WordPress Vs Blogger

The Design Factor


It is the most important factor that helped WordPress to get further in this race. WP provides a slew of attractive and custom WordPress themes, which are available as free, whereas Blogger do not provide much room to splash the creativity in design.

The Functional Stature
