Can I unfollow myself for them somehow?

I have a follower on Tumblr I would much rather not have. Can I make them unfollow me somehow on my end? From what I can see "blocking" them does pretty much nothing. I just dont want to show up on their dash anymore. Any way or clever workarounds so that I can make that happen?

I don't think there's any way that would make this stick. They can always just make a new account, right?

Blocking them should make it so you don't show up on their dash. I think that's essentially what it does.

They are still going to be able to see your blog unless you password-protect it..

Block and change the tumblr name so they can't find you again?

Seconding password protection.

Tumblr isn't particularly well set up for filtering who can see your content, alas.

Even if you block them, they can still follow your RSS feed as long as your blog is public (not password-protected). I do this with a couple of blogs that are actual blog-type written blogs that just happen to be posted on tumblr. Thirding password protection.

If the Tumblr is publicly-viewable, no. Even if you could somehow block their account from viewing yours, all they'd have to do is log out.

Password-protection seems like the only way to do this.
