    I want to make a niche site, but should I be using blogger or wordpress?

    My questions are:

    If I use blogger, and put adsense onto it, can I still have CPA offers on my website?
    I understand I have to have my own hosting and domain for me to put adsense on wordpress correct?


    Basically I was thinking of making a blogger, adding adsense to it. Getting a few articles onto the website then when adsense was up and running, buy my own hosting, and change the website to wordpress since its more customizable and there are better plugins/themes. When I change it to wordpress and just move everything over, will the adsense be easy to set up on it?

    wordpress gives you more customizable options but I have seen some really cool sites on blogger platforms + it's very easy to use if you dont have alot of experience.

    Blogger is really easy to use if you're a beginner

    don't be intimidated by wordpress though... it took me a whole day to figure it out. And each theme is going to be different on how it can be customized. Heatmap theme is very flexible and can be made to look pretty nice!
    good luck

    wordpress is waaaay more customizable. you can add plugins, customize menu, sidebar, basically everything. go to themeforest and look up a nice theme and then just find the crack through google and you are set. wordpress takes some time to learn, but nothing to hard. just dedicate an hour or so to watching a good setup video and then watching some wordpress basics and you are set

    Don't go for Blogger!
    They can delete your site with no reason, why risk all that work disappearing?
    You can get a domain name for less than $5 and Wordpress is easy to learn.

    Blogger indexes fastly then wordpress but we dont have all authorities like wp.
    so wp is also best thing in adsense and starting a blog.
    so decide yourself whether you need your own host site or free host site.
    cheers

    I often seen people using adsenes on Blogger and then moved to Wordpress. Blogger is indexed fast than wordpress that's why people prefer blogger. You must use blogger and then after indexing moved to wordpress.

    Save yourself some time in double-handling and just start with Wordpress from the very beginning.

    As someone mentioned above, Wordpress isn't nearly as intimidating as some people seem to think - although I don't really know where this preconceived idea even comes from.

    Take 10-20 minutes to actually take a look around the WordPress Dashboard and familiarise yourself with the layout and you'll be blogging like a ninja in no time.

    I've got nothing against blogger at all, but Wordpress is really user friendly and if you're thinking about moving across later anyway, it makes much more sense to just start with Wordpress from the get go!

    Best of luck to you, I hope your site takes off!
