[BLOGGER vs WORDPRESS] Choosing the Best Blogging Platform

10/30/2016
Blogging is much more than just writing or posting photos. So choosing the best platform is important. A good blogging platform should be easy to use and flexible. Currently, I use Blogger for my personal blog and Wordpress for my two other websites.

The following is a comparison between Blogger and WordPress. These are the two of the major blogging platforms today.

BLOGGER FEATURES


  • It is straightforward and easy to use.
  • Easy Integration with Google Adsense.
  • URL ends with .blogspot.com, but you can transfer your own domain name
  • It has a template designer that is used to change simple things such as background, column width, fonts, and colors
  • Allows you to make HTML changes to your template through a browser interface
  • Easy Integration with Google+
  • Limited choice of design templates means it’s hard to make your site look different and unique
  • No plugins, but there is a decent number of simple gadgets that you can use to improve your sidebar and footer

WORDPRESS FEATURES


  • Enables you to have full control, flexibility, and ownership of your site
  • It has a wide range of design templates to help you create a pretty looking site without a need of design skills
  • Has a lot's of useful plugins. 
  • It allows you to make changes and add features without doing any coding 
  • It allows you to export and import your content to and from other platforms. 
  • It allows you to manage your blog and publish content through the browser-based dashboard, desktop clients for Mac and Windows, and mobile apps for Android and iOS.

SO WHAT TO CHOOSE? IT DEPENDS ON YOUR NEEDS


BLOGGER vs WORDPRESS: Choosing the Best Blogging Platform

Blogger’s most attractive feature is its cost. It is FREE and easy to use. Beginners can use the Blogger platform as a starting point. But if you plan to create a more advanced website for your business or something then WordPress is a better option.

WordPress is more flexible in terms of customization. It offers an easy-to-use interface with simple features for new users that can upgraded for advanced users. A self-hosted WordPress blog will give you a lot more control over the look, feel and content you publish on your blog. You just have to invest in purchasing a domain name and blog hosting.

Both Blogger and WordPress are good options for beginners. Choosing your blogging platform really depends on your blogging experience and the type of blog you want to start.
