How to Get Another Tumblr Account

Save

Tumblr limits you to a single primary blog, though you can opt to create multiple secondary blogs. Your primary blog, however, receives exclusive social features that let you follow blogs, like posts, communicate with other Tumblr users, and more. To get another primary blog, you must create a new Tumblr account.

Identify your primary blog by its star-shaped icon.

Step 3

Enter an email address and password into the Email and Password fields; you must use a different email address each time when creating a new Tumblr account. Enter a username -- your username becomes the URL of your primary blog -- into the Username field, and then click Sign Up.

Using the same email address results in an error.

Tips & Warnings

  • Tumblr lets you change the URLs of your primary and secondary blogs via the Settings screen, accessible by clicking "Settings" on the Account menu. Select the blog that you want edit from the right pane, and then click the pencil-shaped "Edit" icon next to the Username (for your primary blog) or Tumblr URL (for secondary blogs).
  • Tumblr also lets you delete secondary blogs by clicking the "Delete Blog" button on the Settings screen. To delete your entire Tumblr account, however, select your primary blog, and then click "Delete Account." Deleting your Tumblr account also removes all secondary blogs associated with it.
