Tumblr's "Ask" feature lets you interact with your fellow Tumblr users and include those interactions as posts on your Tumblelog. Once you turn on the ask feature for your Tumblr account, you can receive messages in your inbox from anyone who has a Tumblr account. When you publish the answer to a question, the post includes the avatar of the person who asked and a link to her or her Tumblelog. As of 2011, there is no way to answer a question without publishing it to your Tumblelog.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Navigate to and log into your account.

  2. 2

    Click the "Messages" link in the left column to view your questions. If you have enabled submissions for your Tumblelog, they will also appear here.

  3. 3

    Locate the question you want to answer and click the "Answer" button in the top left corner of the white question box.

  4. 4

    Type your answer into the text field that appears. You can add links and images from URLs to your answer if desired.

  5. 5

    Click the "Publish" button to publish your answer to your Tumblelog. If you want to add tags to your question before publishing, click the "Queue" button, then click the "Queue" link in the left column of the page. Click the "Edit" link and add tags or set a publishing time to your answer.
