For beginners which is better, BlogSpot or WordPress?

For beginners which is better, Blogspot or WordPress? This question on your mind is common like all other newbies. The clearcut suggestion from me starts with Blogspot and move to WordPress. Blogspot is definitely a good place for blogging as it is the product of the search giant Google. Google takes care of everything once you create an account on Blogspot. While it is not the case in self Hosted WordPress site. But, you get the freedom to do any modification on a WordPress site.

Hello: Here I am talking about self-hosted WP that is WordPress.Org and not WordPress.Com which is totally different.
