Also many Blogger users complain about the commenting feature and that it isn’t easy to use as is on WordPress. Many schools and public institutions block the Blogger platform which could significantly limit your audience. Additionally many users had found Blogger Help little less helpful and somewhat confusing to find the answers for what they were looking for.
