In my opinion, blogger.com is more popular than tumblr, and because of it’s popularity, it connected to almost every apps you want to add, example, if you want to add badges, almost websites have easier access to blogger.com (we don’t have to copy paste it, but we can add the apps in one click)
Then, blogger.com has Google plus that has a greater effect to popularize your blog.

That’s all pure my opinion as a blogger using blogger.com. I use tumblr.com, but so rare, so I don’t use it anymore and I don’t know tumblr’s hidden good features. Ask http://www.chictopia.com/cynchmolina , one of my favorite blogger that using tumblr at http://cynchmolina.tumblr.com/ She is more expert than me :D

Happy blogging, new friend :)

I use blogspot myself, I’ve never tried wordpress or tumblr.

I really like Blogspot because it has many cool features! Though I am sure Wordpress offers many also :) I also like how blogspot is within the google network (as far as using it with their other features (analytics, email, docs, sites)).

I use Tumblr myself just because I find it easier to navigate on – I tried wordpress, blogspot and for me, Tumblr is the easiest. Also, tumblr and blogspot blogs are very different from each other (except from the occasional cases). Tumblr blogs tend to be more of visual photographic blogs while blogspot or wordpress are more of an original content kind of blog. On tumblr, there’s a feature called reblogging which basically has the same concept of retweeting. Only few tumblr fashion blogs are authentic and creates original content for their blog (AKA moi).

Also, think about your demographics. Tumblr is getting more popular and popular especially to teenagers. Sometimes I see Tumblr as a platform for just a fashion blog as a hobby. So, if you are looking for a more porfessional result from your blog, I would say blogspot would be the best choice. But then again, you can always choose anything – it’s just the matter of how you’re willing to spend time committing on your blog to create something special.

Thank you all so much for your insight! And I definitely agree with all of your points, Blogspot does have more features for a fashion blog – buttons etc. but I find tumblr easier to use as well.
I think I will just carry on using tumblr to support my blog so far, and maybe I will try Blogspot one day :)
