Can anyone compare these two? I have used blogger and free wordpress. I hate how my blogger looks awful on a phone. I was going to go with typepad, but squarespace keeps jumping up on my radar.

What is your business?


 I currently use wordpress (yoginimomma.com) on the wordpress hosted site, and I'm switching to being independently hosted because you are limited with what you can do on wp.com-- no html or email signup forms, integrated stores, etc. 


The business school seminar I'm taking says wordpress is the best for service and product based businesses,  end of story. Some people prefer squarespace because it's apparently easier to use. 


if you could tell me what kind of business you have I could help more :)

Self hosted WordPress with a good domain name. I can help you setting up stuff and getting things moving. Initial costs are pretty low - about $10 USD for first year of the domain (.com, you can get .info or others for less for first year, my personal advice would be to pay for the first three years at least), then shared hosting - more than enough to begin with, you can find something decent starting at $40-$50 USD/year.
