    Word press is only best, but yet still blog spot drives people because you can earn from a totally free service. To earn from word press, you need a separate investment, but its really worth I know.

    So, there can’t be a real good comparison between these two popular blogging service. Both are good in their own ways!

        I know, WordPress has more advantages over Blogger. But, as part-time blogger, I am comfortable with Blogger. I prefer Blogger for some reasons. They are,
        1. No web hosting fee.
        2. No need to purchase a Domain name. (But, I recently bought one for my blog)
        3. No downtime

        Some people say, Blogger is not SEO friendly. But, we can overcome it with some technics.

          Sajitha I agree with your point but again one of the biggest disadvantage of BlogSpot blog is control. Google still holds the control of your log and it can delete it at any point of time.. That’s one of the biggest drawback ..
