From angst-induced teens to retired military personnel, who doesn’t love to blog? But of course, we all do, as it provides complete liberty to express thoughts, feelings and unbiased opinions about literally anything and everything around us in the most interactive way possible! With the art of blogging getting all the more popular globally by the day, some of the world’s most leading web-oriented organizations have been continuously striving to deliver the most user-friendly and customized blogging platforms for the general public as a whole.
Just hit a search on Google, and you’ll instantly get what I mean! Several blogging websites trying to coax and cajole you to click on their domains and visit their content, sign up and contribute compositions over their mediums are almost uncountable, period!
Henceforth, here are some quick details on what 2 of the internet’s most relied upon blogging giants, Blogger and WordPress offer to its users, and what goes on behind the scenes; read on to know more-Blogger or wordpress!
1) The primary purpose of Blogger and WordPress
Most novices fresh to the wide and varied scenario of blogging tend to associate both Blogger and WordPress simply as websites which are both dedicated to the function of catering to one’s blogging needs, regardless of how frequent they may be or what exclusive topics may be encased. Rest assured, this is not so!
As a matter of fact (and a very important one at that), Blogger is a medium that provides services to suit a domestic lifestyle, whilst its counterpart WordPress aims to deliver blogging criteria based on a more commercial basis.
2) Tailoring Blogger and WordPress to your heart’s content
Although WordPress requires its users to upgrade to premium packages for receiving most benefits – from exclusive domains to advert-free schemes, its feature of providing an array of free, attractive themes is way higher than that of Blogger.
Nonetheless, here’s the catch: while hundreds of themes are available sans any cost over WordPress, along with the ability of switching from one theme to another simply with a single click, the limited versions over Blogger could be vastly modified by means of efficiently handling its settings, if you’re smart enough!
3) Allowing the rest of the world to see your creations
Sharing content from WordPress via an array of Social Media websites such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Tumblr is always within your fingertips, and very much seamlessly automatic! Blogger, on the other hand works best only in affiliation with Google+. All hope is not lost, anyway, for ‘Like’ and ‘Tweet’ buttons are available as options, along with the incorporation of IFTTT.
What is IFTTT?
An abbreviation for ‘If This Then That’, IFTTT is a series of actions that can be set by any user over Blogger after the indication of certain triggers.
For example, if a new blog has been uploaded, then a command to automatically post a link to the blog over the wall of that user’s Facebook account can be created instantly, pronto! This enables bigger and better exposure to the blog to all those who visit this user’s wall.
