Blogging – Wordpress or Blogger?

There is no doubt that having a blog can make you a lot of money. Blogging is brilliant for generating traffic and building relationships with your prospects. You probably know you NEED a blog, but what blogging platform should you choose – Wordpress or Blogger?

We'll start by looking at Blogger.

Blogger is a free service owned by Google that allows you to set up a blog in literally minutes. Simple go to blogger.com, register for an account and you're ready to go.

Blogger makes it easy because you don't have to worry about uploading your blog or buying web hosting – Blogger takes care of it all, and there are a variety of professional themes to choose from too. All you need to do is post the content to it.

The big problem with it however is that your blog is never really your own. It's hosted on someone else's server – and because of this it means you're effectively controlled by Blogger's actions. If they want to shut your blog down one day then they can – just like that, and despite however much money you might have been making from it.

This is where Wordpress comes in. It's slightly more complicated to set up (you'll need your own hosting, and you'll have to upload the free Wordpress software).

With a Wordpress blog YOU own your blog. Nobody can come along and shut it down – it's all within your control.

There are other advantages of a Wordpress blog too. There are literally thousands of themes you can choose from or have us design a custom Wordpress theme for you. There are also whole host of  'widgets' you can add on to increase the functionality of your blog.

So Wordpress or Blogger?

If you're looking to set up a blog that you want to use over the long term then my advice is to choose Wordpress. Blogger has it's uses too – if you need to set something up within a few minutes, or want to learn about blogging before you try Wordpress then it can provide a good way to get started.
