Blogger vs Medium: What are the differences?

Blogger: Create a blog. It's free. Since Blogger was launched in 1999, blogs have reshaped the web, impacted politics, shaken up journalism, and enabled millions of people to have a voice and connect with others; Medium: The perfect place to read and write. Medium is a different kind of place on the internet. A place where the measure of success isn’t views, but viewpoints. Where the quality of the idea matters, not the author’s qualifications. A place where conversation pushes ideas forward.

Blogger and Medium can be primarily classified as "Hosted Blogging Platforms" tools.

Some of the features offered by Blogger are:

  • Publish your thoughts
  • Engage your friends
  • Design your blog

On the other hand, Medium provides the following key features:

  • Embedding videos, Tweets, Vines, etc.
  • Word Counter
  • Drafts

"Free and nice" is the primary reason why developers consider Blogger over the competitors, whereas "Beautiful UI" was stated as the key factor in picking Medium.
