I've used Wordpress for years, wouldn't use anything else now. But Setup your own wordpress on your own hosting account rather than using the gree one at wordpress.com. That way you can instal your own templates/plugins (of which there are many) etc. A hassle at first but quite easy to grasp.

Hmmm, I've always liked the look of Wordpress and have thought about switching, but take a look at the small print, when you agree to use them I believe it says that they are entitled to put adverts on your site when they want. I decided to keep to blogger because of this.Worth checking out perhaps.

I'm with the Paper Boy, Tom. We use Wordpress for School blogs (as Blogger is blocked) and it's FAR less intuitive, slower to upload and more prone to crashing.

Blogger rules!

Well, on the whole I agree that Blogger is easier to use and less clunky...but the killer app on Wordpress is the unlimited extra pages facility, which means you can run your blog as a mini-website. A pro version of Blogger offering that and a few more bells and whistles would leave it way head.
