Ok, so as you may be aware, my previous Instagram account for this blog @thenudeblogger was abruptly deactivated almost two weeks ago now. I have fought tooth and nail to get it back and to get some traction on the issue of body positivity and the double standards that social media exacerbates, but I am yet to hear a thing back from Instagram. So in the meantime, I have launched a secondary account @thenudeblogger_ in the event that I don’t see my previous account restored.
No, this does NOT mean I have given up on trying to get my message out there, not by any means! I am still working my ass off behind the scenes to shed light on this matter. Like I have said before, my efforts will not be in vain. I am doing my best to be heard loud and clear. This is all unchartered territory for me, so I am trying to work smart.
I worked hard for almost ten months building my previous Instagram account and setting the foundations for my blog, so whilst it stings a little and my wounds are still fresh, I just have to keep on keepin’ on. Starting fresh, but with more vigour than ever! Here’s to round 2!
Please show some love and head on over to my new Instagram account @thenudeblogger_ or just simply click the Instagram social media icon anywhere on my website!
I would kindly ask that you please also share this article to get the word out there that I am back on the Instagram scene!
Thank you so much to all of you who have sent me kind messages full of encouragement and enthusiasm. I am so grateful to those of you who have reached out offering to help, offering your services. This means more to me than you know. Thank you to those of you who have taken the time and made the effort to share my posts and messages. Your support and feedback are invaluable. Your support is what makes all of this so much more worthwhile, so much more worth fighting for. This incident has ignited a even bigger flame within me, and has also helped me to see those who also share a GENUINE interest in the message of body positivity.
This has never been about a popularity contest, nor did I allow the growing following to get to my head. Sadly, there seems to be a little politics involved amongst some pages that claim to be about body positivity. I refuse to get caught up in it all. For me, this has truly been about sharing the message of body positivity and the deep-rootedness of the matter at hand.
I’m excited to share with you all some of the upcoming posts that I am currently working on that really get down to the nitty gritty of body positivity. Many issues surrounding body positivity and much confusion around the matter have arisen as a result of this deactivation, and it has motivated me to write even more! So something good has already come of it!
With our collective effort and genuine interest in the matter of body positivity and naturism, I know we will make a difference, raise awareness and help to change perceptions on nudity for the better.
United we stand!
