April photo a day list! Join in!

Hello! Happy Monday. I’m fighting a case of the post-holiday, back-to-work blues today. How are you?

To help beat those pesky blues, I am revealing the April photo a day list {I’d planned to do it tomorrow, but why wait?}. For those that don’t know, or if you’re new here today {welcome!}, each month I reveal a list of prompts for people who like to take photos. Each number corresponds with the date of the month, and you take a photo to match the prompt. There are no hard and fast rules, you can stick closely to the prompt or just use it as inspiration and have your imagination run wild.

Some people have played every month so far, some will be starting for the first time in April, some have done one month and skipped others. There are no rules – so jump in and out whenever you like.

Please note: I have changed the hashtag this month. So many other people have jumped on the bandwagon and are making their own lists with the same hashtag we use, so I’ll be changing it each month. For April the hashtag will be #photoadayApril, and that way we’ll be able to see the photos of people doing the same list as us.

To give an example on how to use the prompts, for the first one ‘your reflection’ you could take a photo of yourself in the mirror or take a more abstract picture with a reflection of you in the toaster, or your hand in the car side mirror.

Once you’ve taken a photo for the day you can upload it to Facebook {and share with your friends}, upload to Twitter {and use the hashtag #photoadayApril}, share on Instagram {again use the hashtag #photoadayApril}, share on your blog, or Tumblr or even Pinterest. Or share on all platforms. There is a great community sharing photos, so it’s great to share socially so you can be part of the community.

You can find me on: Instagram | Facebook | Twitter | Pinterest

Feel free to save the image and share it on any of the platforms. You can even upload it to Instagram and share it with your friends. Have fun!

For those that asked, here’s the list in wallpaper size so you can save it on your iPhone and see the list easily daily.

Will you be playing along this month? If so, where will you be sharing your photos?

P.s. Thank you to everyone who suggested prompts for future lists. You’re all superstars. xx

  1. I'm playing, sharing mostly on Instagram (as hannafredin) and sometimes even at Facebook, Tumblr and Twitter. See you out there!

  2. Hoping to join in this month. My photo-muse is in sorry need of a kick in the pants at the moment.
    Your April prompts will be just the things to give the kick!

  3. I missed one day in January, am so excited that I'm keeping up with myself, and will have such an awesome book of photos to look back on at the end of the year.

  4. I will be sharing my photos on Facebook and Flickr.

    I would love to suggest you start an official Flickr Group for each month. There are a few out there, but all are renegades, not the real Fat Mum Slim.

  5. I can never seem to complete a full month. I'll go days (mostly on the weekend) without looking at this list so I can't way to save it as my wallpaper, then I will always see it.

  6. Thanks for doing this! I started playing yours in February and continued through March on Instagram! It keeps me motivated to post at least one (if not more) photos a day on there ๐Ÿ˜€

  7. I tried march photo a day without knowing what it was..
    But I'll be starting fresh in April the right way! ๐Ÿ™‚
    Sharing to my facebook page and a weekly roundup on my blog. (or one for the month, we'll see)
    Love this idea ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. Thanks so much for creating these challenges I've been going since January, and have been sharing on my blog, http://www.sandragale.blogspot.com and on instagram as s_gale. I really agree with what you said about the lovely community of people sharing (especially on instagram) I've made quite a few new instagram friends from connecting through this challenge. I'm really looking forward to playing again in April. We are heading overseas tomorrow, and I can't wait to add a photoaday twist to my holiday snaps

  9. I just love how this has gone OFF! I bet you didn't expect THAT!

    You're now considered the Instagram Queen.

    (In my books anyhow).


  10. I only found this in February but am loving it! I just share through facebook and hoping to make a mini album at the end of the year if you keep doing it for the year ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. I'm in!! ๐Ÿ˜€ I'm loving the march challenge ๐Ÿ˜€ The past two days were pure madness but I manage to take the pics ๐Ÿ˜€ go me!!


  12. Looking forward to joining in for the first time. It is a good month to begin as I turn 50 in April and will have lots of special things to take photos of. Posting on Facebook and my new blog which I am keeping to myself for now, maybe one day will share, when I am braver. Hugs MC

  13. I have enjoyed the March challenge – and my pics go up on my blog as well as on my Facebook account, where several of my friends are participating too!
    Thanks for the fun list!

  16. I've been looking forward to this for a couple weeks now! I found your January Photo A Day Challenge and did it in March (whoops!) before I realized you had one for March.. So I am hoping to start the April Photo A Day Challenge at the appropriate time ๐Ÿ˜‰ So count me in!

    My blog – http://cbmommyhood.blogspot.com/

  17. I'm so enjoying this!! I'm finding myself taking more than one picture a day, per the requirements for P365, because I don't want to use the same shot for two different things ๐Ÿ˜€

  18. Yesssss I'm totally ready! ๐Ÿ˜‰
    After the FEBPHOTOADAY and the pause in March for my university exams… I'm ready!
    I find the prompst really improved! ๐Ÿ™‚


  19. hello, lovely!

    just wanted to let you know how much i'm loving the instagram photo-a-day challenges. ๐Ÿ™‚ i have to confess, i haven't managed to post a photo each day, but i do post when i can. but the thing i love the most about the challenge is that it shows me how much more alike we all are than different. and that gives me hope for peace.

    thank you. truly.

  20. I love that the fourth is a picture of someone you love. My son turns one on that day and I was already planning on photographing him in the exact spot where he was born in our house. Perfect…

  21. Another first timer! Can't wait to connect and see if I can keep up in April! Thanks for the fun idea and way to connect ๐Ÿ™‚

  24. I will be joining for the first time and I am so excited! I will be sharing on facebook and maybe twitter if I can figure it out. Thank you for inspiring me to get creative.

  25. I have been meaning to join the challenges so far this year, and am really looking forward to the #photoadayApril challenge playing along via Instagram, Facebook and Twitter, and if time permits, through my blog as well. With my little man in hospital for a stem cell transplant, this will help to break up my day and keep my brain ticking over. Thanks!

  26. I just joined in for March but only realized I should have been using the hashtag all along today! I share on Instagram and Pinterest but my blog is the most consistent. Occasionally the photos may make it to my flickr page as well. whistlepunch.blogspot.com

  27. I just decided I'm in for this month, for the first time, yay! I've being dying to join in since your first photo a day but life was being just a little bit shit. Things are now looking up =)

  28. Is there a reason the hashtag changed? It's historically been #[month]photoaday, but this month is #photoaday[month]. Which should we be using?

    • Hey Tori. The hashtag changed because so many other people were creating challenges and taking our hashtag and riding on it.

      So after a few requests I decided to change it so that when we search it we can only see the photos fro the list I created. It's better for the community.

      So the correct hashtag to use for April is #photoadayApril xx

  29. very very excited for the april photo a day! i found that a bunch of my friends heard about this challenge and was surprised at the amount of people i knew who actually did it! thanks for the new challenge!

    i upload mine to my flickr: http://www.flickr.com/photos/chlobear/
    i'll make a set when april arrives ๐Ÿ™‚

  30. I'm excited to join in for April! One question: I notice there is #photoadayapril on the poster but most people write #aprilphotoaday

    Which one is it?? Thanks!!!! Looking fwd to next month!

    Either way I'll be posting to Instagram @olivjuice!

  31. I've seen #photoaday pop up on twitter everywhere in march and I was curious – sounds like a fun challenge and I'll definitely join in, especially since April is gonna be an AWESOME month ๐Ÿ™‚

  32. I've only just come across your photo a day challenge so am gonna give it a bash for april … will be uploading on my blog ๐Ÿ™‚

  33. Is there any way you can make just the list for the month printer friendly? Last time I tried to copy it down (I like having it on hand with my camera) I got about 60 pages..lol..mostly comments. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks.

  34. twitter @sl_18 & Facebook add me suzanne rich. This is my 1st month and i am really excited to be starting tomorrow ๐Ÿ™‚

  35. I saw it on twitter in February and decided to join in March…it was awesome! I can't wait to take pics of April's prompts.

    I'll be sharing once a week at my blog evamadera.wordpress.com and on twitter @evamadera

  36. I started this in March because I didn't know about it till then. I'm joining in each month now. Mine are posted on my blog at BarbsBiteSizedNotes dot blogspot dot com

  37. I am in. I will be posting to my blog and pinterest and probably some on facebook as well. Maybe changing it up a bit as I go along. We shall see.

  38. I'm SO EXCITED to finally get to participate!! WHOOO! I'm following you EVERYWHERE! ๐Ÿ™‚ My instagram name is alililly73, it's the same for twitter, facebook and blog are without the 73! ๐Ÿ™‚

  39. I can't believe no one has thought of doing these lists before – you've done such a wonderful job ๐Ÿ™‚ I've tried completing 365 photo projects before with very little success, your lists are EXACTLY what I needed for inspiration. Well done!

  40. I've played every month this year, I even started this one. But I feel as though a lot of April's are repeats or so similar to past ones & no offense, I got quite bored of it.
    Hoping May's is good though, I really do enjoy doing them daily.
