WordPress has changed the way, we look at CMS. I myself started at Blogger and then switched over to WordPress and the difference was huge.

WordPress is a complete package from its themes to plugins to complete control over your blog which is lacking in blogger.

Thanks for sharing this information Zac. And cool infographic.
