In the debate Blogger vs wordpress which is good my opinion is both are good.It depends on you demand.
If you will write only blogs and do not want to spent money than blogger.com or blogspot will be good for you.
On the other hand if you have money to buy domain and hosting than go for wordpress. If you want to be profession blogger or want make big things than i prefer wordpress for you.
According to my experience in 2015 I was a blogspot blogger. But when I realized i have to make my own site then i turned to wordpress. I find some difficulties in handing blogger but in wordpress every thing is easy for me.
But It is true that blogger is good for new blogger and non-professional blogger to learn about blogging and writing content.
