The quality of both WordPress and Blogger is exceptional. Each blogging platform has good uptime stats and each blogging platform is designed to display correctly in all web browsers. Again, Blogger and WordPress are both good platforms to choose from, whether you’re just starting out or a seasoned blogger. There are a few more options if you use WordPress, but I’ll cover that later.

The quality of both blogging platforms is the same, however, if you need help or need to contact customer support, both Blogger and WordPress fail. I needed to contact both blogging platforms earlier, and both services are extremely useless. WordPress has a resource where you can contact customer service via email, but I’ve never gotten a response. However, Google does not have any contact information, but does have user discussion forms. And many times my questions have been answered by other members of those forms. Never directly by Google Blogger.

Easy to use

Many people disagree with this theme, but the truth is that Blogger is easier to use than WordPress. WordPress has many plugins that are available for download on your blog, but each one requires a certain amount of knowledge to set up. Also, changing the template can be challenging (unless you’re using a WordPress template) because many custom templates make it difficult to change the color and layout. So unless you know HTML and CSS in depth, it can be challenging.

Lots of people don’t like Blogger for a variety of reasons, but Blogger has some great tools for beginner bloggers and expert bloggers alike. You don’t need to know much about HTML and CSS, but knowing basic coding will help you when you need to customize the template. Changing colors is easy with Blogger’s simple color and font conversion tool.

There are not many plugins available for Blogger, however, many developers are creating easy to integrate widgets that can be added to the template. However, knowledge of HTML and CSS is required to add these widgets.


The WordPress user interface is deep and great for an expert blogger. However, with a little learning and experimenting with different tools within the WordPress user interface, you can begin to learn how to make your blog even better. Knowing what each section of your account interface is used for will help you understand how to navigate and change different aspects of your blog with ease.

Blogger’s interface is extremely easy to navigate. With easy to use color/font changing tools, and with an easy flash template rearrangement tool, it makes it extremely easy for any beginner to set up a blog with Blogger. Whether you’re using a basic Blogger template or a full custom template, it’s 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 plugins for WordPress is very easy; there is a WordPress marketplace for plugins, as well as many free downloadable plugins from other sites. For many free plugins, just search for ‘WordPress Plugins’ on Google.

There are not that many options available for Blogger, but there are some basic options available to add to your Blogger blog. Many of these custom features for your Blogger account will be invaluable, especially if you’re using a custom template. To add these custom features, like a “read more” button or any flash widget, you need to know HTML and CSS. Otherwise it will be 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 get more creative and want to have a deeper blog, using WordPress will make it more difficult for you. But Blogger will make it easy to customize basic elements. Above all, WordPress is for experts and Blogger is for anyone, including beginners and experts.


Both Blogger and WordPress offer the same basic methods for making money from your blog. Basic methods 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 blogging to make money, use Blogger.


Blogger vs WordPress is a debate that will brew for many years. Lots of people use WordPress and lots of people use Blogger. The only downside to using WordPress is that any customization you want to make will cost you. You can’t upload a custom template for free; you cannot make any custom changes for free. However, Blogger is completely free, regardless of the custom change you make; it is completely 100% free.
