One reason to stay in Blogger community is about monetary matters. If you aim for free blogs/ sites/ online presence with good - looking pages (not just a page, but really good - looking pages), then BLOGGER is your best shot. I have tried wordpress and I didn't like their theme update rule because, primarily, I'm broke. In wordpress, you have to buy the domain first to upload a custom theme that you made or downloaded. Since I cannot afford this kind of treatment and settings, I deleted all my blogs there. I cannot stand to edit the CSS, though I could, it will take time. Blogger, on the other hand, is where you can freely manipulate the layout of your blog. This is what FREE is all about.
