If you want to change the URL of you blog the only people that can do that is the owner the of DNS server that your URL is registered with. That is usually the hosting service for the blog, in this case Tumbler So you need to contact Tumbler ask them to change their DNS to post to youe new URL to the location of your new blog.

In effect set up a completely new blog altogether. On these hosted services you are generally stuck with the URL given to you and changing it is usually not an option as everything is under the control of the host.

Most of these hosted services do allow you to use your own domain name which may be an option.

Another work around may be to add some custom JavaScript that redirects your old blog to your new blog.
