Which is the Best Blogging Platform Among Blogger & WordPress?

There were both positives and negatives for the two blogging platforms. If you don’t like to invest more on your blog unless you get some, go with Blogger blog or else choose WordPress blog. It all depends on you to choose the best blogging platform that suits your requirement.

My personal advice: Initially, go with Blogger.com with a custom domain and once you gain enough knowledge about Blogging + some money from your blog, switch from Blogger to WordPress by purchasing WordPress hosting with your income. It’s what most bloggers do.
