WordPress and Blogger are the two dominant internet blogging systems. So it’s only natural that there be heated debates over which one is better.

When people want to create a blog they basically have a choice between WordPress or Blogger.  And often times because they don’t want to waste any time figuring out which one is better, they just go with the one that they found out about first or heard about somebody else using.  But as they go around looking at other blogs they start seeing and hearing about other people using the “other” blogging software and start to wonder why they choose that service. 

If your creating your blog for business purposes it’s especially essential that you understand the advantages and disadvantages between the two.

Blogger….

Advantages

• You can put Google Adsense into your blogs.
• You can promote anything that you want, any way that you want, as long as it’s not illegal or against there rules and regulations
• It’s free!

Disadvantages

• Unless you have your own blog template or know how to design one your not going to get a top notch looking blog.
• Adsense and other ads add a lot of clutter to pages and this can turn off visitors to your blog.
• Very basic software that you can’t do much with unless you have advanced blogging technical knowledge.

WordPress

Advantages

• Has great templates to choose from so even if you don’t know much about designing blog you can still make a nice looking one.
• Very User Friendly
• Excellent for use on private domains
• It’s free

Disadvantages

• Your not supposed to advertise products using wordpress, but they will allow you to advertise a few links if you don’t over do it.
• You can’t personalize your blog to much unless you have your own hosting and domain.

And the winner is…. WordPress!!

With the exception of adwords, WordPress offers everything that blogger has and more.  And if you really want to have ads on your blog you can join some ad networks.
