    I'm looking to develop a content-rich, value-giving personal blog (not autoblog). I was wondering what you think the best blogging engine would be for something like this. Should I go with blogger, wordpress or what?

    I agree with helloall. Wordpress is the easiest, quickest, and cheapest solution available.

    In terms of SEO, will it matter what the blogging engine is that I use? I'm assuming I will be ranked higher if I am using Blogger instead of WP?

    Google owns blogger so it gives a slightly advantage to blogger blogs BUT with the right wordpress SEO plugins like Platinum SEO you can rank better with a wordpress blog....

    Subdomain (blogspot.com) doesn't really matter...

    Yea Wordpress is best blog engine atm. If you want to take a plunge, you can try Drupal which is even better for SEO but it's very complex to setup.

    I am not sure that Wordpress is the best but it is by far the quickest and easiest.

    Drupal and Joomal are capable of more but take much longer to learn and set up.
