WordPress vs. Blogger? And Our New Blog

Hi! So here’s the sacrilegious post that’s been in the works for a little while, but that I never got around to writing until now.

WordPress versus Blogger? Which one is a better blogging platform? I’ve started a new blog — just about nail art — on Blogger. And this blog is (duh!) on WordPress.

I’ll admit, Blogger has a better interface. It’s faster to load, and you have a lot more control over what your blog looks like/what goes on it. There are a LOT of people who can follow your blog through Google Friend Connect (a feature found purely on Blogger). On the other hand, there’s no equivalent of the “Topic” reader thing on WordPress (it has a name, I guess, but I don’t know what it is). On Blogger, you can look at a certain category, but only the MOST POPULAR blogs in that category are shown, not the most recent posts. Which means it’s really, really hard to get yourself “discovered”. I think I’ll end up having to go comment/follow a LOT of people’s blogs to get myself noticed, at all.

But oh, well. I’ll just have to see how the two blogs do (and if you’re following the blog for its nail art, check out the new Blogger blog — it’s purely about nail art and there’s more detailed stuff!).

P.S. Sorry for not posting as frequently — flute, soccer, SAT prep, blah. Now I’m turning into Buddy (oh nooo! I mean, no offense, Buddy 🙂 )

EDIT: I forgot about AdSense — you can’t put ads on WordPress blogs easily, but AdSense is free and easy to manage. Although I haven’t put ads on my Blogger blog, it seems a little… arrogant?
