    Irrespective of what you say, blogger is a better than wordpress. I for instance regret moving to wordpress.
    But as you know, I followed what the masses was doing.

    On a blogger platform, one cannot be hacked compared to the rampant hacking of wordpress blogs.

    I know this post isn’t about comparing wordpress and blogger so please pardon me for my personal incitements.

      Hi Emmanuel,

      It’s of the truth that wordpress is vulnerable to hacking compare to wordpress, but notwithstanding blogger is vulnerable to deleting and chances are that for you not to recovering your wordpress blog once hacked if backed up but getting your bloggers account back when deleted it’s like air in the wind.

    I think WordPress is exactly what bloggers need to get success easier. There are a lot of solution for writing out there but the platform that wordpress presents is really stupendous. you have variety of plugins that you can do with this and a mount of big companies develop for the plugins like Google. My first choice for sure.
    thanks for your sharing.
