  • I agree WordPress is anytime better than BlogSpot. Though BlogSpot is great for anyone who is just started with Blogging and want to learn without spending any dime. BlogSpot certainly is good and it allows complete customization of template code. Blogspot is good for small starter blogs..
    Personal blogs and single topic blogs can also do good on BlogSpot. When comparing with WordPress people often forget that Blogspot is free and one doesn’t have to worry about traffic spikes and hosting problems…..
