    Advantages of running your blog on blogger for ease in gaining followers?

    Is there an advantage to running your blog on the blogger site in order to be a part of the community or will you be better of running your blog on your own site for the extra freedom?  What I mean to ask is wheather or not having people who are part of blogger be able to easily follow your site is worth it or should I just run an independent site blog.

    I like blogger because it is easy to use and update as well as include AdSense ads in it.  I also feel like there is a lot of freedom, design-wise.  I don't see a lot of bloggers "following" other bloggers.  Usually, people just subscribe to the rss feed or check it often for new posts.  Hope this helps!

    It is possible to have your own custom domain on Blogger, they only cost $10 per year for registration, hosting is free with them. My own site is under Blogger (check the first link in my profile) and I'm happy, I've only had it up since I joined Hubpages a few months ago and now its worth over $170 (not bad for a beginner).

      Do you have a way of adding SEO descriptions on Blogger if you pay for the year? That's something that's very important to me, but I  love the simplicity of Blogger and Wordpress. Gotta have traffic, though!
