Since I have been with blogger since 2007 when I started this blog, I must say that if you are new then Blogger is the one you should go for. Its simple and quite easy to manage. But you must also be thinking to go for Wordpress right? So here’s a quick comparison of why to chose blogger over Wordpress.
