I finally have some spare time, and I would like to start a blog. But I just don't know which platform should I use. With Blogger you can run advertisements and it's easier to configure, whereas on WordPress you can not (on a free platform). The thing is that WordPress is much more popular, and highly customizable. Since I cannot find a definite choice, I would like you to share some thoughts about one platform or the other. Thank you.
P.S. I also wrote a post about this on tumblr: <promotional link removed>
What people don't know is that Blogger is highly customizable to look like a regular website but it takes a little learning to do it or someone with the knowledge. Take a look at these blogs. Replace the word "dot" with the period.

The free wordpress blog does not allow HTML or adsense. You can't even add plugins so if you are looking to make money on your blog you would either have to pay for hosting and use the other WP or use Blogger.
If you need help customizing your Bloger blog let me know.
I think you're a bit confused.
When most people talk about Blogger vs Wordpress, they're not talking about Wordpress.com - they're talking about Wordpress.org
Wordpress.org provides free software which you can use on a paid hosting service. It's far more powerful than Blogger and you have complete freedom to do whatever you like. The downside, of course, is that you have to pay for hosting.
