"I just wanted to thank everyone for all the great advise. I was leaning toward Blogger, but the thought of owning my own site, seems better. It is important to me that it is user friendly to myself, and to my followers, so self hosted Wordpress…"
"I'm the extremely rare person that switched from Wordpress to Blogger. I simultaneously blogged on both platforms(on two different topics), and found myself really dreading the experience at Wordpress. For me, Blogger is just more…"
