This is a question we get a lot and depending on what your needs are you might want to choose one over the other. If you are using Domain of One’s Own or UMW Blogs for a class be sure to check with the professor to make sure you are using the right platform. While they have things in common they don’t do the exactly same thing.

It provides users with a domain and hosting where users have the opportunity and flexibility to design and create a meaningful and vibrant digital identity.
