The names Blogger and WordPress, undoubtedly denote the top blogging platforms out there on the web for one’s use. Blogger, on one hand, is provided by the internet giant Google. While on the other hand, WordPress is a free, open source blogging platform. The Blogger service by Google allows users round the world, with a Google account, to easily create their own blogs within seconds. While on the other hand, WordPress powered blogs need hosting.
With these two blogging platforms having their own pros and cons, it becomes really a hard job to choose one for blogging. Personally I have come across many of my friends asking me for the better blogging platform to choose. If you are newbie to blogging, Google’s Blogger is the option for you. If you are a person with less tech knowledge, Google’s Blogger is the option for you. Herein, as the title says, I highlight four main reasons why you should choose Blogger as your blogging platform.

One thing that I really love with Blogger is that, Blogger blogs require no hosting. The hosting process is all in the hands of Google and Google will take care of the charges. Also, with Google’s hosting, blogs powered Google’s Blogger are unimaginably fast. If you are using WordPress, the speed of your site depends upon your hosting plans. If you are using a free hosting site, your site is sure to be very slow and also crash at times.
While Blogger provides a great deal of hosting, it becomes really a ton of fun blogging with Google’s Blogger as the blogging platform. Also, one ought to follow the Blogger’s guidelines in order to keep one’s blog safe. If you are prone to breaking rules, Google is sure to kick your blog out of the blogging niche.
