With the rise in internet users, there has been a significant rise in the number of bloggers too.
Every day there are hundreds of people who are wondering on some important things on life and they decided to pen it down and put it online for the world to know.
But then, there is a bigger question than many of these philosophical questions of life – and it is purely technical, yet so simple.
The question is – which is better: WordPress, or blogger.
Now while this might sound crazy to some advanced bloggers, most bloggers would remember that they went through this phase where they were not sure which platform to choose and to build upon, we are here to help the users select the best choice based on various factors:
Ease of Use:
When we compare ease of use, the blogger based blogs take a lead as the users of blogger blogs are often in need of limited choices and their limited choices are well catered by the blogger.com where the users get to choose their theme and style instantly and easily.
When compared to wordpress it is a totally different world as wordpress users are often slightly more advanced in the world of technology and they might know how to tweak with the back-end of the website.
WordPress offers a much greater support for the slightly advanced users, especially if they can work a little with codes.
Blogger.com blogs are mostly for simpler uses and hence come with limited choices. WordPress, however comes with something totally different, which is the concept of premium themes.
Though the wordpress themes might look simple at start but then if one decides to delve deeper into the realms of premium themes, they can explore many new and better looking alternatives which are not available on most blogging platforms.
Ownership is another aspect where wordpress has a lead over Blogger, as blogger is a service which his owned by Google, and google has the right to pull down any content from your blog any time it wants to, and on top of that it can also block your access to some parts of the world or even your own login.
However these issues are not prevalent with wordpress as wordpress is a different world altogether and is not owned by a giant such as google. Users have a little more freedom to write what they desire to write on WordPress without the fear of it being pulled down.
Hence, keeping these factors in mind, we would suggest one to choose a blogging platform.
We would, in our humble opinion, suggest blogger.com for the users who have just begun, and ultimately a migration to wordpress after they understand the basics of web development and content creation. For more such information, keep following us at TheREM.
