  30. Wow ! What a wonderful description with full Info you have posted here about all blogging platforms, like Blogger, WordPress, Tumblr, blogs.
    My favorite blogging platforms are Blogspot, WordPress, and Tumblr.

    I guess, WordPress blogs are known for their reputation, flexibility, availability, effectiveness, and SEO-friendliness ! Rest is up to you. It depends what you want to get out of your blogging.

  31. Thanks Social Bookmarking for liking the post. And, apart from WordPress, Blogspot, i also like Tumblr for the sheer joy of sharing with its vast n huge online community. Tumblr has more so of real sharing and less of marketing and SEO unlike Blogspot and Wordpress where most of the blogs are designed for content markleting purpose.

  32. You said it all ! The top reasons why i prefer Wordpress over BlogSpot Blogger blogs are-

    #1 Blogspot does not leave much room for customization.

    #2 WordPress blogs offer you great flexibility and optimization freedom

    #Plugins ! Where are plugins for Bloggers? WordPress have plugins for everything blogging and that also, you can activate/use with a single click ! Wow !!

    I could tell you more, but as you said, i don't want to disappoint my Blogger friends :)

    And, i myself use Some Blogspot blogs, some customized and some are still using the Blogspot domains, and i can't use custom domains for them, as with all, i am afraid of loosing the traffic.

    All in all, After Wordpress, Blogger is though a good blogging platform for novice bloggers to start blogging quickly with very simple steps ( that's good thing for new blogger, otherwise they might be afraid to even start a blog :)

  33. Webnode is also a good blogging site, but it's not free and we have mentioned here only the free blogging sites!

  34. Thanks Lake. And you have a good blog there with nice subject (new)

  35. Blogspot blogs are becoming vulnerable to spams and are being exploited only for the sake of backlinks, SEO. You can find countless number of Blogger Blos where people have created blogs only to take backlinks. And, internet marketers and SEO companies are leading the brigade of such peoples.
