Are you a blogger using Blogspot(Blogger) and would like to change to WordPress ? Of course there are many advantages of WordPress but a common complaint of WordPress users is that WordPress is very difficult to use. This confusion could be avoided if you could test WordPress before paying for your web host. Now you can !
Lets compare the pricing between hosting blogger and wordpress:
- Blogger is free. For a domain you could pay approx 10$ a year.
- WordPress is free. For the web host for hosting wordpress you could pay approx 5$ per month or 60$ per year + 10$ per year for domain.
This means you’ll pay an extra 60$ per year for hosting WordPress. Is this really worth it ? Why not test wordpress before using it..
What are the main advantages of WordPress over Blogger ?
- Your own server
- You own your blog. Unlike Blogger where Google owns your blog
- Control over your domain files
Considering these it may seem that WordPress is easy to use. But starting a WordPress blog itself can take hours while Blogger blog ban be made in a few minutes. Also WordPress requires web hosting which will cost you while Blogger can be used free with its sub-domain .blogspot.com
