Photobucket Word Press vs. Blogger

Yes, I've been neglecting you dear blog reader, family and friends. I promise to carve out some time to update by tomorrow night. Maybe this afternoon...who knows? ::snort:: I'm not ill...simply busy and working on a project.

For now, I need more input. I've been involved in a team blog that used Word Press. I've also used Blogger (um - duh! ::Snort::).

Please share with me any insight you have about how the two compare. Pros? Cons?

I am currently playing with both venues. Here is what I have learned:

Blogger is MUCH easier to add things such as God Tube videos, music, slideshows and graphics in the side bar. (Is this because I haven't worked on that part of a Word Press blog?). I've been told that you cannot add javascript to Word Press unless you pay for that feature. Is this true?

Does Word Press have the same security features that Blogger has? I'm assuming that I'm simply missing the link to the info. Blogger automatically asked me what security features I wanted.

I like the TABS at the top of many Word Press blogs, the navigation bar. I have a tutorial on how to do this on blogger...but it isn't working for me.

If I have Word Press suck up a current Blogger blog, does the blogger blog still exist or does it go away? THEN I could play with both.

Maybe, I should spring for a blog designer to make what I want and be done with it. I know for THIS blog it was much simpler to finally pay Michelle to install a template that I could then manage. Let's face it - I spent HOURS trying to design what I wanted and messed it up quite thoroughly. ::snort::

Anyway, I'd love to hear what YOU all think about using Word Press and Blogger. I'd especially like to hear from you if you've used both. Is it all a matter of personal preference? BTW don't tell me you like the "look" of Word Press because all blogs "look" different and you can find a designer to make either one "look" just right. LOL

Thanks, y'all!
