    I’m not familiar with Blogspot but a lot of my graphic designer buddies love using WordPress, especially in terms of customization. Despite relying on an initial template, WP really gives you the opportunity to make it your own look and feel.

    for a free blog, i’d choose blogspot. it’s where mine are currently hosted (wedding and personal).

    i prefer wordpress, but hosted on a domain, not the free version. i’ll eventually go back to wordpress, once i get a domain and hosting again.

    I’ve used both.  I like Blogspot for personal blogs and WordPress for anything beyond a personal blog.  Blogspot is really easy to use if you’re not familiar with blogging and their customization options are decent, but certainly not as good as the options in WordPress.  I also like that Blogspot is tied into Google services because I can pull pictures and other items from my Google account really easily.  For example, I can take a picture of a new project in my backyard with my Android phone (which will automatically be added to my Google image cloud), pull up Blogspot, and immediately be able to use the image in a post.

    I’ve been blogging since 2007 and I used Blogspot up until this year!  It’s very user-friendly and easy to customize yourself.  I dabbled in using the free WordPress service but found it to be much harder to customize.

    However, I switched over to WordPress this year because it’s much more professional and I wanted to take my blogging to the next level – I also got it professionally redesigned.  I’m very happy with the results and technologically speaking, the options available to you really are more professional.

    So it depends on where you want to go with blogging, I think 🙂

    I’ve used both.I find wordpress to be much more social the way it’s designed. I think their search functions make it easier for other people to find your blog. I also like how they have facebook like buttons built right in.

    If you’re looking to do strictly a free blog, Blogger is much more customizable than the free version of WordPress. I also think that Blogger is more user-friendly in terms of adding widgets and the like to your blog to customize it. To do *too* much customizing in WordPress, you have to pay extra.

    WordPress is more “professional” but for your uses — blogging, and especially crafty/visual blogging — I’d think Blogger is a good place to start.

    WordPress is really great, if you know what you’re doing. My SO has a Master’s in CS, so he was able to do wonders to my blog in terms of customization. It offers a lot that Blogger doesn’t. But, if you don’t know how to use html and do other things like that (like me), then Blogger is a better bet – it’s a lot more user-friendly for the web design novice!

    I lurve WordPress. I have a cooking blog there. Haven’t written anything for a while (ironically my last entry was about saving money on weddings haha), but I love it. The interface is easy to use/navigate, and you can do a lot of customization. Plus I think it just has a more sleek look to it, but that’s my opinion. I have never used blogspot, so I can’t really comment on that.

    Good luck, though! 😀
