How to Log Out of Tumblr

Tumblr updates its blogging platform periodically and sometimes changes its user interface; the developers may change the position of various elements, such as the Log Out and Log In buttons. However, Tumblr always provides the means to log in and out of the system.

Logging In on Tumblr

Step

Open Tumblr in your favorite Web browser and click the Log In button. If you don't have a Tumblr account, fill the Sign Up form and click Sign Up to create a new account.
