Two of the most popular ways to set up a blog and start delivering a message are blogger.com which is owned and operated by Google, and having a paid for WordPress hosted site. Both have a huge amount of flexibility when creating blog, allowing any blogger to choose a theme that suits the personality of the blog itself.

Although initially WordPress offers a fantastic start up package that will only cost a blogger the price of a domain name and hosting, in order to maximize the potential of WordPress there are a host of fees for premium services. This will however ensure the blog is granted a much more user friendly and more functional ability than by simply taking advantage of the bare minimum.

With blogger.com, there are very few limitations, except what is contained, and the service is completely free. There are no quoted storage limitations for blogger and using BlogSpot is a lot easier than using the WordPress dashboard.

During the signup process, unless a user has not already signed up for a Google account at some point in their life, they will be required to do so in order to use Blogger. For WordPress, even if you simply want a basic blog, they will attempt to push a user into a premium package by stating the problems with the basic package.

Even though it is a free service, blogger does allow a user to establish multiple blogs on their account and have them all linked together to avoid the hassle of switching from one to another to maintain multiple blogs. WordPress also offers this feature, allowing users to create and maintain many blogs or pages on one domain or site.

WordPress offers a wide variety of customizable themes, allowing a user the opportunity to have their blog site appear unique compared to the rest of the blogging world. Blogger is a bit different with its themes, with no customization available, a blog on blogger will be just that a simple blog for users to visit and enjoy.

Both Blogger and WordPress have very recognizable maintenance pages. Blogger calls its page a back-end while WordPress is a dashboard, both allow the owner to manage and maintain their blog for one central area and view their posts prior to letting them loose to the world at large.

Even though it is free across the board, blogger offers users the ability to change their theme for mobile devices from the theme of computer users. WordPress does not allow this option. In fact, a lot of customization offered by WordPress requires payment in order to gain the functionality many desire.


While WordPress seems to have limitation, when it comes to having the website actually used to generate income, WordPress wins hands down. With the ability to change from a blogging platform into an actual income generating website, WordPress supports plugins that will help users maximize their website.


Blogger on the other hand does not offer the support of plugins. In fact, some users of blogger have had their blogs removed by Google because their blog was set up as an income generation tool, definitely a consideration to be made if this is the object of a blog.

Overall, if a user chooses a paid blog supported by WordPress they are going to be satisfied with the wide variety of option available, especially if they are used to using blogger. On the other hand, a simple get the message out there blog can be done with blogger and allow a great look and feel with no money having to exchange hands.
