Happy Tuesday, friends! Well, I hope it’s a happy Tuesday for you!! It is for me because I have officially moved on from my hacked Instagram account! It took a while, but I’m regrouping…
First of all, I’m sure you’ve realized I’ve not been around here much lately. After my Instagram account Dellsdailydish got hacked, I admit I lost a little of my mojo. It was so frustrating that someone could steal my hard work in an instant. Not only that, but they are still posing as me and somehow still getting some of my current photos. And, they are messaging my old followers and trying to hack them too. And Instagram has not been any help AT ALL. And it has happened to more people than I care to know. According to Google, an IG creator’s account gets hacked every 10 minutes! Isn’t that ridiculous?
After the initial shock of it all and realizing that I was not getting my old account back, I created a new one and called it, “dell.dellsdailydish”. I changed my profile picture as well, but I think a lot of people were confused and a bit leary of following me again. So after about a month or so, I decided to make a completely fresh start! After consulting with my marketing and support team (aka my husband and children) together we came up with my new handle! It’s @dells.home.dujour
My talented daughter-in-law came up with the “DuJour” part as a nod to my old account. It means “of the day” in French. Also, I wanted to incorporate Dell, so folks would still know it’s me and then added home as well. What do you think? I think it has a ring to it! Plus I love that it’s all new and doesn’t remind me of my old account. Onward and upward! So, if you haven’t found my new account on IG yet, please give me a follow and let me know you’re new!
So, thank you, thank you to those of you that have been so supportive and followed along. Your words of encouragement and hope have gotten me through and made me want to start again! And if you haven’t already, please be sure to unfollow and block the old account (dellsdailydish) and report them to Instagram. Perhaps if they don’t have any followers they will just go away. (fingers crossed!)
Anyhow, now I plan to get back to blogging on a more regular basis so please stick with me! This Saturday my sisters and I are hosting a baby shower for our beautiful niece, Faith Elizabeth. We are still planning away and since we want it to be a surprise I’ll share it ALL with you after the fact! It’s going to be super fun because they don’t want to find out the sex of the baby until its born so it will be a gender neutral shower, which is first for us! So, stay tuned!
I hope y’all have the very best week and let’s chat again soon! And as Roy Rogers said, “until we meet again, I hope the good Lord takes a liking to you!” And me! Hugs, Dell
