Blogger VS WordPress

Sometimes creating your first blog and/or website can be a confusing process simply because there are thousands of sites and services out there that claim to provide “the best service”.  If you are looking for quick answers and need help understanding the differences between Blogger and WordPress blogging platforms, we are here to help!  In this short guide we will detail the major differences between the two services and will offer some tips/advice on how you should start your first blog.

Blogger.com:

Blogger is a free blogging service provided by Google.  The biggest benefit of blogger is that the service is free; however, free is not always better.  Although blogger is very easy to use and to get started with, I have found that the service is very limited and ultimately will affect your site’s professionalism.  Blogger is a great service for anyone who wants a short-term blog and for individuals who do not particularly care about the quality of their site’s design.   I have used Blogger before and have no problem with their service other than the fact that I had a hard time developing my site due to their limited features.

WordPress.org:

WordPress (in my opinion) is by far the best blogging & website building platform available on the internet.  WordPress is free with most WordPress hosting providers and many of the top web hosting providers will also offer 1-click installs of WordPress.  The reason I love WordPress is because of its flexibility and abundance of features!  I have been able to use WordPress to develop many popular websites and blogs.  In fact, this blog is using the WordPress software.  Perhaps the best part about WordPress is the ability to use Plugins and Themes developed by other users across the web.  WordPress has dramatically changed the web design and hosting industries (for the better).  I highly suggest paying the $3.95 a month to have a professional site/blog that uses WordPress.

Best WordPress Web Hosting Providers:

As I mentioned above, I highly suggest that you choose WordPress instead of Blogger.  There are three web hosting providers that EXCEL in WordPress hosting and are also very affordable!  I have listed the top 3 WordPress hosting providers below, each of which offer their users FREE WordPress 1-click installs.

Simply sign up for hosting with one of these companies and you can have your very own professional blog/website within minutes!

  1. Bluehost – In my opinion Bluehost is the best WordPress hosting provider because of their easy to use WordPress 1- click install.  Bluehost is one of the web’s largest hosting providers and if you use the Bluehost $3.95 promo link you can get this premium hosting for only $3.49 a month!
  2. Hostmonster – This is another great wordpress hosting provider.  And if you click on our exclusive Hostmonster link you can get hosting for only $3.95 a month!
  3. iPage – iPage is one of the fastest growing web hosts and this host also has a great 1-click WordPress install.
