Are you confused about which is the best blogging platform in 2021? Then this article is going to be very helpful for you. Through this article, I am going to distinguish between Blogger and WordPress.

You will get to know which platform will be best for you according to your need.

If you don’t have any money for purchasing a domain name and
hosting plan for your blog then also you can create a blog after reading this article.

So without any further delay. Let’s start the comparison between Blogger and WordPress.

  1. Blogger -

Blogger is basically a platform offered by Google which does not require any money for creating a blog. All you need is an Email-id, through your Email you can create a wonderful blog for yourself.

If you create a free blog on the Blogger platform you will get a free subdomain from Blogger that will end with, but if you want to add a custom domain you can also do it.

Purchase a domain name for your blog and add it to your blogger website.

If you are a beginner in blogging then I will recommend you to go for Blogger rather than WordPress because most of the begineers struggles for budgets. So in blogger, you do not have to invest in a hosting plan which will save you lots of money.

Advantages of Blogger -

Blogger does not require any investment for a hosting plan.
It is very simple and easy to use. Even a beginner can use Blogger without any problem.
In Blogger you do not have to worry about the speed and performance of your website.

  1. WordPress

WordPress is the number 1 CMS (Content Management System) in 2021. Almost 39.5% of all websites are powered by WordPress in 2021, the percentage was 35% in 2020. From this percentage, you can get an idea about the popularity of WordPress CMS.

But if you want to build a professional WordPress website you need some investment for a domain name and hosting plan. On average, you need to invest $50 for one year to build a website in WordPress.

Advantages of WordPress -

WordPress is more advanced and it has unlimited features.
You can also create a free blog like Blogger if you create an account on
Search Engine Optimization is more convenient in WordPress.


Both Blogger and WordPress are best for their respective uses.

If you are a beginner then I will recommend you to choose Blogger. On the other hand, if you want to build a professional website go for WordPress.
