Okay, so I've ported my blog to WordPress after nearly despairing at Blogger's chronic instability.
WordPress contra Blogger, what do I think?
Can't stand how they handle links, though. It's worthless unless I want a huge, disordered list or want to embed the links under categories on display, a process I didn't manage to figure out. Fortunately, as you can see from my link farm, there's an easy workaround built right in.
One huge difference, however, is service. I had two related technical goofs this week. They were courteously fixed within 6 hours, with very fast answers to questions on the WP forums.
Try getting that out of Blogger.
So, so far, I'm happy with this. It doesn't let me do everything I want (for that, I'd have had to bug the hell out of my buddy Joe the Troll, and I don't want to do that), but it lets me do most of it, and with a high degree of ease.
Update: there was one complaint about color. It is theoretically possible for me to manually specify a text color for the posts that might be easier to read. However, it would be a manual adjust. So if I were going to try that, I'd need an artist type to suggest a color that would be easy on the eyes against this kind of background.
