Blogger is really the number one competitor of WordPress. Blogger is simplified to the extreme. It makes it possible for users to build a beautiful blog within a short period of time. With a few clicks, your blog will be designed and ready for launch. Signing up is free and you’ll even receive a free domain. Just remember that you’ll need to upgrade to get a premium domain. It is possible to earn money with your blog as well. Just sign up for a Google AdSense account and you’ll be able to earn money by displaying ads on your blog.
