Hello Roni, I just started my own blog to track my weight loss journal. I set up my blog on blogspot but was looking at WordPress as well. I’m so new to this that I wanted to ask which of the two do you recommend. I see you write about WordPress and it seems to have more gadgets. Should I switch to WordPress whle my blog is so young? Later, I would like to add recipes and photos that I’ve taken…and I’m not sure if blogspot is the home for me… any advise?
I love and hate this question because I have used both and I do have strong opinions but that’s all they are… opinions. Both platforms have pros and cons but I lean towards WordPress. Mostly because I think it offers way more flexibility IF you are willing to learn just a bit of code. And even if you don’t want to learn there’s always some geek like me to help out. :)
Plus, if you every decide to take your blog to the next level and move to a self hosted solution the shift from WordPress.com would be a much easier import (if you stick with wordpress.)
Again, this is just my opinion. Blogger/Blogspot is super easy to use, has a large community of bloggers and offers some great templates and widgets. I’ve seen many an awesome blog hosted on BlogSpot. It comes down to the platform you feel most comfortable with. The most important factor of a successful blog is the content not the platform.
Do you guys agree? Any hard core blogger users out there?
