General Site News – WordPress or Blogger?

There are some things I want to do on this sports card blog. Some big things, some interesting things, and some off the wall things involving cardboard. I just realized that I should of looked more into what I could do with just a free blog and a domain from WordPress. I should of learned that I can’t have my own inconspicuous ads (those ads you see make WP money, not me), I can’t have a place to sell some cards (against TOS), and can’t even use Java Script which would make for some nicer widgets and other fun stuff.

I have two options I can go with:

- Move to WordPress.org (while paying a small hosting fee)

- Move to Blogger (free, but looks less appealing)

I’m considering going to WP.org so I can just import all of this stuff seamlessly and then redesign everything to my liking by learning the basics myself so I don’t have to pay anyone to do it. I’ve been looking at hosts and found some pretty cheap and reliable hosts.

I want more freedom and both options give me that freedom, just trying to figure out if it’s worth continuing to use the WordPress platform or moving to Blogger. WordPress will give me more freedom then Blogger.

Oh what to do. Who has experience in this area and can give me their opinions?
