Why WordPress and Not Blogger ?
WordPress self hosted website is way more powerful and it truly gives you complete control of your website/blog. WordPress plugins and themes are one thing that makes your website/blog stands out of the crowd. I personally love WordPress and i advice WordPress platform even for the professional company website.
Complete Control of Your Website/Blog
Blogger is owned by Google and one problem a lot of bloggers has faced this in the past is that Google may delete your blog without even issuing any warning. If spammers flash your blog as spam there are high chances that you may end up losing your blog.
You have so much control over SEO of your blog/website with WordPress. This level of freedom is not offered by Blogger platform. You also have the freedom of using powerful SEO plugins that can seriously optimize your blog/website,
Plugins, Themes & Support
WordPress has amazing amount of plugins and chances are you can find plugin for almost anything you are trying to do on your blog. No code editing like that of wordpress, copy pasting stuff.
Support is par excellence on WordPress community. There are just so many people to help you. You can post any query on the community forum and someone might end up giving you custom codes to extend capability of your blog/website.
Themes are one thing that makes any website/blog stand out and as far as WordPress themes are concerned there is just no competition with blogger.
Website cum Blog or Just a Website ?
WordPress offers a choice of a static page which gives you the power of building a professional website. Whether you are a corporate or a hosting service or online education. There is just so many possibilities. You will be surprized to know how many professional websites are actually running on wordpress platform.
