    I'm starting a new very simple site. Without giving away too much, the main goal of the site is for people to be shocked by the images and want to share it with their friends. I'm familiar with wordpress, but I'm also looking into Tumblr right now as it seems to fit my simplistic needs. I will be hosting this domain on my own host. Have any of you used Tumblr? I realize there are many factors to having a viral site, but would you think Tumblr would work best? The majority of visitors will be coming from social media sites and some from SEO.

    I'd appreciate any advice or suggestions. Thanks and rep will be given.

    Shock sites are hilarious :D

    Anyways, I am sure tumblr would be good if you want to make an image site but WordPress has plenty of image gallery themes + plugins as well.

    Thanks download! Does anyone know if tumblr has as good seo tools as wordpress? It seems as though tumblr is very simple, I've just always gone with wordpress. I think I'm willing to try something new though. Just wanted to see if anyone had good or bad past experiences with tumblr.

    Tumblr might be good but I did not use it still now. I have been used Wordpress and there is also lots of good images themes and image gallery plugins. I want to suggest for wordpress.
