April 2013 Photo-A-Day challenge

I have had a crazy, busy week and had hoped to get the April Photo-A-Day challenge photo prompts up a bit earlier.  But at least I got it before April started…so that is good news right?!

Are you going to be playing along? Are you re-joining us from the past Monthly Photo Challenges?  Are you joining in the for the first time?  Do you have no clue what I am talking about?  No problem…anyone can join in the fun.  All the “rules and guidelines” are spelled out below.  I look forward to seeing what you share and getting to know you a bit better!

What is exactly is photo-a-day you say?
Every month I share with you some photo prompts or suggestions for each day of the month.  You can play along by taking a picture of your interpretation of the prompt (or come up with your own if you don’t like it).

How do I play along?
You can share your photos through any of the social media platforms: Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, your Blog, Flickr, etc.

You can tag me @theidearoom on your social media sites too if you want me to be able to see it!  I love to see what my readers are sharing!  It makes my day!

Simply add the hashtag #theidearoom so that the rest of us who are playing can follow along and we can all see your photos.

What is a hashtag and how does it work?  A hashtag is the pound sign (#) followed by a word of short phrase (without a space) that describes or classifies your tweet or photo on Twitter or Instagram.  If you click on a hashtag you will be taken to a list of tweets or pictures all containing the same hashtag.

How can I see other people’s photos?
Once you’ve shared your own photo, and included the hashtag #theidearoom, simply click on the the hashtag.  You will be taken to a screen with everyone’s photos who have also added #theidearoom hashtag.  Go ahead and comment and like each other’s photos.  This way everyone has fun!

What if you forget a day…or 2…or 20?
Not a big deal…really! Just start up again.  You can play catch up, or just start again.  No one will care…I promise.  Heck…I skipped plenty of days when life got too crazy and the prompts are mine!!  Share with your friends and family!  Have fun.  The point is to get you to record your everyday moments.  To capture a small snapshot of your day.

But remember…The Idea Room is a family friendly site!  Let’s keep it that way people!

    Dumb question… My FB is set to private. If I add @theidearoom to a post, does that make it so you can see it too? Or does my FB have to be public for that?

      Not a dumb question. If you are private we can not see your photo. But if you tag me in it, I can see a tiny little thumbnail photo but usually I can not make out much. No one else but your friends will be able to see it. You can still play along if you are private. Not a big deal. Just fun to have people join in if they want so they can share it with their friends!
