February Photo-a-Day Challenge 2014

It’s here!!  I have had several of you asking for the new challenge and I am happy to say it is here! I thought I would change things up a bit and that it would be fun for me to highlight some of YOUR photos from each challenge.  So I kept an eye out and picked just a few of them to highlight here from January’s Photo-a-Day Challenge. photoaday features labels square

Some great photos everyone! I love seeing what you share even if I can’t like or comment on all of them.  I usually scroll through them! 

*If your photo is here and would rather it not be…please let me know and I will remove it!

Joining us for the first time? Here are some questions and answers that might be helpful to you.  We hope you will join us!


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!

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.


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.
