How to Send Messages on Tumblr

Save

The popular microblogging site Tumblr provides several ways for users to message one another on the site. Fan Mail allows you to send a private message directly to another blogger in a manner similar to email. The Ask option, when enabled, allows you to ask a question; depending on the blogger's settings, this may be done anonymously, without revealing your name, and questions may be published on the blog for others to read.

You can send up to 500 messages per day.
