Introduction Blogger v.s WordPress
WordPress.com and Blogger are workable free solutions, but there are some core differences in each service. WordPress.com is a commercial venture. It’s a way for the kind souls who have put time, money and a whole load of effort into the open source and free-to-download WordPress blogging engine to make some money back. They do this by making it stupidly simple to set up and maintain a blog. Conversely, Blogger is not a commercial service.
Blogger is a service owned by Google that allows anyone to start a free blog in just a few clicks. Anyone can sign-up with Blogger and start a blog using your already registered Google account. If you don’t have a Google account, then the sign-up process will take a little longer, but, either way, you can have a new blog online in a matter of minutes. With Blogger, you also have the option of creating and managing multiple blogs through one account, but you can only make blog site out of blogger but in WordPress there’s a lot more options that you can do.
WordPress was created to give bloggers a more complex blogging platform. Its simplistic style was welcoming for users who wanted their photos and written content to shine. Unlike blogger with very limited tools allowing you to perform only specific tasks on your website. The things you can do on your blogspot blog are limited, and there is no way you can extend them to meet a need like creating any type of website aside from a blog site.
With WordPress, you can use a WordPress hosting provider to host your own site. You are free to decide how long you want to run it and when you want to shut it down. You own all your data, and you control what information you share with any third party, it’s quite secure, but since it is a self hosted solution you are responsible for security and backups and the best part of it you are free to build any type of website you like.
When it comes to publishing content on your blog site or website, both options take a similar approach. However, publishing with Bloggers is more straight forward. While WordPress gives you more options for you to work well for collaborative projects.
Both Bloggers and WordPress make it easy to preview your content before you publish it. Allowing you to see how posts and pages will appear to visitors for you to check how it looks like. Once you’re happy with your blog post or page, you can publish it on the internet for all to see.
