I've used both extensively and like both of them. Each has its strengths and weaknesses and some of the difference is through the use of HTML vs CSS. Both function well for this purpose and both allow for customization of elements, including sidebars and widgets. One major difference is that there are paid functions in WordPress but not in Blogger.

I started using Blogger instead of TypePad because Blogger was free and like so many other early web products. TypePad could not keep up with changes in how things were evolving and was not worth the money you paid for it. If you need a blog that has any level of real complexity, needs formatting, and a decent amount of visual content WordPress.org type sites/blogs smoke Blogger every time. There is no comparison. You can create complex documents with all kinds of visual content that you could never do in Blogger. WordPress.com blogs are a different story and no longer have any real value for me because of changes to how their formatting is done (I'm not especially tuned into blocks). At this point, I would rather use Blogger because I can knock out a post that is focused on enhancing my main site's SEO a lot faster.

I've selected Blogger due to its simple user interface and open source feature. I can make my pages within a few minutes and add them to my website quickly, unlike other software, Iike Wix or WordPress, which is more advanced and requires pre-learning to make efficient use of them. With Blogger, I can start my blog building directly without any prior knowledge and coding.

Blogger has its niche market because it’s a free, easy-to-use blog platform that’s been around for a long time and owned by Google.

WordPress is a more sophisticated version of Blogger. It utilizes coding and more in-depth features. If you have the skills or the time to learn the skills, WordPress is a great host. But Blogger is great for information distribution and a great introduction to blogging in general.

We went with Blogger because you get the backing and up to date technology of Google since they own Blogger. We also chose Blogger because it is completely free and as a small non-profit that is very important to us. Lastly, it is easier to use than any of the other blog sites out there and lets you write longer posts than standard social media sites allow.

Blogger doesn't compare to WordPress. In my opinion, and as I've stated in previous answers, it is limited with integration, functionality, and other capabilities. It's no longer a standout in the marketplace. It was a great tool for beginners in the sphere 10 years ago, but we've evolved so much since then and Blogger hasn't. Google, its parent corporation, can do much better.

We started out using a WordPress plugin for doing blogging and found that we had to test out numerous ones due to them just plan not working or they were built very poorly that it hurt the performance of the site. The plugins we tested didn't have the ability to allow us to customize the site as much as we would like to make it fit our website and our brand.

Tumblr is very simple and seems to have more community adoption when compared to Blogger. Blogger gives you a little more control over the site when compared to Tumblr, though.
WordPress outperforms Blogger on nearly all fronts. Blogger is free, however. So, if cost savings is critical and if you aren't able to pay to host a WordPress site, pick blogger.

Blogger is free, integrates with a Google profile and is easy to manage and update. If you dont want to get too concerned with backend code, it is a great tool. Perhaps not a trendy as Wix, Medium, or WordPress, as it has not been given new templates in a long time. It is not one of Googles' front running tools. But it is reliable and very customizable.

I don't bother looking for BlogSpot's competition if I'm happy where I'm at why look elsewhere? I've built other webpages using other websites quite a while ago and I've found BlogSpot, Blogger to be the best so far.
