In my search for the best blog software, I am testing two of the most popular platforms: Google’s Blogger and WordPress. I have set up the same blog on both servers, to discover the pros and cons of each. (You’re reading the wordpress one. The other is here.)
Here’s what I’ve learned. Both platforms allow you to redirect a blog to a domain name (and thereby remove any “wordpress” or “blogspot” from the URL (web address). Both also allow you to include photos and videos in your posts. Here are the main differences:
WORDPRESS: the darling of programmers, and Serious Blog Writers.
BLOGGER (aka blogspot.com), incredibly popular and recently improved in a big way.
So which is better? Depends on your comfort level with programming. But ultimately, it doesn’t make much difference to your blog readers.
