August Photo-A-Day Challenge 2013

Another month…another Photo-A-Day Challenge.  Who is up for another month?  Have you been playing along with us previously? If not, it is always easy to join in the fun.  Simply read the “rules” below and come and play.  We would love to have you.  Be sure to follow along @theidearoom on Instagram!

August 2013 Photo-A-Day Challenge

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 BlogFlickr, 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!

Photo-A-day august challenge

Okay… my attempt at the Photo A Day Challenge for July was pathetic…haha!  I did manage to get 6 out of 31 days.  That is better than zero…right?!  I was crazy busy this last month and this just fell by the wayside.  But that is okay.  Looking forward to getting back on track for August since I have a lot less commitments and should be able to enjoy the rest of the summer here with my kids.

What about you?  How did you do?  Want to continue to play along?  Or join in for the first time?  Here is the challenge for August.


Fat Mum Slim’s Photo-A-Day August #photoadayaug


Just take a picture with Instagram and then share on your favorite Social Media (I share mine mainly on my Instagram account theidearoom, and occasionally on my Twitter or Facebook accounts). Be sure to use the hashtag #photoadayaug so that others playing can follow along as well.

Here’s to hoping I can do a better job this month!  I also have loved seeing what the rest of you are up too.  It has been fun to see that you crazy followers are actually real people!  So…who is going to be playing along with us this time?
