Wordpress or Blogger?

I use both Blogger and Wordpress and I am torn which I like the best.  

I'm curious which you like best?  Below I found a comparison chart between the two.

Please post your comments and thoughts!

DashboardNew: Updated dashboard design. More features, but is unusable without JavaScript. It's an Opt-in alternative for now.The WP.com dashboard renders fast and dial-upusers can switch to the mobile interface to post an entry quickly.
Themes and customizationBlogger introduced a collection of easy-to-customize templates with mobile versions and Google Web Fonts. Earlier templates can still be edited, but without all the new features.No template editing. Style sheet editing is only available as a paid upgrade. Most of the 100+ themes let you upload a header image. Many of them have additional options.
