    I will vote for blogger, as I've seen a lot of spam blogspot blogs sitting on the top spot of Google, with spam backlinks.

    Self hosting has to win every time. Then you create blog profiles on those platforms to provide link juice and viewers to your main website.

    I'll go with blogger, because I also rank many blogs more easily than WP.

    While I like WP, Blogger/BlogSpot is the way to go! They're owned and operated by Google and are given almost immediate trust and I've ranked tons of sites and keywords with Blogger/BlogSpot. :)

    Self hosted wordpress because you can almost do anything you want. And you can define your permalinks unlike on blogger.

    Your own hosting is always better than everything else. Using WP.com and blogger will give you more SEO benefits so use these in conjunction with your own hosting.
