Tumblr vs. Wordpress?

I have a tumblr that is getting decently popular. If I want to become more of an established blogger, do I need to use a different platform?

I mostly post quotes, short thoughts, pictures, etc. This is one of Tumblr's strengths, and I really like how simple it is to set up and customize things. I have a Wordpress blog, but I find all the behind the scenes stuff confusing. The lack of built-in community like I have with Tumblr is also frustrating.
However, I'm starting to write more original content on my Tumblr now, and if I want people to read my writing, they kind of have to dig around to find it amidst all the other stuff I post. I could easily start a new tumblr that's only for writing, but would I be better off just putting all my writing on my Wordpress blog and leaving the other stuff on Tumblr?
