WordPress vs. Blogger: Which is Better for a New Blog?

When we launched a few weeks ago, we had to choose where to host it. While there are many blogging platforms available, we focused on two options: WordPress vs. Blogger.

While I still think that's true, I quickly tired of the limitations after we began testing a WordPress version of the site about a week ago. After considering the pros and cons of each, the four of us agreed to migrate to WordPress. That's the version of the site you're looking at now. Below, I list the factors that we considered in making that decision.
