Blogspot or Wordpress?

I'm getting ready to start my own food and garden blog, and I'm curious about which you prefer. Blogspot seems easier to use and to add ads to, but I'm wondering if there's a problem with Google owning the content. Does this make it difficult/impossible to import your blog content to a web site if you set one up later?

I notice someone who found a way to create categories on her blogspot, but at the least I assume it's not as easy as with wordpress. There seem to be a lot more blogger sites than wordpress contributing to photograzing. How tech savvy do you have to be to capture ads for either one, and manage the site? Don't really want to pay someone to do it.

I'd really like to know why you made the choice you did, and if you're satisfied.
