Choosing CMS

Help me with choosing the right platform...
It'll be a blog, I've heard that WordPress is the best, is it true?

Personally I have used Blogger and WordPress and out of that I prefer the WordPress, but there are some exceptions and the best depends on what are you looking for.

WordPress is better if it matches the below points:
- You have a custom domain and have money to host your blog on a shared or VPS or cloud
- If you are looking for customization
- Easy to use interface

Blogger is better if it matches the below points:
- If you don't have money to host your blog.
- Not looking for many customization, just deploy the blog and start contributing on it that's it.

I was not aware of WordPress and started a blog on Blogger. Later on when realized the benefits of WordPress, then migrated from Blogger to WordPress and lost much traffic because of URL changes from Blogger to WordPress. Although there are tons of pages explaining migration from Blogger to WordPress, none of them worked for me.

I will recommend you to go for WordPress (even if you don't have money to start. At least start on wordpress.com otherwise and migrate later to self hosted WordPress hosting)
