    I have added a blog section to one of my sites. The 'in-house' blog software they used wasn't great for me. I have had a bit of experience with blogger and wordpress but with do you guys think is the best to use?

    I'm currently having a nightmare getting any of the edits on blogger to actually update on the template :S

    Wordpress is free, it's just some plugins / templates that are premium

    Aye for Wordpress, there are more plugin options here to improve your blog's interactivity and optimization. I use Blogger but not yet aware if they have any plugins at all.

    WordPress for sure, much more than a blogging platform.

    If you need any help then feel free to ask here or drop me a PM - I pretty much make a living from WordPress.

    You're best off posting that in the services wanted forum with details of your website and budget.

    I have to agree with the others, WordPress simply for the ease of use and you can have it up and running within ten minutes.

    go for wordpress. It has evolved a lot over the years and the community is very active in helping develop it.
