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!
|Themes and customization||Blogger 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.
