Some users never migrate from blogspot, and they have good reasons not to.
Look at webupd8.blogspot.com, he has all those plugins we use on wordpress running on blogspot.
Still I love wordpress coz it’s Open Source and More customizable. I always like to play around with it.

Great list!

Although WordPress is easy to use (the admin is phenomenal), you can take it to a more advanced level, such as messing with code and CSS if you really want. Basically, the sky’s really the limit on what you want to accomplish using this tool!

I help set up WordPress sites all the time and Wordpress is really a gift to small businesses. WordPress saves time and money for small business people because of the ease of updating, ability to easily add a page and the plugins. If people’s requirements are basic, they can get special features like a photo gallery at no or low cost thanks to the ease of installing plugins.
