Blogger or WordPress – weigh in here {Tech Tuesday}

July 22, 2014

MSWBTTToday’s post is less about me giving advice, and more about getting your feedback.

So here’s the big question I’ve been pondering:

WordPress or Blogger?

My personal blog is a Blogger blog. MSWB is a WordPress blog. I have learned to navigate both by now.

If you Google the topic, you will find numerous articles on which is better, how to move your blog from one to the other, etc.

I want to hear from all of you, based on your personal experience. Some of you are on Blogger, some on WordPress, and further still, some are on Weebly, which I confess I know little to nothing about.

While we’re at it, if any of you want to weigh in on the best web hosting service, I’d love to hear your real life experiences with that, too.

I use Weebly for my portfolio, and I love it for that purpose. It’s so easy to navigate and add samples to show my work.
For my personal blog I use Wordpress. I love it, and it’s okay for my small and slowly growing blog, but it is so limited. I’ve been wondering whether or not making the switch to the paid version is worth it.

I have a blogs on both Wordpress and Tumblr and like both, actually.

I’ve used Blogger for many years, mainly because it’s free. I’ve tried Wordpress, and I bought the upgrades too, but in the end (in my opinion) it really wasn’t worth it. I love that I can design my site the way I want to with Blogger and not spend a dime, and it looks just as professional as any Wordpress website.

I’ve been on blogger for nine years. I’ve looked into changing to WordPress and for me it just doesn’t make sense. My understanding is that WP gives you more options, offers more plug ins etc. but as someone who looks at blogging as a (very low) paid hobby, not as a job, the bottom line is that I can have ads on my free blogger blog whereas if I want to have ads on a WP blog I have to pay for hosting. Considering I earn about $4.00/month, it just isn’t worth the move to WP. Maybe if I wanted to really start working on developing more readership and taking my blog to the next level, WP would be better, I don’t know.
