I can’t do it! *sobs* Don’t make me do it!
Guess what? I’m still here. The migration choked pretty badly on the comments and images. Having poked around thoroughly in WordPress’s toolbox, I now have the complete two-sided story. Here are the points for Blogger.
- Blogger’s themes are more flexible. You get full CSS control and can adjust the widths and fonts and colors to whatever you want. WordPress’s themes are all bundled up, with the layout, fonts, and most of the colors fixed; without paying, the only customizations you can make are the background, header, and some theme-specific color choices. WordPress has more, but personally I think Blogger’s lesser scope of themes are quite good.
- Blogger comes with very slightly more advanced (and slick-looking) stats, tracking things like views by country and browser.
- For me, WordPress seems to lag slightly.
So it seems… I do have to think about it for a week first. Stay tuned.
