Blogger Vs. Wordpress

Which free blogging site is better, Wordpress, or Blogger? I have spent a lot of time with both. Neither website is better, there are just different factors you have to consider when picking a website to create your blog from. Another thing to consider is that Wordpress consists of two sites to create your blog from, Wordpress.org, and Wordpress.com. Personally, I think Wordpress is more complicated than Blogger, but the quality of the blogs you can make are at a draw. Most of the information is mine, but I found some on other debates.

Wordpress

Pros:

-Lots of options

-Tons of FREE templates

-Shows up more in search results

-More control over blog authors than blogger

Cons:

-If you want to use a custom domain name, you have to pay an additional amount of money on top of what you are already paying for your domain.

-You can't upload your own theme/template

-Google ads may occasionally be displayed on your blog

-Not many widgets to choose from


Blogger

Pros:

-No fees

-There is a template designer to edit the layout, fonts, and colors of your blog without knowing any HTML or CSS

-Tons of widgets to choose from that can easily be arranged and organized

-Blogger will never display ads on your blog unless you choose to monetize

Cons:

-Not very many templates to choose from, but you can download and use templates found on FREE template sites

-You can only create ten stand alone pages

On a side note, I am excited to announce that I will have a YA corner on the website Unruly Guides soon. More details soon.
