Blogspot or Wordpress?

I'm finally planning my blog and trying to decide which I want to use. Which do you prefer and why??

It depends on what you want. I am switching to wordpress because I have outgrown my blogger blog. I am taking my URL with me and what not but I blog professionally so I need to.

If you're going to blog professionally then I'd use WordPress, but if it's just for fun then go with Blogger

Re: Blogspot or Wordpress?

I have had a family blog with Blogger for 7+ years now. I haven't always been happy with it, and I am terrified that one day I will just go to it and blogger will say something like "you can't go here from an Apple product" but I am happy other then that. I do have a back up PC just in case. Apple and Google are in a war if you didn't know.

Blogger I think is on par for my needs with wordpress and at this point and 1226 posts, 1120 comments, I am a bit scared to move to wordpress.

Good luck with your decision!

wordpress. I know A LOT of people and I myself have had issues with blogger just removing our blog because of their own stupid reasons. I trust them about as far as I can throw them. I had a blogger blog with 300+ followers and they just removed it! I was PEEVED. NEVER again will I deal with them. I won't even follow a blog that is on blogger im still so peeved about it.

If you want to go the free route go for blogger.com (blogspot).

If you want to have a professional blog get a .com domain and setup a wordpress script on it and it will make your life much easier plus it'll look much professional.

Re: Blogspot or Wordpress?

Wordpress. I started off on Blogger and now I wish I hadn't. I am planning on making my move to Wordpress while my blog is still young, but I am nervous about making the move. At least I don't have many posts or a url yet so it should be fairly simple. Save yourself the headache and worry and just start with Wordpress!

I went with blogger, and have a URL and so far so good. I've used Wordpress before and I find blogger to be much more user friendly.
