June Photo A Day 2014

Here we go again!  You guys have to forgive me for my TERRIBLE participation in May’s Photo A Day Challenge.  I started out the month on a vacation with the hubby and took a much needed break from technology.  But, it kind of set me off on the wrong foot and my participation was very lacking.  I am looking forward to starting this new challenge off with a fresh start!

Are you ready to see who some of my favorites were this month?  As always, I could choose a LOT more photos to feature but have to limit myself to just 12.  Here are May’s features…

June’s Photo Challenge prompts are below! Can’t wait to see what you come up with for the next month! I love to see how everyone interprets them so differently!

June-Photo-A-Day


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?

Sorry this took me so long to get up this month.  I usually like to have it up and ready a couple of days before the new month…but I had a little accident last night and pulled my peroneal tendon (apparently).  So I was unable to get this posted till now.

I have an appointment to see a specialist next Wednesday for an exact diagnosis.  So….until then, this boot is my new best friend and most likely will be for some time to come.  Welcome Summer…right?  Anyways, I will keep you updated!

Here is the June Photo-a-Day Challenge for those of you who are going to be playing along.

January Photo-A-Day 2013

Did you play along with us in December?  Or did you fizzle out in the third week…like I did?  Ha!  No worries.  January is a new month.  Come join us again.  It has been so fun to see all of your fun pictures and to get to know some of you a little bit better!

So if you have not played along with us before, no worries…it is really easy to join in the fun. If you miss a day…or two…or 16…it really isn’t a big deal. Just join in when you can. The point is to get you taking pictures and recording those everyday moments in your life. If you don’t like the photo prompt for the day, use your own!

photo-a-day

To play along simply take a photo and post it to one of your social media sites.  I use Instagram to post mine too and then sometimes share them on Facebook and TwitterPlease use the hashtag #idearoom to tag your photos.  This will then add your photo to the list of photos under the #idearoom hashtag.  If you click on the “#idearoom” it will pull up everyone’s photos who are playing along.  So you can see all the fun things The Idea Room readers are sharing.

If you want me to follow along with you personally, feel free to leave your Instagram name here and I am happy to follow.  I look forward to playing along with you in January!

Who is going to join us?

December Photo-A-Day

I am not sure why I feel compelled to come up with another Photo-A-Day Challenge for Instagram series since I failed miserably on November’s #gratefulgram.  Ha!  But in my defense, my daughter was in a local production of The Nutcracker.  We had a great time and loved being a part of it, but as a mom…well, you know how those kinds of things can be…!

image

We were supposed to be at the auditorium every night for dress rehearsals and performances for a 6 days straight.  So needless to say, I cut everything that was unnecessary from my life for a couple of weeks so I could take care of things here at home and be where I needed too.

And now that it is over, and life has resumed somewhat “normally” I thought it would be fun to issue another photo challenge…this time for December!  If you want to play along, you are always welcome to join us.

No pressure.  If you miss a day…or two…or 16…it really isn’t a big deal.  Just join in when you can.  The point is to get you taking pictures and recording those everyday moments in your life.  If you don’t like the photo prompt for the day, use your own!

As you can see…I didn’t quite get everyday this past month…but that is okay.  Just get what you can.  I totally quit the last week of June as we headed out of town and I totally spaced checking to even see what the challenges were for each day.  You do what you can right?

So…if you would like to play along with us in July…which we are already several days into…(yes…I am behind…vacations have a way of doing that to me!!) I am sharing the topics here for you.

image

So…are you going to be playing along?  My name on Instagram is theidearoom.  I would love to follow you too!  It is a fun way for me to get to know some of my readers a bit better!

photo a day challenge

I have seen all these fun instagram photos from my friends all over the internet lately and was feeling a bit of iphone envy. But I recently found out that instagram now has an android phone app.  So I signed up and decided to jump on the instagram band wagon.  The main reason I decided to do this is because even though I take a LOT of pictures weekly, they are usually of stuff I have made but not my family.  Ummm….hello!  Something seems really backwards about that.

image

So I am hoping that this will be a way to help encourage me to record my daily FAMILY life and help me to document the everyday moments.  There are a few different “Photo a Day” sites around but I decided to follow FatMumSlim’s Photo a Day series.

You simply take a photo each day of the item listed and share it on instagram.  This has been such a fun way for me to get to know others a bit more and get a peek into their daily life.  If you would like to follow along my instagram name is theidearoom.

I also share a lot of other random photos here that are not part of this #PhotoADay challenge.  I also found a great way to view your instagram pictures and the pictures of the people you follow called Pinstagram.

I have not the been the best at making sure I post them EVERY. SINGLE. DAY…but I am getting better and having a lot of fun with it.

I would love to share at the end of the month all the photos and then have you link up your photos if you want to play along with me.  What do you think?

Since it is not the end of the month quite yet, I thought I would post this to give you some time to decide whether you would like to follow along and/or join in the fun!  I will update the pictures for the rest of the month when I have them.

Then I will also share the June Photo-A-Day topics.  Sound fun?  I hope you will join us!  Also…if you join us I would love to follow YOU! Leave your instagram name in a comment so I can follow you.
