How to See What You've Asked on Tumblr

Whether you ask questions on other user’s blogs with your Tumblr username or anonymously, Tumblr doesn’t provide you with a record of past questions on your account. A question can only be seen again if the owner of the blog where you asked it chooses to provide you with an answer. When that happens, the question appears after the words “[Username] asked” or “Anonymous asked” in a private message or public post.

Check the Inbox

If a blog owner opts to answer your question privately, he will do so through Tumblr’s messaging system. On your Dashboard, click the envelope icon and scan any new messages in your inbox.

Review the Blog

When a blog owner chooses to publicly post your question and his answer to it, you must review his posts to find it. Go to the specific blog where you asked your question and scroll down through the most recent posts.


Anonymous questions are not attached in any way to a Tumblr account. If you submit a question anonymously and the blog owner chooses to answer it, you can only find it posted publicly.
