May Photo-a-day 2014

What 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! Want to play along?

    policies which may facilitate.

    Thus, this Mother\’s Day, most of us tend to on the Nation’s Alliance for women & People ar brooding about
    many brand new mail messages connected with emotion with regard to America\’s
    mums — versions which larger looking glass this tremendous
    activity it\’s to become a single right now:

    as well as education and learning stage ar accounted pertaining to.

    that’s why you want this verify Justness Act, which could fight hazardous discriminatory shell out routines within our
    nation\’s office buildings.

    \”For performing your complete very best in a really region where ever young ladies ar nevertheless released or perhaps required outside of their work with regard to turning out to be expecting… cheers, Mommy. \” 6
    in ten women EXACTLY WHO supply labor and birth in a really annual quantity furthermore work in the course of that period, nonetheless expectant personnel ar
    even now required from the work simply by employers which won’t make these individuals cost-effective lodging
    — similar to holding any jar – that may make it possible for those to go on managing.

    to prevent this blatant elegance.

    s. is 1 in every entirely a number of expresses that doesn\’t assure compensated depart with
    regard to fresh mothers. purely 12 r. c regarding particular
    field staff members gain access to compensated loved ones get away from as well as exclusively fourty v.
    chemical on the personnel is eligible for compensated professional
    medical abandon. it\’s free time pastime for the nationwide settled get away from
    insurance policies plan.

    These kind of messages — and that they quite solely the begining
    the surface of the troubles America\’s working moms confront —
    underscore this great strength along with resilience of mother EXACTLY WHO store careers
    on this land. nevertheless they moreover uncover a new stark and also unsatisfactory fact:
    most of us tend to ar far from making sure that parents
    your equal rights, sincere remedy and also help they will merit.

    The good thing is, a few states carry out greater.

    Recently, the National Relationship dismissed a written report, Wanting greater,
    particularization this regulations several declares get enacted for you
    to load the interruptions within national standards.
    we all believe in which at the very least seven claims need
    to have several employers to create reasonably priced rooms to expectant staff members.
    and that many of us ar viewing unimaginable traction all-around and also support intended
    for settled unwell days plans. simply in the 1 week, the particular the big
    apple authorities authorized a are living to make sure just about 1, 000, 000 workers the correct to be able
    to generate compensated sick days and nights. This specific historic
    activity builds on the achievement associated with paid sick days and nights regulations that exist witout
    a doubt with Connecticut, S . fransisco, Wa, N. H., town and,
    soon, Portland, Or.

    Yet the patchwork associated with procedures isn\’t the answer running moms wants
    — as well as merit. merely imagine: Would associates connected with Congress become ready
    to deliver these types of mail messages for their mums? Next exactly why are not proposals
    identical to the verify Justness React, this Pregnant employees
    Fairness Act, this Nutritious Family members Act as well as a countrywide
    paid loved ones along with health care leave insurance coverage system among their particular highest points?

    This particular Mother\’s Morning, let\’s suppose the actual $64000 messages we\’re causation parents by means of unable to
    find out your family welcoming operate requirements they have.

    And let\’s firmly insist that lawmakers do one thing relating to the item.
