So my blog is with Blogger, but it seems like every other book blogger on the planet is on Wordpress...Is that just me?  Does anyone know why that is? 

So should I move my blog to Wordpress?

I am on blogger, but will soon be moving to WordPress. Blogger is great and certainly easy to use, but much more limited in its customizing ability.

 

Best of luck!

Weird, to me it seems like every other book blogger is on Blogger, haha. 

I have a self hosted Wordpress, and I have found it amazingly easy to use thus far. I had been under the impression it wasn't as easy as Blogger, but I've yet to run into any troubles. Wordpress just seemed... I don't know, more professional. Which is what I was going for at the time. 

You can try out Wordpress if you want, see how it compares and if you like the feel if it. You don't need to switch, if you don't want to. I don't think anyone really judges anyone else based on their blogging platform. At least, I hope they don't, that would be kind of sad. One advantage Blogger has over Wordpress is Google Friends Connect. Man, I wish that still worked on WP *sadface*

I'd choose WordPress over Blogger every time!  I've used both the hosted WordPress.com and the self-hosted WordPress.org and both are supremely easy to use with the added advantage, particularly with the self-hosted, to actually create a complete web site and not just a blog.

haha i agree with lindie! most of the blogs I've been to are on blogger! I think they're both good, but google friend connect (on blogger) is definitely worth having!

I started out in Blogger and moved to WordPress and then to self-hosted WordPress. I think there's a larger choice of templates in WordPress and that WordPress.com has a cooler vibe than Blogger.

Blogger, I'm currently on blogger and find it easy and fun.

I've tried wordpress, but for me its hard to use.

A number of bloggers first learn on Blogger but then switch to Wordpress.  I left Blogger because it refused to let me leave web links.  Unfotunately, Wordpress has undergone a redesign that makes it more difficult for the blogger to control how their review looks on-site.  Not good.  Sigh.   Best, Joseph  http://josephsreviews.wordpress.com/

You're kidding.  I have never had a problem leaving URL's on Blogger.

I am a huge fan of WordPress.  Their plugins make them endlessly customizeable.  I love it.

Everyone I know is on Blogger.  Blogger has a place where you can give them feedback, and they are very good about fixing things.  I don't know about Wordpress as I go there seldom. 

Have to say I like blogger. Simple, easy. I need something stripped down with minimal choices because I've got no time as it is .

For me, WordPress looks more like a website, rather than just a blog. My company even switched our entire company site to WordPress.  I used Blogger for a time, when I first started out, but I didn't stick with it.  Again, WordPress is the best, as far as I can tell.
