Has it been a chore to maintain your multiple social media accounts across the Internet? Perhaps your Tumblr blog, or “Tumblog,” has become too cluttered after posting about all your favorite films, TV series, and idols. Wouldn’t you want a new and more organized blog? Delete your Tumblr account and start afresh!
It might seem like a big move, but starting over is pretty simple. It’s almost as easy as refreshing a web page!
What Happens if you Delete your Tumblr Account?
Once your account has been deleted, you will lose all text posts, photos, videos, and the followers you’ve gained. But don’t worry, you aren’t completely gone from the Tumblr community! Other users might have been inspired by some of your posts and “re-blogged” them. These posts will continue to appear on people’s dashboards with your blog title labeled as “deactivated”.
You may use the same e-mail address linked to your deleted account for your new Tumblr account. Think of it as closing a tab and opening a new one — you’re still using the same window!
