How words play their game


By Anjali Gursahaney

A new mouth and an unstrained idea for Indians that comes to fore is ‘blogs’. There has been a lot of fuss about creating our own blog which has become a status symbol and a marker of identity. There is an ongoing tussle between Blogspot and WordPress and people are trying to figure out which one is better and why.

Earlier, Blogspot had a larger number of bloggers. But ever since WordPress has become the ‘new cool’, people are more enthusiastic about it. It can be said that since it includes the word ‘press’ in it, people are getting more passionate about it. Blogspot was launched on August 23, 1999, while WordPress was launched on August 8, 2005.

There is no doubt about it that WordPress is better than Blogspot as it includes many new and different features in it. If we compare them, we will see that they both have their own pros and cons. Where on one hand, Blogspot is free, reliable, easy to use and also has decent selections of templates. On the other hand, the drawback of Blogspot is that it has limited features, there is no premium framework and Google is not accountable when it distributes our content.

Also, WordPress has multiple features as its software is free, extremely flexible and feature rich, it can be customized as per our needs  (especially with web design/development knowledge), easy-to-use without coding knowledge, wide-variety of free and premium themes and the most important part is that you own your content.

However, there are few disadvantages of WordPress as well. For instance, theme customization can be difficult for beginners, it also requires paid web hosting and a domain name but some web hosts are unreliable. Last but not the least, it is easier to hack blogs on WordPress rather than on Blogspot.

Preksha Buttan told NewsGram, “I have recently joined Blogspot and it is good platform for starters. Also, it is an amazing platform for those who don’t want to earn and just write because they want to pursue their passion.”

On the other hand, Simran Keswani has entirely different view as she prefers to use WordPress rather than Blogspot. She said, “WordPress is any day better and is the new cool. It has amazing themes and Blogspot on the other hand, has a lot limitations, like you cannot update pictures more than 1 GB.”

It can be concluded by saying, Blogspot is easy for beginners and is for people who love writing. While WordPress is for people who want to earn money by writing. In my opinion, people who have been on Blogspot from a long time aren’t too keen to shift from it , as they think that they might lose their followers. Or may be they don’t find the need to use WordPress.

People’s reluctance has been witnessed earlier as well – Orkut and Facebook are one of the examples.  Earlier, people did not like Facebook much, but because Facebook offered privacy and many other features people eventually shifted to it. Another example is Hangouts of Gmail versus Google Talk .

Thus, we can clearly say, that although people are not very comfortable moving from one thing to the other, yet over the passage of time, their perceptions change. Perhaps it will also change for WordPress too.

The debate is still on!
