Blogger vs WordPress – Which one is better?
If you have been staying on the Internet for a certain length of time, then you definitely come across a lot of blogs. These blogs may become your daily digest and keep you updated with every stuff happening in the world. Maybe you read some blog consistent. You might think that starting yourself a blog may be a great asset for your business. It can help you and your customers, share information, new products or services, so that you do some free or low-cost soft advertisements. If you have got this far in the thinking process, you may have realized that there are two big ones when it comes to blogging. You can choose to use Blogger, which is owned by Google. Or, you can choose to blog with WordPress, which is an open source software. They both have advantages and disadvantages, but I can say they are both great blogging platforms.
Like everything else, Google’s Blogger has been very popuplar for setting up free blogs. In this case, it is customary to keep an online journal. Blogger has the advantage that it is very easy to use and can be very quickly established in like 3 minutes literally. Because it belongs to Google, Blogger is well integrated with the full range of Google applications. You can link your blog to your Google browser page, add it to your bloglines feed, and find all kinds of additional features to help Blogger run smoothly with lots of useful add-ons. Google has been good and the latest wave of technology now allows you to purchase your own domain name and host a blog on your own custom domain name. This is clearly a more professional look than a yourname.blogspot.com. Using custom domains can allow you to set up a more professional business blog. Most people do think that just using a free Blogspot blog can still make it look less professional and credibility than a WordPress blog.
Unless you are very into the add-ons offered by Google, WordPress is still the most popular choice for setting up a blog for your business. WordPress is an open source software and it is constantly updated. The basic code is very light, and with awesome flexibility such as installing add-ons that can help your WordPress blog to do almost anything you can imagine. There are like millions of WordPress add-ons available on the net. You can just do a search and see how amazing these add-ons are. WordPress prides itself as very easy to install and learn. You can have a blog up and running in just 5 minutes. Again if you choose to pay the domain name and web hosting for WordPress. Many hosting compaines provide super easy one click installation of the latest WordPress on your hosted custom domain.
If you are considering starting a blog to promote your business, you have to choose between Blogger and WordPress. As I have said Blogger and WordPress have its own strengths and weaknesses. Blogger is a good choice because it provides a choice for beginners to register a free subdomain on Blogger.com. However, to obtain creditability, flexibility, professional look, and add-on features, you may want to invest a bit for your custom domain and use the WordPress platform.
