I know I am not the only one who is experiencing problems with Instagram right now. But this time I really had to make a decision. Should I use my back-up account and start from scratch again? So this is a little update about my Instagram account and why did I get blocked on Instagram?
It started last week
It started a week ago. I wanted to follow another blogger on Instagram and I got blocked. I was surprised and I had no idea why I got blocked. But I thought Instagram was down again. The next day I tried to follow her again, still, it didn’t work. And now it is been 9 days ago that I got blocked on Instagram. I can’t do anything but unfollowing people. And I seriously have tried everything. I reported it and I sent a dm to Instagram. I asked for help and they didn’t answer it.
But after 9 days it is really annoying that you can’t do anything on Instagram but unfollowing. That is not how social media platforms work right? I went to Twitter and I searched for people who were experiencing the same thing. I found a lot of people who got also blocked by Instagram.
So, now what?
First of all, I think it ridiculous that Instagram is not answering their dm’s or emails. I tried using my back-up account and that one is still working, thank god.
So I decided to use that account. I used that account to follow people and plan my feed. But now it is going to be my main account. I don’t like that I had 26K followers on my other account and now I only have 600. But it also kind of feels good. Maybe it was a sign of the universe that I needed a fresh start. I was already thinking about posting more positivity on my account again.
Every now and then I still check if my old account gets unblocked but for now, I don’t think it will happen.
So follow me on Instagram and leave your Instagram link or handle in the comments so I can check yours out too.
