- Find a post around the time you want to go back to. A good place to use is your own blog.
- Take the post number. It’s the long string of numbers in a posts link. e.g. http://paralysedbeaver.tumblr.com/post/23397617633 becomes 23397617633
- Place that number at the end of this: tumblr.com/dashboard/2/[PLACE NUMBERS HERE]. Remove the square brackets.
