How To Reactivate a Deleted Tumblr Account

Kelsie Asked:

Is there anyway possible that my account could be reactivated again? I have accidentally deleted it ):
I tried to make a new account under the one i originally had. Obviously i didnt know what i was doing so i tried to delete the new one i made but deleted my original account instead. I would really appreciate it if you could do anything to get my account reactivated.

Since when you click on the link “Delete Account” you a huge screen that says:

“Permanently delete your account….Are you sure you want to permanently delete your Tumblr Account, your blog, and all of your posts”

How To Reactive Tumblr Account

This is why we are certainly sure that is almost impossible to get your deleted tumblr account back, even if you shut it down by mistake. You can, however, give it a try and send a email to telling them in detail why did you actually disabled your Tumblr account and what are the reasons to reactivate it.

    Umm i was just on my tumblr and all of a sudden i tried clicking on something and it wouldnt let me sign in or anything. I think one of my “friends” may have done it cause shes the only one who knows my password and ya shes been acting strange the last few days. Anywho i want to reactivate it and with a differnet password plz?

    I deleted my Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr, for silly reasons, and realized I could only get my Facebook and Twitter back. I have tried a hundred different ways, different websites, to try and get it back. For me, Tumblr is more than a social media platform, to me it is a way to vent my angers and depression in a non-violent way. It helps me get everything out without hurting anyone in the process. Is there anyway, anyway at all, that my Tumblr can be reactivated? If so, please e-mail me at the e-mail enclosed.

    Thank you for your time,

    I didn’t mean to delete my Tumblr.. It was just because of all the hate I was getting.. I was frustrated and I honestly thought you could reactivate it afterwards.. Plus, I was finally at 2k followers. :c

    I tried to delet my account to open a new one. I pressed delet but it said that the email was incorrect (It wasn’t) & that i was unable to. So I thought that i’d make the best of it & continue to make the current one better. (I had just started that account that evening, my first attempt at blogging.)
    So i did my first blog pressed save & it said that it was an invalid account. I have no blog. When I go to it (Blog) it says it’s deleted. Yet i’m unable to delet it & make a new one…it won’t let me & I can’t make a new one because it says there is one already in that name. I’m stuck & desperately want a blog. Please re-connect it or allow me to start again.
    I can’t even seem to login anymore…….saying errors on page. HELP
