Let’s check the little differences I found out between Blogger and WordPress.
The blogger platform offers you series of free templates you can chose from; you don’t really need a backup database for on this blogging platform. It allows you to make money with the Amazon and Google Adsense etc, and it does not disturb you with ads.
What you may hate about blogspot is that is offer a maximum space of 1GB unlike the 3GB offered by WordPress, it does not support FTP, and you are unable to custom design just like you can do with the WordPress blogging platform etc.
As the WordPress.org is an open source content, anybody from anywhere is able to download and get it installed on their server. No limitations to the free use, except that you have got to pay to your host.
You are able to customize the WordPress platform as you want, and it is flexible but not like the blogger platform, it is hosted on your server, and you have complete control over it. You are able to install any free or paid plugins or themes on it, the maker designed it to be search engine optimized as it is possible for you to define a Meta tag. In the less than 5min, you have already completed your installation over your server.
As sweet as the WordPress sounds, you will not get anything completely free as you need to buy a domain name and pay for hosting. For newbie who will like to run for purpose, the blogging platform looks more complicating, but you get familiar as you make use of it, it is easy to learn. Unlike the blogger, you will need to backup your database but it’s not a big deal.
