What Is A Blogger?
Blogger is a blog-publishing service that allows multi-user blogs with time-stamped entries. It was developed by Pyra Labs, which was bought by Google in 2003. The blogs are hosted by Google and generally accessed from a subdomain of blogspot.com. Blogs can also be served from a custom domain owned by the user (like www.example.com) by using DNS facilities to direct a domain to Google’s servers. A user can have up to 100 blogs per account.

Difference between hiding posts and delete posts
Hide posts mean you can republish it later when you want. You hide posts from the online community for a specific time but later when you want to show your hide post you simply republish it.
You can’t do republish your deleting posts because if you delete your posts that will permanently be deleted. You will write again if you want to publish it again. Remember, hiding posts option is better than deleting it.
Why do you need to hide posts?
That’s the main question. Let’s find out.
Sometimes you want to delete your old posts by replacing new ones because Google loves new and fresh content all the time. But it’s better to hide your old or even new posts rather than delete it. Because maybe in future you need to add content regarding your post which you want to delete now.
However, old posts can also help you. How?
You see you have old posts for more than 6 months and the new information regarding this post is in the market and people want to know about it. So in this situation, you have a chance to take your old post on the top on the search engine. You can update your old or hide the post and then republish it.
That’s why hiding posts is always a better option instead of deleting it.
Blogger Vs WordPress
Everybody knows about WordPress. You know that WordPress works with plugins and you just need to install required plugins. In WordPress, you can private your posts that you don’t want to show the internet community and it’s so easy to do.
Blogger is totally different from WordPress. While Blogger is Google’s product. You need to do everything to your own or manually because in blogger plugins are not available. That’s why most people prefer WordPress over blogger for professional business websites.
