My Personal Advice
If you are a newbie kid and want to start blogging I suggest you to use Blogger and once your blog becomes popular migrate it to WordPress for more better results. And if you are an old Blogger and knows everything about blogging so its must for you to adopt WordPress now and have a great happy career!
