Flour vs. Corn Tortillas?

I was halfway finished inhaling a homemade cheese and bean burrito with Johnnycakes when I realized I forgot to take a photo for the blog. I was starving after a trip to the gym and grocery store and I couldn't eat soon enough.
I did get to thinking about how I was loving the soft chewy flour tortilla and how I only recently began eating the flour variety after years of buying corn tortillas. I think I first got started on the corn kind when I heard they were a little healthier since they contained more fiber and less calories. I also liked their versatility for making taco shells and tortilla chips. They are also dirt cheap and last forever! The downside to corn tortillas is that they are usually small because they are not as pliable as a flour tortilla and tend to tear easily.
For a little while, I started buying some of the whole wheat tortillas because they were larger than the corn ones and some brands have very few calories. Despite those positives, the taste was usually lacking in the whole wheat varieties and that is strange coming from me because I usually love anything whole wheat.
Then one day recently, Johnnycakes bought good old fashioned flour tortillas. At first, I was resistant but once I tried one I was hooked! I realized that you just can't substitute that flavor, texture and taste. I was also happy to see that the rather large tortilla, probably around 8 inches in diameter, was only around 150 calories and contained a few grams of fiber. I was sold instantly. I even purchased some myself after we finished the first pack.
So which do you like? Flour or Corn? Or something else? I'm curious!

Definitely flour! Something about the way they become "squishy" when filled with ooey gooy chicken enchilada ingredients. I use 10-inch flour tortillas (ha, I say if you're gonna cook, go all out!) and you'd never see that in a corn. And I agree with you on corn's fragility.

I like flour tortillas for tacos and such and corn tortilla chips for dips.

The corn tortillas they sell at the tortilla factory on eastern avenue cannot be beat. It totally converted me.

I found a really good flour tortilla recipe here: http://www.howtodothings.com/food-drink/how-to-make-flour-tortillas and when they're homemade, they're my favorite!

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is needed to get setup? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
I'm not very web savvy so I'm not 100% sure. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
