Tumblr allows you to communicate with other users through Fan Mail and reblogging, but it also allows you to set up a link to a Web page where users and anonymous visitors can ask you questions directly from your blog. The questions then appear on your Tumblr account's Messages screen where you have the option to answer them publicly or privately with text, images, links or a combination of response types. To set up the Ask feature, you will need to access your blog’s Settings screen.

Step 1

Go to your Tumblr dashboard and click the gear icon to go to your Tumblr account's Settings page.

Step 2

Pick the name of the blog you want to customize with an Ask link and page to go to its Settings screen.

Step 3

Click the “Let People Ask Questions” box in the Ask section to turn on the feature.

Step 4

Type a word or phrase for the Ask page link text, such as “Ask," "Messages," "Ask Section" or “Ask me anything!,” in the “Ask Page Title” field.

Step 5

Scroll up to the top of the Settings screen, or down to the bottom, and click the “Save” button.

Step 6

Confirm the setup. Go to your Tumblr blog and look for the "Ask" page link.
