You Can’t Follow other Tumblr blogs from a secondary blog

This seems to be one of the silliest, yet easiest to fix limitations on Tumblr.  Turns out to be that you can’t follow other people’s Tumblr blogs from your secondary Tumblr blog.  This has been confirmed to be true by an Tumblr employee.

I guess that if you are considering to have niche Tumblrs you’d better open a different account for each, you can’t be expected to follow a religious blog from a weapons specialized tumblelog.

The thing gets even more serious if you consider that you can’t set up group Tumblr blogs as your main Tumblelog.  Meaning that one of the main Tumblr functionalities, meaning following !, is unavailable to multiusers.

    Hey, I didn’t know that.
    You’re right, It’s really silly that you can’t follow users from same account but different blogs, but it doesn’t bother me because I don’t use multi blogs, I have just only one tumblr blog .

    Thanks for the useful information,

    Thanks for clarifying- I set up a second blog and was baffled by this! Tumblr, get on it: surely this can be worked around??

    I found away. Have the blog who you are trying to follow send you a message. Open the message and there will be a little I on there icon click and it will say Follow Ask Fan Mail just hit follow
