I have used the four main blog platforms in my time as a mom blogger. I've used Blogger, Typepad, Wordpress and Wordpress (self-hosted). I really love the Wordpress widgets. They make sprucing up up your sidebar really easy.
What feature do you love about the blog platform you use?
As a fairly new blogger, I love Blogger. I was able to get up and blogging in no time, knowing not the first thing about anything! Also, now that I am more experienced, using such a popular format, there are TONS of hacks out there to make your page however you would like for it to be.
Blogger ~ I just love the simplicity to it. I was up and running in no time. I love everything about blogger. You can also type up your post and then schedule it to post on a certain day/time. I love it. I wouldn't change for anything.
I started out with Blogger, piece of cake. Then I moved to WordPress b/c I need my blog to be part of my website. I can't figure anything out! I just hired someone to help me with it, because right now the tag line should be, "It only looks generic". I had a decent WordPress blog that someone designed for me, then I switched servers and lost the whole thing. Based on the positive WordPress comments here I am looking forward to learning it.
I have only ever used blogger. I guess my very favorite feature is that it is free and as someone who started blogging not knowing a thing it has been a very user friendly option for me to learn the ropes on.
