Help with my LinkedIn issue
The issue in GetHuman-theahey's own words
I'm a retired social worker and a writer.I've used a Linkedin account for years with my pen name Thea Heying. I cancelled my account a week or so ago, because I want to start over (with the same name.)**I'd like to begin again with Thea Heying and create a new profile, with new contact numbers. I now have a website, theaheying.com. **When I tried to start this new version of Thea Heying I received the message the name was already in use.**I haven't used Linkedin much in the past, but I would like to start. I have a book proposal I want to promote.**I'm sorry if this is a pain for Linkedin. You have been faithful in getting updates out to me, and everything you've communicated is professional. It's the kind of message I'd like *to be sending.*Can you help me get this straight?**Thank you,*Dorothy Vogelsburg-Heying, AKA Thea Heying
