Cost-Blogger Low, WordPress High
Security-Blogger High, WordPress Low
Bandwidth-Blogger Unlimited, WordPress Limited (Depend on Hosting plan)
Rank-Both are equal in Google Eye's.( If you have doubt then Check Matt cutts Videos)
Flexibility-WordPress More Than Blogger (WordPress have More Flexibilty because it is self hosted blog and you can change many things in your site)
Control-WordPress have more control to your blog because it is self hosted,Blogger not gives you full control because they(Google) know What hackers and Exploiter can do with your site.
Theme-WordPress gives you Excellent Theme or templates for your site,With Theme and plug ins you can easily impress your visitors.


Choice is yours Now..

wordpress is highly customizable with plugins , even if you can create your suitable pugin
blogger is limited to customise as only you can customize frontend part.

But blogger has best uptime (google hosted) and price is free where in wpyou may nt get this unless a good host

i recomend start with blogger as newbie move to Wp as pro

It depends on your need.

But, I recommend WordPress is the best.

Easy to customize.
There are thousands of free and premium themes.
SEO freindly.
Secure.
Can extend feature with plugins.

For newbie Blogger and for professionals WordPress. The problem occur when u will need to shift your blog from blogger to WordPress, it's a little bit tough work. If you can handle this then just start with Blogger and then shift on WordPress later...

Blogger :
Don't want to spend money ( but you can map your domain if you have).
Good for newbies.
Lots of free themes are available.
Less flexibility.

Wordpress :
Premium ( Can't map domain with free version).
Better for professionals.
Wide support available over the internet.
Full flexibility, you can edit your theme as you want.

Wordpress is better if paid (if you have your own domain and hosting).
Blogger is better free, you can do more things than in a free wordpress blog.

I currently only have experience with Blogger and I don't really have any complaints. I might shift off to Wordpress in the future but I like the fact that I only pay for my domain and as far as "easier to monetize wordpress" I think that is incorrect, I find it easy to monetize my blogger site and it's working out fairly well. Easy to place it where ever I want (Of course, I had an account for adsense long ago, so I don't use the one they provide THROUGH Blogger)

Over all the plus sides to me for Blogger

Monetization is easy if you already had an existing Adsense account and some knowledge with scripts/html..etc

No need to spend money on hosting

It's Free!

Plenty of free themes around (if you can't customize it yourself)

Down Side:

Could use a bit more flexibility with plugins/design

A few years back I started blogging on blogspot after that my friend asked me to switch to wordpress as I bought a domain and now it's been 8 months using wordpress I feel that blogger is best for begginers and wordpress is best for professionals.

I would prefer wordpress because the independence that wordpress gives you, no other CRM can give you. Blogger is not worth competing to wordpress for sure... LONG LIVE WORDPRESS!!

Both have their own strengths. Wordpress come with millions of free themes and plugins, while Blogger belongs to google so people believe it is much easier to rank blogger blogs.

Wordpress self installed.

Even though it costs you the price of a domain name and some hosting, both of which are relatively inexpensive, it is worth it because with a self installed instance of Wordpress you are in control.

If in some time in the future self install Wordpress is not available anymore at least you can carry on until you find another blogging software. This is not so with Blogger. If Google shuts down Blogger you are screwed. There will be no way to point your readers and the search engines that you moved.

You want to create normal blog so blogger is best. But word press is best for create hard or important website with domain. have many themes free and paid.
