Tumblr is a social networking site where you can express your thoughts, ideas and make interactions with multiple persons. It is just like Facebook or Twitter, free to use and requires you to create an account with it. Once you sign up with Tumblr, you can upload photos, videos, text, link and many more in your profile. All your posts are visible to others under your username created at the time of sign up. If you want to change your username on your Tumblr, it is very simple and straightforward.
Changing Tumblr username will also change your Tumblr URL. If any of your followers had bookmarked your posts for instant access, the URL of the post will not work when your username is changed. In case you had uploaded a post or image with your URL as a watermark, you will have to change the URL and re-upload the post again in your Tumbler blog.
