    Wordpress is a much more advanced blogger platform.  Wordpress.com is managed hosting and they would not allow you to put Google AdSense ad to monetize your blogs.    However, Wordpress.org provides you the software to host your own Wordpress blog provided that you purchased your own web hosting and domain name.  This is known as self hosting.  In which you have full control over your blog including monetizing it with Google Adsense for other ads.

    Blogger allows your to put AdSense ads on Blogger managed hosting site without you needing to host your own blog.

    Wordpress is one of the best CMS out there. The real advantage of going to .org, is that  you will have 100% control over your site, which includes domains, hosting, ads, content, design and everything you can imagine.

    The cons... well, since you need to manage everything, you'll need to learn more and pay attention to things like SPAM, attacks, traffic, etc (not trying to scare you). Overall, going  to the .org territory is an investment for a blogger if you want to go one step away from the competition.

    I use both because 2 blogs are better than 1. They also make good back links and help your Google rank.

    None. With wordpress you aren't able to monetize your blog without buying a domain or using their software to host a wordpress blog. If you're looking at the free options, choose blogger.

    however, wordpress "does" have plugins like commentluv and keywordluv which is helpful for getting comments (a.k.a fresh and new content that you get almost for free). The only downside there is that you have to use the paid option to access those and you have to deal with spammers.
