what are you using now?

Looked and it was slow.

I clicked on the link and the page had delays as items showed up on screen.

Very odd since your first claim was "fast."
