    I just say....go for new domain and install wordpress...you will learn a lot.
    And if you don't like it at a later stage...you can simply flip it.

    both work just fine, although in my experience it's better to buy an aged domain or use blogspot. This is mainly because of indexing issues, and of course the infamous SANDBOX issue (pm me if you need a bit more elaboration on these sneaky little problems). You can buy cheap expired domains for under 50$ in some cases. Just my 2 loonies!

    If you are new to the blogging world, try on blogspot first, use a unique nick which you can convert to a .com anytime.

    Get a hand on blogging and if you got intention to make money, you can use blogspot to get a feel.

    As you are more comfortable, that's where wordpress and a .com domain name will come in professionally.

    I suggest you to buy 1-2 years old domain and install wordpress. WP has really good plugins and he rank very well in google.

    Please go with a new domain. Blogspot is not for professional business.

    Its better to use individual domain rather than using blogspot's long subdomain, separate domain will bring professional look to the site and bring more good result than blogspot's.

    When making a blog at blogspot you'll get a URL like: NICKNAME.blogspot.com
    It's recommended to have a unique nickname so you can register www.NICKNAME.com when your blog becomes popular and brings in some decent money.

    It also depends what kind of monetizing you'll be doing.....for ad*sen*se i think blogs*pot is great, for some affiliate products it's great to.............look man regardless of what kind of site you use, g0*daddy, blog*spot, ect......it's all about climbing the SERPS and I promise you there is no difference between buying a domain and using free blogs*pot blogs.....google won't give authority to some one with a paid site over blogger.....it's all about your on sute and more importantly offsite SEO my friend...............................Blogs don't always convert well with some niches though.....
