One more hilarious comparison:
People using Blogger mostly migrate to Wordpress after some span of time, but the vice-versa is never true!

This is a great comparison of blog sites.

I think editing of comments in Wordpress is pretty useful, it lets you respond to people's questions within their posts, in italics or bold to differentiate your responses. Saves on comment thread length and looks a lot cleaner.

sell house by owner said...

That's a pretty tough comparison. It's really hard to compare those two. They both have different and unique styles. Both have advantages and disadvantages. Maybe I'll go for Wordpress because of its advantage in multimedia settings but it's really tough to choose from those two. Both of them are great and effective. They just have different styles. Anyway, thanks for this comparison.

John R said...

as for free blog service I'll choose blogger/blogspot but for self hosted blog WP is my only choice :D

for free blog service blogspot offer you more customization than wordpress

Engagement Rings said...

I will always prefer Wordpress over blogger for my blogs. the major reason is wordpress is dynamic and is fully customizable, its been the most favourite for all the users across the world. however, i now see that blogger too is trying hard, but it will never be able to take on Wordpress.
