I was in search of a nice name for my blog and named it as “Blog Paradise”. Then i had a little confusion from which blogging site I have to start with. Finally after some comparisons I started to blog with wordpress. Till the mid 2006, blogger.com topped the competition and after that it was all wordpress.com according to Google Statistics. But i am not saying blogger.com is worse yet it is the best one for business strategy people and for those who wants to mint some money through ads. Only problem in wordpress is that we have to pay for somethings but overall it is good. We cant add custom themes as blogger and they provide a 60+ themes to blog with. The visitor stats are provided by the wordpress itself yet we dont need to add a javascript. Another important issue is that you can inport blogs from your other blogs whether they are in blogger, typepad, movabletype and livejournal. For adding galleries we have to a use picasso in blogger but here simply we have to add a tag to any post. In wordpress we can add static pages as in websites and separate your content according to your choice. The comments in blogger and be viewed or deleted while in wordpress the comment will first reach us the author and he has to decide approve or not. The wordpress has Akismet spam protection and this avoids spams but a blogger doesnt.

For personal use blog i recommend wordpress while a blogger is for commercial use. Finally i give the rating for the wordpress as one point ahead of blogger.
