"Popular Doesn't Always Mean Best!"
If you are a blogger, we actually recommend WordPress for that task, as it does blogging well. Joomla!™ on the other hand, can be just as great a Blogging system, but it's an even better corporate site or shopping cart system. In addition for webmasters, the time I save in finding a solution to complicated bug issues in the Joomla! forum is extremely fast thanks to (PM, Private Messaging), resulting in thousands of dollars in saved time.
Looking for plug-ins on the WordPress repository can be extremely frustrating, especially if you are used to have screen grabs and demos of every plug in right on the main page. Personalty, I find the simplistic layout of WordPress.org a bit annoying.
In October 2010 is when the changing down trend for Joomla!™ searches happened. This is when Joomla!™ 1.6 was released and due to Joomla!™ not being backwards compatible with J!1.5, many people abandoned J! 1.5 for Wordpress. For simple site owners the move was a good move, as they mostly just required the WYSIWIG to post their pages. But the growing pains were especially difficult for site owners with shopping carts, as WordPress is not suitable for more complex carts.
As far as I can see WordPress will probably always be more popular due to the fact that more people require simple sites than corporate scaled sites. Just be wary on being convinced that WordPress is the best solution for your business model. In conclusion, if you are business use Joomla!™ it will pay dividends in long run!
