My Pinterest Was Deactivated DAYS After I Created My Blog Account

To begin this story, we have to jump way back to 2011. I was a junior in high school and Pinterest popped into existence in my tiny world. I was instantly hooked. I was on Pinterest for hours at a time, cracking myself up with funny posts and dreaming of a picture perfect one-day wedding. As I got into blogging back in 2015/2016 I started pinning my posts to that same account, obviously. As the years went on and I learned one thing and another about blogging, closed the first blog and started this one, I got better at Pinterest. And as 2022 came to be, I decided it was time to step away from that very first Pinterest account and create a more cohesive, professional account for this blog. It’s time to get serious, right?

I decided to pay $7 for a Pinterest course and got to work creating the new account and optimizing it to be a great source of audience for this blog. I was so darn excited as I watched it come together and started pinning my posts to my well thought out boards. I signed up for Tailwind (the free account, mama’s not crazy) and even created a whole folder of cohesive Pinterest templates for myself in Canva.

Then, on 2/2/22 I started looking into joining group boards to start growing my reach. I was on a roll, following different mama’s, discovering new boards, and requesting to join a few groups when I suddenly got an email:

That’s weird…I have been pinning my content and repining when I sat down at the end of the day, and repining a few things from the Tailwind Communities. I hadn’t even reached 30 pins yet, so how am I being spammy.

THE WHOLE FREAKING POINT OF PINTERST IS TO PIN AND REPIN I DON’T FREAKING UNDERSTAND WHAT IS SPAMMY?!?!?!?!

Okay, Kayla, chill chill chill.

Let’s submit a support ticket to figure this mess out.

I am going to loose my damn mind.

I KNOW I AM SUSPENDED THAT’S THE FREAKING REASON FOR THE SUPPORT TICKET.

We will see where this goes from here, stay tuned for this saga. I am SURE it is going to have many a twisting road.

Now I am going to go read Pinterest’s community guidelines while I watch HSM2 and wait for a response.
