What blog platform is better in terms of customization?


Hi there! I've been contemplating on buying my own domain and hosting a blog that will serve as my "official" website. I am choosing between WORDPRESS and BLOGGER. Basically, I would like to have a website that is sleek and organized. I know that contents are more important than the facade of any website but I'd really want something that would suit my taste. Between wordpress and blogger, which of the two can be transformed (customized) into a beautiful website layout? I would really appreciate feedback. Thank you!

    I have tried setting up in free blog site platforms before Ma'am. And now that I am actually decided to take my writings and website to the "next level", I think I'd be needing a self-hosted site already.

    I checked the site and viewed some of their sample active sites. I love the facade and it looked so convenient to use. It reminded me of moonfruit and yola. Mind if I take a look at your own squarespace-hosted site? :) Thanks!

    But, with the free wordpress account when you have a subdomain there you can't place adsense ads right?

    Thank you Bobbeacham - you are 100% correct. I would never recommend a free platform for serious online purposes.
