Blogger Vs WordPress

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

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 been required to get both blogging platforms, 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 often, my questions have been answered by other members of those forms, never directly by Google Blogger Globeinform.

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 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 great tools for beginner 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. 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 are coming up with easy-to-integrate widgets that can be added to the template. However, HTML and CSS knowledge is required for adding these widgets.


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

Blogger’s interface is straightforward to navigate. With easy-to-use color/font changer tools and an easy flash template rearrangement tool, it is 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.




As mentioned in the previous paragraphs, options for WordPress are easier to find and 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 a few basic options are available for you to add to your Blogger. Many of these custom features for your Blogger account will be valuable, especially if you use a custom template. You must know HTML and CSS to add these custom features, such as a ‘read more button or any flash widgets. 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 customizations. However, if you start to become more creative and want a more in-depth blog, using WordPress will make it more difficult for you. But Blogger will make it easier to customize basic elements. WordPress is for Experts, and Blogger is for anyone, including beginners and experts.


Blogger and WordPress offer the same basic methods for making money from your blog. Basic techniques 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.


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 that any customization you want will cost you. You cannot upload a custom template for free or make any custom changes. However, Blogger is free; no matter what custom change you make, it is completely 100% free.
