    Tagging is used to categorise your posts according to key themes in it. Use a couple but not more than maybe 5.

    Excerpt, well you don't need it right now, probably never will. Basically it provides you with the opportunity to write a small paragraph or two summarising/introducing the full article, more info and where it is implemented/seen: http://codex.wordpress.org/Excerpt

    I think you should go to the HELP section of wordpress... they have a very comprehensive guide.

    You use Blogger because of tags and excerpt? Doesn't it function very similarly to Wordpress in this respect?

    Or are there other advantages of Blogger?

    Blogger is easier to use than Wordpress. Being a user friendly is a big factor in hosting a blog.
