Blogger vs. WordPress

blogger_wordpress

Hi lovely people!

Today is going to be my first post for the blogging tips series. I’m going to start out with “Blogger vs. WordPress” as the title says. All of you who are reading this right now are probably already blogging so that’s why I’m focusing on WordPress vs. Blogger. Remember this is all based on my experience with both WordPress and Blogger and some people might see it different.

Google blogger

Google’s blogger is the easiest way to go if you are totally new and don’t know a thing about the internet. Blogger’s newest design makes it easy to navigate and there are a lot of free things and help to be found on the internet. Blogger also provides some things as site statics, SEO and an account to comments on other people’s blog that leads right back to your blog.

WordPress

WordPress has to different ways to start a blog, a free one and a paid self-hosted one. I personally don’t like the free one, it’s hard to find help online and there are too many limits with it compared to blogger. The paid one on the other hand provides such a freedom, there are tons of help on the internet, you can get your blog to look just like you want and there are so many plugins to do all kinds of things on your blog! (which bloggers is doing with widget right now, I think)

What’s best?

So what is the best? Well, that’s really up to you! I think that WordPress self-hosted is the most professional way and will make you stand out more than with bloggers. If you are new and don’t know anything about CMS and blogging then you should choose bloggers (I also started there), but if you have been blogging a while and gained an audience I think you should think about going “pro” with a self-hosted WordPress blog that’s what I use now. If you are thinking about going “pro” just leave a comment below and I will be happy to help!

I will be making a post about how you get your blogger/blogspot to stand out just a bit more from the crowed on Friday so look out for that one. I’m also going to do a post about how to get self-hosted soon if anyone is interested in that.
