I understand your scared you have been on blogspot for years its so easy. Here are some reason why you should change from blogspot now.
1. You own NOTHING!! Thats right there have been a TON of reports of bloggers coming to there page and its gone. You own nothing they can take you down at any point for any reason and you know google … they will tell you nothing and customer service does not exist.
2. You can not customize like you can with WordPress. Believe me I know that WordPress is not easy but once you get use to it I promise you its worth it. I knew of a blogger that refused to get off blogspot and would search for HOURS for bootleg blogspot versions of the plugins that came with using wordpress. Frustrated she finally changed and hates that she didn’t do it sooner.
3. Sorry I have to say it but having yourname.blogspot.com is super unprofessional. As a person that works with bloggers for brands I am sorry but if you don’t take your blog seriously how can I? Its not expensive to have your own domain and a basic blog starting off you can get started for about $20.00.
4. More opportunities with Ad Networks. You don’t have to depend on just google and if you on blogspot you have no choice.
I don’t know of anyone that is willing to loose all there hardwork but its happening everyday.
