    Well Blogger and WordPress both are good platform for blogging, WordPress is more professional whereas blogger is more creative.
    Depends upon the work , which a person wants to showcase, I would suggest WordPress, because it is easy to customize and user friendly.

    I personally use WordPress. com but will be switching over to WordPress. Org. Although WordPress. com is super easy to use, I would like to move on to something that I have alot more control over. Where I can add pictures and designs of my own. I would certainly suggest WordPress. org

    It all depends on your level of experience. I have used both wordpress and blogspot. And I was able to successful rank in google with both. There are many popular blogs hosted on blogger like twitters blog is hosted blogger. And the very popular Google Operating System blog that talks about google news. It all depends on what you want. If you care about design then I say blogspot. If you don't have a lot of experience or don't want to spend money on hosting and a domain then Blogger.

    Come on! This is a no-brainer! WordPress is hands down better by a mile. :) I wouldn't recommend going for Blogger even if you've just started blogging because later on, you would still have to move out of blogger when you're blog starts to get some traction. Whether you like it or not, you'll have to find a better CMS and nothing beats WordPress.

    i am new and choose blogger because it's expensive when you only start learning... for some free hosting it can lose data

    I personally use Wordpress, so I am super biased. I love how you have total freedom over your site. I have used both, but am partial to Wordpress. I bought my domain, so now I have free reign!

    Blogger was built with one task in mind: blogging. And they’ve made that task pretty easy. After you take a minute or so to set up your blog, you can dive right in and write your first post.
    The biggest advantage to using WordPress over a platform like Blogger is that you truly own all the rights to your website — assuming nothing on your site is copied from someone else’s work

    I think blogger and wordpress both are same. After the new update of panda software, blogger is better than wordpress in comparison. You can choose anyone to start your buissness.

    I use a managed Wordpress website that is connected to my primary website and online store through GoDaddy. It keeps things easy and simple. One log-in to access everything all in one place.

    WordPress will provide yo with a blogging platform. But its not good for your SEO because wordpress free account comes with subdomain. It even include wordpress watermark at bottom which cannot be removed until you go paid. My suggestion is that you should host your own blog. Hosting won't cost you much. Get the domain of your choice and start blogging.

    You're right. Since wordpress is more user friendly and you wouldnt need to be moving from one place to another(blogger issh). I prefer wordpress to blogger

    It's nice actually, but you can still explore more options as well.

    Definitley Wordpress. I just started my blog and started out with both Blogger and Wordpress, but Wordpress is so much better and you can do a lot more. Blogger is super super simple and basic, but with Wordpress there are so many more ptions and different things to do. If you're still unsure I suggest you make both and see which one you like better :)
