    Your question is too broad and it is also the wrong question. A Wordpress hosted blog and a Tumblr blog will naturally have different benefits and drawbacks that affect your content but the platform itself doesn't inherently matter that much. You can be successful using any platform you like. Using one platform over another is unlikely to (by itself) affect how popular you are, providing you put the right content on the right platform.

    Out of the two, I'd say Tumblr.

    Why not both? There's this thing called copy and paste - you might've heard of it?

    Sarcasm aside, since you're just starting out, you can post on both.

    The benefits of Wattpad over Tumblr is that you can write for longer, and whenever you want, allowing for deeper, more meaningful interactions. As with Tumblr, most of the time you'd have to wait until people ask you for advice, thus restricting your motivational/inspirational abilities.

    The benefits of Tumblr over Wattpad is that you can reach a wider range of people, since it's more popular than Wattpad. Plus, it's just generally easier to 'make it' on Tumblr than Wattpad.

    That being said neither of those platforms are ideal, since Wattpad is mainly focused on fictional writing, and Tumblr is... well it's Tumblr. It'd be incredibly difficult for you to become popular no matter what platform you're using, and that's just because of the state of the internet right now.

    Blogging is my true hobby!
    I cannot live a day without writing my blog. I'm not a professional blogger though, I work on improving the look of my blog and the tips from https://studioblackbelt.com help a lot.
