Getting approved for AS on a free host like WordPress is tough. With Blogger you get approved, as Google owns it.
I don't know what policy AS uses with WordPress, though.

You can't put adsense on the free Wordpress hosting, it's in their TOS. You can put adsense on a blog you publish with Wordpress, if it's hosted by a third party webhost. Hence my problem. I don't want to start paying just yet.

if you're going for a free host I'd say blogger.
It's very easy to get accepted into Adsense this way.
It's how I started with adsense with a blog that had no more than 3 posts and was even in violation (or close to violation) with the Adsense TOS.
If you can afford a host go with wordpress.
It's easy to put adsense on that as well.
Even has nice plugins to make it more easy.
I use it myself.
And I also got the feeling that blogger blogs hardly ever turn up in searchresults.

Moving a blog or any other site is something you want to avoid at all costs.
I have used both of these blogging platforms and I can tell you that you are far better off buying your own domain, buy some hosting and put wordpress on it.
I went through the growing pains. You will thank me later.

If you have knowledge of PHP you should be able to use wordpress for about anything. Go look at the add-ons available for wordpress they might have something available already and you won't have to write it yourself. I would highly suggest you start your own domain if you're "thinking" of doing it later. Because chances are you will learn, want more functionality and eventually want your own domain.

Well, my knowledge of PHP is zero :( I know basic html and that's about it. Thanks for the replyes, I guess I'll go with Wordpress on my own domain.

Don't worry Wordpress is extremely easy to use and you can always find help with it if you need it.

As I said, I'm using wordpress myself on my own domain and I don't know anything about PHP either.
You really don't need to when working with wordpress.
Installing/editing themes and plug-ins is really easy and putting your adsense code onto pages is easy as well..
Since no links can be posted here do a search for "adsense-deluxe".
You'll see how easy it is.
