Blogger Vs. Wordpress?

(posted this at my new blog “Country Elegance”)

Stop by and check out the new blog…

trying to decide if I am going to like this new blog or not!  Blogger vs. Wordpress?  That is the dilemma I am finding myself in today.  There are things I like about both, as well as some things I don’t like.  I have wanted to do a wordpress blog for a while now, but I really hated to go through the whole webhosting ordeal again unless I knew it was something that I was going to like.  So I decided to try the free version at  (they have limited themes to choose from).  It has the same functionality as downloading wp and hosting it , however on they don’t support java script, so therefore, I had to lose most of my buttons and followers widget. Not happy about that.  :(    Plus I am still tweaking the layout.   For the most part this layout gives me everything that I want, but I am not there quite yet.  

Have any of you ever made the switch from  blogger to wp?  If so, what are your thoughts? 

Guess I should  get back at it….as you can see, I still have lots to do?  Let me know what you think…. I would really appreciate your honest opinion.

Hugs and Blessings,

Hi Cindy, I never liked wordpress, I could never quite figure it out and had to ask Tammy a million times to help me ;-) I'll be sticking with blogger for a while I think, but whichever you chose to stay with, both look great :)

Hi Cindy;

I tried both and I must say I prefer Blogger over Wordpress as I found WP very aggrevating to play around with. Blogger was so much easier for me and for a free blog, you can really make it personal.

Have a blessed evening my friend. Hugs

Hi Sweetie. I've done both and I prefer the ease of Blogger. Wordpress upgraded way too often for my liking.

Off to check out your wordpress blog now!

Hugs xo

Hi Cindy! I have never used WP, but I've heard enough about it, to know that I would perfer blogger. I love your blogger blog. Maybe you should stick with it, instead of asking for headaches & hair pulling. :-) I LOVE the new red bg here! Hoping you have a blessed day! Hugs

I don't know anything about the two. I use Blogger (still don't know how to work everything) and Windows Writer Live.

I've gone back and forth about my wordpress blog and my blogger blog.

I love using blogger and it's more fun.

But, I get so many more readers at my wordpress blog, even if I haven't posted in awhile.

So, my blogger is my main blog; and I post at wordpress occassionally.
