WordPress or Blogger: if we can only have best of both worlds August 1, 2006

Posted by pakman050 in Blogging.

I’ve spent the last some days looking at what wordpress has to offer in order to compare with blogger. It was my intention to leave blogger for wordpress, but I found that there are pros and cons to both. For cheapness purposes I only looked at the free stuff.

If there were a best of both words… a “wordlogger”, here is what it would do…

  Blogger WordPress
Update the Blog Design Yes No
Basic Metric Info. on Visitors No
Can implement using Google Analytics
Update Side Bar Yes
With some knowledge of basic html
With the use of WordPress templates (more constraints)
Add Multiple pages to the Blog No Yes
Organize Posts Using Categories No Yes
Upload Files No Yes
Post via Email Yes No

Other than the above 7 differences above Blogger and WordPress are pretty much alike and are both quite user friendly. I especially enjoyed the feature on WordPress that allows you to import your blog from Blogger.

As far as which one I will choose… it was a tough decision but WordPress wins! I will give up the cool graphs and metrics that I can get from Google Analytics the template modifications for the ability to have categories and file upload.
