    Ronald,

    There are a lot of pros to moving to a self-hosted wordpress setup. You get a lot more control over your website and if you ever decide to do something else in the way of monetization, you won't have to worry about what Google thinks of it. There is also a ton of great plugins and templates available for WP.
    You won't have to worry about losing your traffic as long as you redirect all of your URL's. You can leave the old site running for a while until you are sure everything is working properly and then you can shut it down.

    Ultimately it's a personal decision as I don't think one is better than the other in terms of getting a site to rank. I do think there is far more support and extras out there for WP than for blogger.

    Here are a lot of good tips on moving your site from Google,

    Hope that helps,
