I highly recommend Wordpress, it more user friendly and you host in on your own server so therefore have more control over your site.

There are many themes such as ours(see signature) and plugins available, so that you have a great flexibility in creating the site you want.

Cheers,

Ollie

To keep your options open, why not try both?

WordPress can import posts and comments from Blogger, should you ever change your mind. I don't think you can import the other way though.

does anyone know of any blogs that do just affiliates? I am still a little unsure about how to go about it....thanks!
I think there is a lot, but sometimes people use blog only to build newsletter, so they can email their affiliate link.

WordPress is the better business choice. Blogger would be more appropriate for personal blogs.

There are many blogs out there that use both contextual ads (like adsense)and affiliate products to assist in monetizing their blogs. The biggest thing to consider is if you are passionate enough about the topic to write about it on a regular basis. It sounds like your goal will be to gain regular readers for your blog and then promote various products to them. That model can work well.

I have heard that you can use affiliates with blogger and with the wordpress on your own hosted site, but that you couldn't use wordpress.com and use affiliates with that???

I think you will find yourself with many more options using WordPress.
