- No Comment management system: Comment is an integral part of the successful blog. With bloggers, no management position in the dashboard comment. You only have the option to allow or disallow comments. If you want to reply to a comment, you must go to each separate article to answer. If your blog becomes popular and more visitors, comments, the response can become a torture.

- Ownership: Blogger is a Google service. It is free, reliable, and very little downtime, enough for you to build a blog page. However, you will not be the owner of the blog, Google's boss really. With WordPress, you will save your store in a web page hosting services, You're boss.

- Management : Blogger supports basic functionality to blog, share and promote. But you got a lot of restrictions when you want to upgrade or develop.
    WordPress is an open source CMS system so you can easily add new features. There are thousands of plugins for WordPress that you can use, modify, install. WordPress seems to be a good option for a service, a serious investment and long term.

- Ability to change: moving your website from Blogger to other platforms is a difficult task. You even have to face a lot of risk of data lossless, damaged structures, systems SEO. Though Blogger allows you to export data, content, templates, but the move is still extremely complex and potentially risky.
   With WordPress, you easily move anywhere. You move to a new host, new domain name, or rather the new CMS system, which remains the same or even upgraded structural features, SEO, ...

- Security: Use your Blogger platform inherits Google's own security. You do not need to worry about resource management system, blog or backup protection. With WordPress, the security guarantee is probably quite heavy and costly both time and money.

- Future: Blogger was no noticeable change for a long time, and perhaps in the future too. We can see that Google has killed many of their services, such as Google Reader, Adsense for feeds, Feedburner. The future of blogs does not depend on you, which completely depends on Google.
    WordPress is an open source software and that means the future will not depend on a company or individual. It has become a strong community of developers and users.


Depend on your purpose that chooses appropriate blog platform.
