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.
Sign out of your current Tumblr account. To sign out, click the Account icon, and then click Log Out.
Click the Sign Up link on the Tumblr Log In screen.
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.
Enter your age into the How old are you? field, check the box to confirm that you agree to the Tumblr Terms of Service, and then click Next. If prompted, perform the CAPTCHA verification to complete creating your new Tumblr account.
Click Skip on the Tumblr Welcome screen to go to your Tumblr dashboard. Any posts that you create get automatically posted on your primary blog.
Click the Account icon on your Tumblr dashboard, and then click Settings.
Click Create a New Blog under the Blogs section.
Insert a title and URL for your Tumblr blog. If required, check the box next to Password Protect This Blog to add password-protection to your blog. Complete the CAPTCHA verification, and then click Create Blog.
Switch between available blogs via the Account menu.
Tips & Warnings

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).
