Default Wordpress or Blogger?

Advantage
Blogger:
-Free mode, can design the whole blog yourself.
-Can put advertisement everywhere in the blog, included banner and adsense.

Wordpress:
-More function
-With categories, can group those article together
-Akismet anti-spam which control comment spam.

Disadvantage
Blogger:
-Without categories, article will easily mess up. People hard to find article in same kind.

Wordpress:
-You cannot design the blog yourself. You can only select templates. You can change CSS if you paid them.
-You cannot put advertising banner or adsense in all ways. No such function available.

Wordpress or Blogger,
which site you think is best for your blog to hosted?

Regards,

GoodPoster

I suppose yours are some of the quality posts.

I personally would say, if I am planning to have a blog in a free server, I would not go for wordpress as blogspot is more functional and more friendly for free bloggers. And see the disadvantage!!

Do you really think, that this matters? I don't think so. When it is blog, It SHOULD be categorized.

But if I am planning to have a blog in my own paid server, I without anyother go, would choose Wordpress, they are only availing free blog package and not blogger. And more over, Wordpress is really useful and better functional for those who are using them in their own server.

yes it matters, when it comes to templates design Word press is good at it but I prefer suing blogger for it was easy and convenient to used and update. But it will depends on your purpose.

Well, every platform have their own advantages and disadvantages. But it's depend on you. I used blogger and it's easy to add some applications on this.
