for experience freelancers, what has the most job opportunities traditional web dev or wordpress web dev?

I am asking this because I plan to be a freelance worker or atleast work remotely, I currently work on healthcare and it is not the best work, labor intensive and the pay is pretty bad, also emotionally draining. so I Want to transition as quickly as possible. i figured that the way to do this is to set a focus on one type of development.

Traditional Web Dev has more job opportunities since the field is broader. Wordpress is really only limited to Wordpress. So it may not be all too future proof and is more limited. Keep on going :)!
