The better platform: Wordpress or Blogger?

I'm considering setting up my company's website on a blogging platform. Since I'm a heavy user of Google services, I was considering using Blogger, especially since it is free. (I use it for my personal blog.) However, my partner said self-hosted Wordpress is more flexible and more professional. Is Wordpress truly better than Blogger? If so, what are the main selling points of using Wordpress over Blogger in 2012?

Say I use my Google account to identify myself when posting on Blogger. Can the person running the blog see my e-mail address or other details?

Script kiddie, cron job, or 'there's an app for that'?

After three years of Blogspot and Flickr, I'm finally moving to my very own unlimited storage, unlimited bandwidth servers. (Yes, I know that's not really unlimited, but that's not going to be a problem). The problem is that said photos are on blogspot and flickr, and there's 1,000+ posts with perhaps 5,000 photos. Tell me there's an automated way / script to bring everything under one roof...? [more inside]

Wordpress.org or Blogger? Help me decide which would be best in this case, please.

During this holiday break I'm going to be purchasing a domain name and migrating a University department's WordPress.com blog over to either WordPress.org or Blogger. I need help deciding which (Wordpress.org or Blogger) will be the best way to go based on the blog's needs and the capabilities of its authors. [more inside]

ghost writing corporate blogs

Ghost-writing multiple corporate blogs for a living. Is it feasible? Do companies all want exclusive rights to the content -- thereby removing the option of leveraging the same content on multiple blogs? (I'm aware there are clearinghouses that will market your blogging, but I'm not talking about that type of piecemeal work.) Any bloggers out there who are employed by multiple corporations?

Blogger ID number? In running order?

I hope you guys can settle an argument for me about Blogger. Each Blogger user has a unique profile id. eg blogger.com/profile/XXXX XXXX is in running numbers. The smallest number is the earliest blog. ie blogger.com/profile/1 belongs to Blogger's founder. XXXX stays with you, until you delete your account. There is no way to change it. Even if you change your user name, profile etc. My friend maintains that it changes with your username. So which is which? My Google-fu has failed me, for this instance.

Best Photo Blog?

I want to set up a photoblog, preferably within or in conjuction with my Blogger blog. I thought that Google recently acquired a company that might be doing this in the future, any word? If this is unlikely, what are the best alternatives? What if I don't care if it works well with Blogger, is there anything that is good and free that can serve my needs?

Blogging application that includes line-numbering?

Blogging application that includes line-numbering? I'd like to publish content for peer review, in chonologic blog format, with automatic line numbering, so that people can comment, by line number, on my writing. Obviously, the line breaks and numbers have to be the same for everyone. AfterDinner.com offers this functionality, though it isn't really a blogging application. I'm a veteran Blogger user, and willing to do a little bit of creative coding (eg: light hacking of Moveable Type). Any help?

Bloggery Mystery

This is an embarassingly simple question, but after plowing through the Internet Explorer prefs, I can't find the answer.

When using blogger, a small window is left on your screen with a "close" button. When you click on it, a warning pops up: "this web page is trying to close your window and do strange things to your cat." and then you have to click a confirmation button.

Yeah, yeah, I know I can close the window three other ways, but for weak, idiosyncratic reasons would like to just click on that "close" button.

(why do I feel like"Monk" here...)

Blogger Errors

blogger woes: I've been trying publish (for the very first time) via Blogger, but every single time I press 'publish' I get the same error - "There Were Errors in Publishing. dk.eos.net.FtpError: Login incorrect." I know for a fact that the ftp username and password Im using are correct, so what the heck am I doing wrong?? I've been fidding with this for over an hour and I'm losing my mind!! I thought Blogger was supposed to be easy!
