Blogger.com :

All what i can say about Blogger is it’s Easy to Understand, Manage and Create. Blogger is owned be Google and if you have a Gmail account then you can easily login from it and start blogging. You will receive updates notifications on your very same signed email id. The interface of Blogger.com is very good and managing multiple blogs is easy. What you will love is creating/posting the content,  Add Tags and Categories, date or schedule your post for future and/ or save it as a draft or Publish it instantly, it is a fun to post you blog post and takes seconds to go online.

Note : Blogger.com is Free and if you want to host your own domain (MyBlog.com) on Blogger than you would have to pay $10 to Blogger.com.

WordPress.com :

WordPress is the most widely used Blogging Platforms as it includes WordPress.com – Blogs hosted for Free and WordPress.org – Self Hosted Blogs.Wordpress is more functioning, more effective and attractive than Blogger.com. WordPress comes with its regular updates including plugins and themes.

My Opinion :

If you don’t know anything about Blogging or just want to have a Personal Blog or a Blog of your Interest then Blogger.com is a great Choice. But if you know about Blogging and want to try out some additional advancements like Plugins, Coding and CSS and want a Professional or Organizational Blog then WordPress.com is a great Choice.
