Im new to the community of book blogging. For several months I enjoyed rummaging online having a look at peoples blogs. Since I have published my first blog and feeling more involved in the community, I cant help thinking that I should have taken more notice to who I was hosting my blog with. Currently it is with WordPress but I have noticed they don't have a followers widget.
Do you think I should move my Blog over to Blogger, as this seems the most popular. I'm thinking that since I am new and have only recently published my very first post that it would be the best time now or should I just hold fire. I like the idea of seeing who is following me and being able to find out about them and follow their blogs back in return.
All advice from seasoned professionals or amateurs, like myself very welcome!
I love Blogger, but its also all I know :)
I recently started my book blog and I've been pleased with Blogger. The one thing I don't like is you can't reply directly to a commenter unless you add a widget (which isn't hard to do, just annoying).
There's a widget that lets you do that?! Could you point me in the right direction to find that, please?
Thanks in advance!

You can try installing Instense Debate (www.intensedebate.com) which will allow you to reply directly to comments.
Have to admit I have only used Blogger and I do like it.
I wish it did have a better comment system though as Meg said.
Even the one you can add in by widget editing isn't as good
Thanks for the replies everyone :) I definitely think its something I need to have a wee think about. Appreciate you all taking the time, helping a newbie out
I feel WordPress is vastly superior as far as usability to Blogger.
You can easily add a followers widget to WordPress! My site (BriMeetsBooks.com) runs on a self-hosted Wordpress. I have a wordpress.com account too with briwrotethis.wordpress.com and you can add a Google connect widget in the widget box.
I have blogger and I like it. here is my link to my blog http://wwwjustagirlkindleing.blogspot.com/
Hope you enjoy. The only think I am having a problem with blogger is my google friend connect followers are not showing up I think it is bloggers fault.
