When it comes to Web 2.0 there here are some of the big ones.
I think this is such a good thing. Both platforms offer free hosting and CMS for those that want to start blogging.
- WP has a much cleaner and efficient code and loads faster
- Has many different templates and plugins.
- Templates look like real websites not Social sites
- Very similar to having an actual hosted WordPress website. This makes it a great platform to graduate from when you decide that you want to continue blogging or monetize your website,
Now the disadvantages of WordPress.
- WordPress.com does not allow monetizing on their sub domains but this is not allowed on most Web 2.0’s.
- They post adds on your blog
- It is one of the harder Web s.0 platforms to initially learn.
- Can not edit CSS without upgrading to a paid account
- Plugin are only available on the paid plan
- Very simple platform to use
- It is owned by Google so it gets indexed quickly and frequently
- You can edit the CSS for free
- 29 different widgets to use to customize your appearance
- Very limited template selection – only 5 or six different templates in multiple colors
- Sites do not look like a real website- maybe one from the 1990’s
So which platform?
It is really a tough one to pick. If I were only blogging then I would go with Blogger hands down. It allows you to easily make posts add pictures and just blog. But if I wanted it to look professional and/or I was considering moving to a custom website or blog, I would go with WordPress. WordPress’s free platform will get you accustom to their CMS on hosted domains.
