There is a lot to be said for simplicity! If one can't use it, it won't be used!
I visited both your blogs. They clearly have a different look and feel to them. The Blogger site seems (to me) more personal in nature, and the wordpress more "professional" (not to say the blogger site is unprofessional - just more casual). Probably more due to how you set it up the than actual platform.
Simple seems to be a recurring theme here..
Since you have direct experience with both - can you (or anyone else can chime in) list any features you use on Wordpress that are not available on Blogger?
Thanks, Cassandra! I'm sure your tips will be helpful. So kind of you to offer.
Interesting that most people are saying that Blogger is simpler, but I'm getting from your post is that it's as simple as you make it -- and maybe some aren't really getting the SEO punch that they might want because they don't -- as you said ". . . learn some tricks and edit your html code to add meta-tags etc."
