October Photo A Day Challenge

October is almost here and it is time for the October Photo A Day Challenge! Who is ready for the next challenge? We would love to have you join us in the fun even if it is just a few photos here and there or every.single.day. The point is simply to have fun and challenge yourself to take some fun and creative photos.

If you are new here and have not played along, you can learn how to join us by reading some common questions that people usually have below.  We hope to have you join in the fun!


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!

    I like a lot of this month’s prompts. I will probably try to write blog posts about the some of the prompts, in addition to taking a picture. Thank you for this challenge!

    I just came across your blog while on Pinterest. I love it. I’ve been looking for writing prompts forever. I printed all of them and will start using them with my mom. It will help me to learn more about her then the basics like where were you born. Thank you so much. I can’t wait to get home and scrapbook these ideas.
