    I’ve done all this, but when I go onto members it only says my first tumblr blog, not my second one, which is the one I wish to delete.

    It’s not listing your main blog, it’s listing your USERNAME for your TUMBLR ACCOUNT, which happens to be the same name for your main tumblr blog!

    It’s not your main blog, it’s listing your USERNAME for your TUMBLR ACCOUNT, which happens to be the same name for your main tumblr blog!

    Ok so whenever i try to delete my second blog my original blog comes up and next to it is “Leave This blog”.
    Is this telling me to leave my secondary blog or my primary case my primary is the one shown?
    I think it’s secondary but I’m afraid i’ll accidentally delete my primary :/


    Mr. Tumblr Reply:

    No, only your secondary blog will be deleted, what comes up is not your original blog’s name, but your username for tumblr, that applies to you main blog as well.

    Following these instructions, when I get to the “Leave This Blog” step, the main blog is listed, not the secondary blog I want to delete. Is this working as designed, my misunderstanding, or a bug?


    Mr. Tumblr Reply:

    You are not going to the secondary blog I guess, and yes, your username will come up since it’s related to all your blogs.

    so the blog that your the only member in will get deleted ? so that means no win then ? because you loose your first blog, the main one … D: its a loss – loss then .. isnt there a way to only delete your second blog and not your main one ?

    I made a blog and then added another. I want to delete the first one. (For some reason the second one became admin). I am the only user on both. With the first blog, I don’t have the “Members” option!!! Does this mean that my very first blog is impossible to delete?!

    mine doesn’t say ‘Leave this blog’ it says ‘Delete this blog’ which is referring to my main one. I’m scared it got changed so that whenever i click that, it will delete my main blog :c

    I did all this and I was the only member, so instead of Leave This Blog it said Delete, so I clicked on it and it said that the page was Not Found. What should I do? Why does this happen? After I go back to my dshboard the secodary blog still exists so it’s not being deleted!

    I’ve done all the steps but where it says enter the url you want to delete and I enter mine, I always get this message : “Please confirm the name of the blog you would like to delete.” even when I’ve already filled it out. Why is this happening?
