Blogger: Blogger is a free services maintained and run and Google Inc which is also know as one of the first blogging platform. All the registered blog in the Google are hosted on Google server where you website is registered on subdomain.blogspot.com. it means if you have created your blog in blogger your blog will be yourblog.blogspot.com. The user can also register their own custom domain later which the take about $1o per year.

WordPress is categories into two group

WordPress.com

Under the wordpress.com your blog will be hosted by wordpress.com. It means like blogger your blog will be in wordpress web server. Your blog will be on subdomain wordpress.com. For example I want to create a blog learning blog. Then the complete URL of my blog will be learnblog.wordpress.com. WordPress offer CSS editing and custom domains only to the paid members. Therefore its almost impossible to monotorize your blog under wordpress.com because it doesn’t support javascript. Therefore you will be unable to put the ad like adsense, adbride, bidvertiser beacuse all of this is operated with javascript code. So you have only one choice Either you have to invest some money before getting started or your should just take blogging as interest or fun

WordPress.org (wordpress self hosted blog)

WordPress self hosted, the names describes that your blog will be hosted by you in the web server. WordPress is a blogging script which your can download for free.

    Blogger is great for personal blogs, but wordpress is the best for those who want to make money online, but still blogspot is a wonderful resource for those who want to make money with out investing anything.

    Google is slowly improving Blogspot and they may soon catch up with WordPress, but wordpress has build an enormous fame in professional blogging.

      I agree with you. I write this post to clear the confusion for those who are beginner to blogging.

    • Ankit INDIA Google Chrome Windows says:

      No,
      I don’t think so. It depends on the way how a blogger can use platform. I agree that with wordpress, you can have some good features, like CMS but that doesn’t mean that they are at all missing at blogger. I have seen various great sites and blogs running at blogger. Even with the help of blogger, you can design a professional blog, with a great look.

      I would simply recommend blogger, just because it is cheap and best not only for personal use, but also for professional use.

      Regards,
