Hi @ashleyhatch As someone who made the mistake of not merely having a duplicate blog, but a ton of them about 6 years ago. I had a website and nearly 20 blogs, using Blogger for some, Wordpress for the others. It wore me out because I had some books that I made individual blogs for but I realized that I just needed to make a page for the book and use categories more efficiently.
The advances in both Blogger and Wordpress since I’ve started out make either of them excellent choices, depending on what it is that you have, how you are emphasizing it, and to whom you are targeting.
I have a friend who uses Blogger exclusively because he utilizes YouTube in conjunction with His blog and he is exceptionally savvy with Google analytics. Although you can pay extra to have YouTube or WP video on your Wordpress.com blog (and no problem if you’re using WP.org), if you’re on a tight budget, as I was in those days, Blogger allows you to get that done easier, and its free. I stuck with WP myself, because although I would like to have video on my blog (and I may get it later), it is not as high a priority right now and I just don’t have the finances for it. I used to have a Wordpress.org website and blog, but when the finances were getting slim because of shifts in priorities, etc., in addition to not having the time to maintain those WP sites, it was really easy to make the transition back to Wordpress.com… the same as @jasonwiser mentioned, but in reverse.
