StabilityWhile Blogger is the first blogging platform created, once they were purchased by Google they have been known to have a few hiccups. Blogs using the program have been known to go down for several hours, even days and when the software is upgraded there are usually a lot of issues. Also, if you are found in violation of Google’s TOS they will shut your blog down without any warning. There are not a lot of safeguards in place to prevent you from “breaking” your blog also. You will not crash because of traffic or bandwidth because of bigger host servers.WordPress.com is generally thought to be a stable program. There are a ton of safeguards to protect you from breaking your blog, but it also highly limits your customization. The hosting company makes auto-updates to keep the site secure. You will not crash because of traffic or bandwidth because of bigger host servers.Again because of the free status of your site you are limited by their TOS.Depending on what host you use and if you regularly update your blog depends on the stability and security of your blog. You have total control over this. You are also not limited to your CMS’ TOS and a violation shutting you down. You will be limited to your hosting services TOS, but because you pay them, they tend to be limited and they contact you to find another host if you are in violation. Also, depending on your host and the bandwidth you choose will depend on how much traffic you can handle.Tumblr is often accused of being unstable, naysayers have accused it of being down 30% of the time. Since then Tumblr has tried to increase it’s stability but depending on usage it does go down…kind of like Twitter.
