Bambit has created an excellent layman’s analysis of Blogger vs WordPress, which is a good overview of two of the most popular free blogging tools. 

She compares availabilty and demands on the user, setup speed and requirements, pages and pagination, look / feel / templates, interface and user-friendliness, and image handling.

As she pointed out, WordPress does require you to have a webhost that supports MySQL databases and you have to know how to use FTP.  However, many hosting companies will actually create the MySQL database for you, in which case I found that doing the actual WordPress install and getting up and blogging takes less than 5 minutes.

Ultimately, Bambit decided to make the switch from Blogger to WordPress (and appears quite please with her decision) - and, even better, has even gone so far as to publish a step-by-step guide to moving from Blogger to WordPress.  Thanks Bambit!

What's the purpose of the 'right click protection?'

That it prevents, among other things, right clicking on a link to open a new tab is quite a pain!
