This is an upsetting answer, and I'll tell you why. At Blogger I could use custom themes or even make my own...free of charge. I PAID here and can't alter my blog even that much??? I'm not sure your answer is correct, to be honest. However, I did pay to use my own domain name, and even after changing the DNS and everything, while I can type in my domain name and GET my blog here at WordPress, the url still shows it as virtualink.wordpress.com. THAT also was better at Blogger, because when I typed in my domain name via a url re-direct, it showed my domain name as the url, not a blogger.com name.
I'm starting to think WordPress FAILS in comparison on customization to Blogger if what you're saying, thesacredpath, is true, in addition to what I have now seen as a result of paying for being able to SUPPOSEDLY use my own domain name. Rubbish.
