I HAVE A NEW INSTAGRAM

Follow my NEW Instagram: @thelastsouvenir 

Yes, I have a new Instagram account. Some of you may be thinking "why?" and I thought the exact same thing when I came home from work one day and found that my original account had been deleted. I'm still not entirely sure why they decided to delete it. I was a bit miffed because I had just reached 1000 followers this month as well! Apparently I violated a term of use but I have literally no idea what could have sparked that - unless, of course, some bitter troll just wanted to report a load of my photographs for no reason... You would think that Instagram would at least notify you to warn of any reported content instead of just deleting the account outright, wouldn't you? But no! Either way, I started a brand new account today so I thought I would let you all know that. In a way it's a bit better because the username is the same as my blog (@thelastsouvenir) so people will hopefully be able to find me a bit more easily.

I've calmed down about the whole episode but, my god, I was fuming and very confused as to what had happened. And I'm still none the wiser! I'm looking at this whole debacle as a chance to reinvent my account a little bit and maybe become one of those themed Instagrams. I'm not sure how long I'll keep it up - there's got to be something that messes up the grid, am I right? But I'm going to give it a good go nonetheless!

So yes, apologies if I'm not following you anymore... Apparently I no longer exist! It would be fantastic if you guys could leave your Instagram links in the comments, just so I can get reacquainted with your accounts. Also it would be lovely and very much appreciated if you could spread the word about my new account, especially if you liked it and would like to see more little life snippets in the future.

  1. This is awful! Is there nothing you can do? Still, I'm so glad you're able to be positive about it! x

    1. I've tried emailing Instagram directly and have had no response! Looked on their help pages and it basically says once an account has been deleted there's no way to get it back! Bit annoying really! Xx

  2. I think I would be devastated if such a thing was ever to happen to my instagram account. Your instagram was one of my favourites in recent times so I am sad to hear it is gone, but now you can just fill our feeds with lovely pictures.

    Instagram has been so odd lately. My account followers got glitched I went up from 313 to 390 and back down again. There was also a load of nude pictures under the hashtag bbloggers. I think it's ridiculous that your account got deleted and that stuff like that has happened.

    My instagram is @fishnetsxd if you want to follow.
    I am sure you will go up in followers fairly quick now :)

    Ellen,

    1. I was pretty devastated at first, believe me! Aw thank you Ellen, so nice of you to say! Hopefully I'll still be bringing you nice photography on my new account though - just hope this one doesn't get deleted for no reason too! Xx

  3. As if they'd do that without any warning whatsoever! That's so annoying!

  5. I can't believe they don't tell you why! How will you ever know not to do whatever rule-violating thing you did?

    I'm at @hanoverandpearl if you want to find me!

    1. Exactly! How do I know what I did wrong so I don't accidentally do it again on this new one? Haha! Xx

  7. You think they would view the account (if it was a troll) prior to deleting! Like come on at least verify that the content is actually violating their terms...

    1. Exactly! And there's some right sad people out there who probably thought it would be funny to just delete it! Xx

  8. Sorry to hear your account got deleted, its quite odd that they didn't even notify you!

  12. That's completely out of order, especially if as far as you're aware you did nothing wrong and they didn't even give you a warning first. I don't have many followers on mine but I'd be furious if they did it to me! Heading over now to follow you x

  13. It's absolutely rubbish how they can just delete your account without warning or explanation - least you can start fresh I suppose :(
    I've just dropped you a follow - I'm chloexlogan :)
