Blogger Vs WordPress




Quality

The quality of both WordPress and Blogger is exceptional. Each blogging platform has good up-time stats, and each blogging platform is designed to display properly in all web browsers. So again, Blogger and WordPress are both good platforms to choose whether you are starting or you are an experienced blogger. There are a few more options if you use WordPress, but I’ll explain later E-Live Net.

The quality of both blogging platforms is equal; however, if you need help or need to contact customer service, both Blogger and WordPress fail. I have needed to contact both blogging platforms before, and both services are extremely unhelpful. WordPress has a resource to contact customer service through email, but I have never received replies. Google, however, does not have any contact information, but they have user discussion forms. And oftentimes, my questions have been answered by other members of those forms, never directly by Google Blogger.

User friendly

Many people disagree on this subject, but the truth is that Blogger is more user-friendly than WordPress. WordPress has many plug-ins available to download to your blog, but each one takes a certain amount of knowledge to set up. Also, changing the template can be a challenge (unless you use a WordPress template) because many custom templates make changing color and arrangement difficult. So, unless you know in-depth HTML and CSS, it may be a challenge.

Many people dislike Blogger for different reasons, but Blogger has some great tools for beginner bloggers and expert bloggers alike. You don’t need to know much about HTML and CSS, but knowing basic coding will help you out when you need to customize the template. For example, changing the colors is easy thanks to the user-friendly color and font converter tool in Blogger. There are not many plug-ins available for Blogger; however, many developers come up with easy-to-integrate widgets that can be added to the template. However, HTML and CSS knowledge are required for adding these widgets.

Interface

The user interface of WordPress is in-depth and great for an expert blogger. However, with some learning and playing around with different tools within the WordPress user interface, you can begin to learn how to make your blog even better. In addition, knowing what each section of your account interface is used for will help you understand how to navigate and change different aspects of your blog with ease.

Blogger’s interface is straightforward to navigate. With easy-to-use color/font changer tools and with an easy flash template rearrange tool, it makes it extremely easy for any beginner to set up a blog with Blogger. Whether you use a basic Blogger template or a complete custom template, it will be easy to change the layout and colors without knowing anything about HTML or CSS.

Options

As mentioned in the previous paragraphs, options for WordPress are easier to find and easier to install with basic coding knowledge. Finding plug-ins for WordPress is super easy; there is a WordPress marketplace for plug-ins and many free downloadable plug-ins from other sites. For many free plug-ins, just Google ‘WordPress Plug-ins’.

Not as many options are available for Blogger, but you can add a few basic options to add to your Blogger blog. Many of these custom features for your Blogger account will be valuable, especially if you are using a custom template. However, to add these custom features, such as a ‘read more button or any flash widgets, you must know HTML and CSS. If not, it will make it extremely difficult to figure out how to install these custom Blogger options.

For beginner or expert

Both Blogger and WordPress are as difficult as you want to make them. You can create a basic blog with WordPress or Blogger and make some basic customization. However, if you start to become more creative and if you want to have a more in-depth blog, using WordPress will make it more difficult for you. But Blogger will make it easier to customize basic elements. Overall, WordPress is for Experts, and Blogger is for anyone includes beginners and experts.

Magnetization

Both Blogger and WordPress offer the same basic methods for making money from your blog. For example, basic methods for magnetization include text affiliate links and banner ads. But, Blogger allows you to embed AdSense on your blog, and WordPress does not. So, if you are creating a blog to make money, use Blogger.

Overall

Blogger vs. WordPress is a debate that will brew for many years. Many people swear by WordPress, and many people swear by Blogger. The one downside to using WordPress is any customization you want to make will cost you. You cannot upload a custom template for free; you cannot make any custom changes for free. However, Blogger is all free. No matter what custom change you make, it is completely 100% free.
