    are there any disadvantages to using blogger for a blog vs owning your own domain and hosting?

    You get more control over everything if you have your own set up.

    I have 1 Blogger site, and about 40 WordPress sites that I host myself. Ironically, the blogger site gets more traffic than any of the rest. Not sure why, but it kinds of sucks that it worked out like that, as there's no way I'm going to risk losing that traffic moving the site over to it's own domain and change platforms.

    You could always register a domain, point it to your blogger site, and at least then if you don't like Blogger, you always have the option of moving the site elsewhere with minimal damage.

    Will Blogger let you export the database? If not, you would lose everything if you decide to host it elsewhere
