    lol it's not a bad idea to use blogger and you won't lose money to use blogger rather you will loose money if you buy a hosting.If you wanna try alternate to blogger then try wordpress blog which is free to use.

    If you're looking to use Adsense, you'll want to go with Blogger, as WordPress.com blogs don't allow Adsense.

    Good blogger blog is almost the same as a standalone. But its adsense\amazon only, for the rest they might ban

    well, I was talking about this with a friend of mine and he told me he got 2 blogger blogs closed as they were SUSPECTING that he was selling links...! Not a good thing, I don't like to have a blog that is not really my blog and that can be closed anytime for any reason

    It takes like, 10 minutes to register a domain, subscribe to a hosting provider(any major but godaddy) and from the cpanel go to fantastico and click install wordpress. (guess you missed the fantastico part?)

    a day or two to master it to a goooood extent, its really powerful and once you get the hang of it, you´ll love it more than google does. Srsly think for instance macroing installs and subdomains with this thing. Kaboom unlimited sites to suit your needs. Another thing is that you can custom one install(meaning you get the site done until one certain point, which all others will be equal in the case of the need of replicating.) save it, and then use it to replace any fresh install you have and then you have it again developed until that certain point. Now don´t get me started on plugins and everything else. It´s free, why bang your head against blogger when you can have your self hosted platform with all possible customizations unlocked ready to serve you.

    Funny thing my 800th post happens to be about this topic, exactly where I started out on IM back then. Thanks BHW.

    The thing about using platforms like blogger is, is that you are not in control of it.

    Blogger is great to use! But wordpress is better! what you have to realize is that you building equity that you can sell. With blogger they can change their term and delete your blog without warning you. Use it as a test subject, and if you start making money move it to wordpress. Word press is easy to use if you need some help let me know.

    If you are going to use free wordpress, there's no way you can put adsense there, and no way you can make money, or you can run it for a couple of months before they shut it down.

    If you are going to use blogger, it's easy to put adsense there, and you can put banners for you ads on the sidebar, if you are going to use blogger as your landing page or money site, don't put a lot of banners, and large buy now buttons on the post as google will suspect you are a spammer when they crawl your site. So just keep it simple, if you have to put an affiliate link on your post, use google url shortener, only use word links. Don't make it spammy.

    Wordpress can seem a bit daunting at first if you jump into it not knowing beans about setting up a site. However the learning curve is pretty quick and you can get great advice right here on this forum.

    This community helped me with some pretty dumbass questions. :)

    WordPress is much flexible than blogger, although blogger allows Adsense. But due to some unquestionable reasons, Google due tend to block blogs without letting you know what have you done wrong. one of those disadvantages that is really unfair.

    DO NOT USE BLOGGER FOR AUTOBLOGGING!

    The reason being, the blogger program has a robot that detects auto submissions and will delete your blogs. How do I know this? Because 6 of my blogs were deleted yesterday!!!

    Wordpress is useless if you want to make money. Since you can't put ads on it. End of story. Blogger it is.

    Use blogger, you cannot lose money. It will get you started.

    THEN.

    Learn how to set up your own blog, it's not rocket science, and if your blogger blog is successful maybe transfer it to your own hosted blog.
