Do you know Tumblr?
Well I discovered the app few months ago, it is a quite practical way to post images. Not necessarily good for blogging or posting big content. It is brief, simple. I always criticized the liberty and then the saturation on DeaviantArt pages, but still a free space to do whatever you want and get some good results.
There are still few bugs that this guys of Tumblr have to work on, to become a good app. Like fully support wide images, sounds from other apps, like SoundCloud, MixCloud or Spotify, support video previews they player doesn't work quite well.
Tumblr still a good try, but I think that Pinterest [] can offer what Tumblr has to offer, but Pinterest is more reliable.
What to do? I do like that I can add some text and the stream of images can be infinite, but it might look as a big trashcan! Even though is not like Pinterest where the saturation can become too noisy, even if you can arrange your images into "Sets" the page reminds a bit messy.
As one of my favorite illustrators wrote in a book, "you have to have a professional web site, have a good looking "professional" Facebook and a professional blog, etc. Do not underestimate the power of social networks. But have NOTHING if you don't update often". Sooo better to do not have one of these two apps cause they offer practically the same functionalities.  Actually this illustrator have a Tumblr and not a Pinterest account, so should be easy for me to choose.
What do you think? Any ideas? Would you be interested if have a Tumblr site or Pinterest? Do you have one already? And, which one can be really useful as a self-branding tool?

Multidisciplinary artist and illustrator based in Europe. Available for commissions.
