    Great post, Herbert! These were the very reasons why I decided to use WordPress instead of the other blogging platforms that are available. Not to mention that it’s so easy to install, especially if your hosting site is using cPanel.

    Nice post.
    But though WordPress is the best platform, we should not ignore Blogger completely. It gives a chance to new bloggers, who don’t know anything about blogging, to learn something without any monetary investment.
    But then as I said WordPress is the best. I started with Blogger and till today I am on Blogger, now that I know many aspects of blogging, it’s now time to go to the next level. Soon I am migrating to WordPress.
    Thanks for such a lovely post :D

    WordPress using your own domain, not the free wordpress.com is absolutely the best out there. The plugins alone is already a top notch.

    Great article! WordPress is indeed on of the most reliable web publishing platforms out there! What I love about it the most is the customizing flexibility that it offers for you and your websites. And every home-user can take a shot at it: you only pay a hosting service, make a simple WP quick install, use a theme generator, like Lubith, add some plugins and some great content and that it all! A brand cannot be built on more easier terms than these!

    I have been working with WordPress & I feel comfortable.

    Even if you are new to WordPress you can easily understand it’s operations as there is Huge community for supporting.

    One more thing is SEO perspective.It’s very good.

    Blogger is also a good platform, only thing is blogging with blogger is like staying in a rented house & you are not allowed to do some activities easily.

    I agree that WordPress is the best out there. But it has its own disadvantages. If you are thinking of a unique design, you have to create your own. Most of the WordPress sites look the same to me. Mashable was started with WordPress so I guess anybody can build a great website if you have unique ideas. Thanks.

  11. I use WordPress for my own blog and it’s like a mini website for me. I have seen some great websites that are actually wordpress and I would never have realised if I hadn’t been told. So I’d prefer it over others for sure. Thanks for sharing on Bizsugar.com and good luck in the Rock Your Biz competition

    If you:
    1) want 99.999% uptime
    2) don’t want to worry about security patches and updates
    3) want free hosting with or without a custom domain
    4) want full customization of your HTML/CSS even with free hosting
    5) immediate indexing of your site in Google

    You should use Blogger, not WordPress.

    Great post on WordPress. I am switching or to WordPress by the end of August. The platform is just so much better if you are trying to run a business or monetize your blog. Blogger is ok but honestly it isn’t exactly easy to mod.

    Thanks for the post and I look forward to more.
