    I still prefer blogger. I think wordpress is better but I am comfortable with blogger.

    I think the blog search needs to be improved.

    Both Word press and Blogspot are good in their own respect. It also depends on user what he/she likes.

    I use WordPress for my blog. I find it easy to update and add bells and whistles as well. However, I would recommend going with a Premium WordPress vs the Standard free package.
