Pls i want to know if google charge for hosting service after buying a domain from them......i.e changing from the domain "x.blogspot.com" to "x.com". And if no, would you consider it as better choice over using wordpress which involves buying a domain and subscribing for hosting services?

No. Google will not charge you for the hosting after buying a domain with them and setting it up as a custom domain for your blogger blog. However, the domain name itself is not free and you will need to renew it yearly to retain it.

Blogger and wordpress have their own advantages and disadvantages but if you are running on a low budget, getting a custom domain on Blogger hosting is a better idea. The best thing about Blogger is that you will never be charged for hosting no matter how large your site grows and how much traffic you get

The biggest drawback with Blogger is that your data is not 100% yours because its on Google's servers and in rare cases, people have had their website shut down due to violations of Blogger terms but like I said such cases are rare and backing up your posts regularly could prevent total loss should that ever happen.

On the other hand, Wordpress is very beginner friendly, easier to use and customize and more SEO friendly , but you will need to upgrade to higher and more expensive hosting plans as your website grows and your traffic increases. This can actually become a pain down the line if you are on a small budget and your website is not making much money.

So for a beginner on a low budget, using the free Blogger hosting with a custom domain might be the most logical choice.
Leave it for God, don't worry yourself. Leave it for God, don't cry no more.

I'll like you to yield to that  advice given. As soon as you start seeing income just make sure you change to wordpress. The advantages are too numerous with plenty of different plugins you can use.

I'm not too sure if you know ogbonge blog. It happens that a blog that has been running for close to 3years if not more(not too sure)was deletd by google because he runs on blogger. If not for God, his sweat and hardwork would by now be a waste. After two weeks, the blog was restored. Now, he's changed to wordpress.

So, I want you to factor that into your plans and be discipline. Goodluck.

Like my 2 bosses said earlier you can start on blogger using custom domain to show some levels of professional and then later switch over to wordpress.org but if you have the financial grace, why not start on wordpress immediately? It will speed up your success because it is so so SEO friendly.

Exactly. The blog I mentioned above has got it's own domain and when Google came up with their funny pranks he quickly makes a uturn. That's a blog that earns 80k attimes within 3days from adsense.

Now,had it been the blog was not restored by google, he still would have gotten his PR 3 domain name probably starting allover on wordpress.org. That is the importance of going professional even if you plan to use blogger, get your own domain name.

Goodluck.
