WordPress vs. Blogger

When I decided to blog, I chose between WordPress andBlogger among all the other free blog hosts available.  Eventually, I chose WordPress because of the good reviews I read about it and because I wanted to migrate to wordpress.org eventually.

But I overlooked one detail for WordPress, that is, Google Adsense is not available in wordpress.com.  If I wanted to put up my Adsense, I have to migrate to wordpress.org which was my original plan as soon as I have gathered critical mass of blog readers.

This led me to explore my other choice, Blogger.  Knowing that Blogger is now owned by Google, I knew that putting Adsense in my blog would be a breeze.  While I was creating a new blog with Blogger, I found it easier to customize with other add-ins and the support is more extensive.

The advantage of wordpress for me is it is easy to write posts here and to monitor site stats.  However, the more I explore Blogger, the more it made sense for me to move in there because of overall easier blog management.

Therefore, watch out for my new and improved blog once I have set up my Blogger entries.  My new blog would be tighter in terms of content and would have a signature way of posting.

By the way, my Blogger account would not be mominthecity anymore since it is not available anymore.

Hint:  My Blogger account name would reflect the way I would post and it would showcase  mainly the majority of the referrals I got in my 2 weeks stay here in wordpress.

I will still maintain this site but edit its content so that it would really contain my original plan for it, that is a blog for moms.

Yugatech is holding a contest for bloggers and I want the 1- year free hosting and domain so I could transfer my blog to wordpress.org and be able to customize it.

All I have to do is to mention the sponsors here in my blog, Auction.PH and plogHost.  How easy could that be?

I have visited Auction.PH and  they have a wide range of available stuff there.  For those who are looking for good buys and don’t want to get out of the house, here’s an option for you.
