I am planning to start a blog that publishes information about our company and developments in the area of education and technology. Any pointers on which is better and more feature rich, Wordpress or Blogger. Specifically I am looking at the following points:
Wordpress is much more feature rich than Blogger with many plugins that you can use to tailor it to your requirements.
I would go with hosting your own instance of Wordpress rather than using the wordpress.org service.
It need not be expensive, and many hosts will provide a simple one click install. GoDaddy are cheap, and served me well.
This will give you full control over your blog, it's plugins, designs, avoiding any restrictions which a hosted service places upon you, now or in the future.
I use wordpress and really like it. I highly recommend it.
Combination of Wordpress and Headway theme has been a huge time saver for me. Blogger just does not give you enough hacking ability. I will be contrarian here and say that Thesis for Wordpress is WAY over-hyped. Headway is easier to mess with and takes less time to make it work. I have recently shown a friend how Headway works and she went back to Thesis folks for a refund.
Hope this helps.
