Blogger is a platform owned by Google, meaning that somewhat this company owns your website. Some people feel safer knowing that there is “someone bigger” behind them, and that is why they opt for this service. However, serious drawback is that your website can be shut down, in case that you are violating any term of service, or your access can be restricted. This can be quite unpleasant, for something you did not on purpose might ruin all of your work. On the other hand, WordPress gives you more freedom and space, and only you can pull the plug from your site, in case that you decide to do so. Also, the fact that WordPress is open source-based extends this freedom even further. In this case, we have to give point to WordPress.
