March photo a day

Hello! Are you ready for another month of photo-taking-fun? I am. I’m so surprised that I’ve managed to do every single day without missing a photo, and I’m still enjoying it. How about you?

If you haven’t played before and want to join, please do! If you want to skip a month and take a break, please do. I love that so many people are playing along {it makes my heart sing}, but it should be fun. So if you’re finding it to be a chore, just jump in and out as you please.

Here’s how to play:

♥ Starting on March 1st take a photo each day with inspiration from the prompt. For example prompt 1 is ‘up’, so take a photo looking up. Or of the word ‘up’. Or something that lifts your mood ‘up’. It it totally up to you how you want to interpret it.

♥ Once you’ve taken your photo you can share it on Instagram, Facebook {on your own profile or business page}, Twitter, Flickr, your blog, Pinterest, Tumblr or even just keep them in a folder on your desktop. If you’re sharing on Twitter or Instagram add the hashtag #Marchphotoaday so others can find your photos too.

Note: For day 20 you’ll see that it says ‘before / after’. Again, you can interpret this however you like. I thought it would be cool for people to use an app like picframe to show two photos in one. It could be a meal before eating and the plate after. It could be anything! If you don’t have any iPhone or don’t want to buy an app – just use your imagination and either take two photos or work it into just one.

I look forward to seeing all the photos for March photo a day.

Are you in?

  1. Yay! March has been posted, can't wait… going on vacation for 10 days, I wonder what interesting pictures I will take on those days. hehe

  2. Hi!
    I donΒ΄t have Twitter, Instagram, an Iphone or anything else – but your challenge is a wonderful and great help for my ProjectLife. Thanks a Lot!

  3. love the new look chantelle! it seems everyone has had blog facelifts lately. lovely and sleek. I am really enjoying the photo a day challenges. x

  4. Yay!! Can't wait to join in again, I've done Jan and Feb and have been sharing in instagram and my blog. My favourite thing (aside from the daily creativity burst) has been connecting with different people doing the challenge on instagram, it really is such a lovely little community. And congratulations and thank you for creating such a fun project that has captured the imagination of so many people x

  5. I love your new blog look! It's very fresh and cheerful. πŸ™‚

    I think I will probably continue this in March. I wasn't sure I'd have enough time to even do this in February, but so far I'm really enjoying it! I think it takes a bit of the pressure off to only have a commitment for one month at a time (I've attempted a year-long photo project and ran out of steam about halfway through).

  6. I actually love doing this. It gives me a chance to play with my camera, even though sometimes I'm just trying to get through the photoshoot for the day. I,m really enjoying this. Thanks for doing it. Can't wait to start March.

  7. Yaaay! I've loved Fabruary, so I am really happy to see a March challenge! I am really enjoying getting back into taking pictures and finding my place behind the lens πŸ™‚

  8. Hello I'm new (hahahah feels like a new class xD) and I'm in! πŸ˜€ saw the feb challenge trough another blog and I've been waiting for the march challenge! πŸ˜€

  9. I think I'm gonna finally take the plunge!! I've seen so many others do this and it looks so fun, I'm looking forward to getting creative!

  10. How do you do this??? I'm intrigued, but oh so consumed.

    I'll try my best. February is kickin' my butt. (In a good way…It helps me feel creative)

    Thank you for doing these…

  11. This is fun πŸ™‚ A friend posted this on Facebook and I've hit every Feb day so far. Since my daughter is my favorite thing to take photos of, I have the added challenge of trying to include her in every photo πŸ™‚

  12. I've watched so many people on Flickr do your challenges & love them! I love how you have taken the pressure off me and said to just use my iPhone! I think I can handle a picture a day w/ that! πŸ™‚ Thank you for keeping all of us inspired! Love your blog!

  13. I enjoyed what I managed to take of February. I'm a little obsessive over the fact that I wasn't able to take photos on all the days consecutively (I know you don't NEED to but I wanted to) so I decided to stop for now and start again in March.

    This has been very inspiring though so thank you so much for that and I look forward to March!

  14. I love these things. This has really helped me keep my husband updated while he is in Korea. It will also help if/when we get to join him later in the year to keep family back home updated. I am in for March and have posted a link so some of my friends/family can join also πŸ™‚

  15. this is the first time I have every tried a photo a day project I missed January and started for Feb.. Love it.. so much fun.. thanks to my iphone .. I am too lazy to always drag out my big cameras. SO glad I came across your photo a day as well as your blog.. you rock

  16. I'm so excited!

    I've seen a few of my friends doing this on Instagram, and it took some digging for me to find out where they were getting their lists. Finally I get to try this activity out for myself!

  17. I'm in! I found your Photo-a-Day Challenge through Shelley at House of Smiths. Shelley inspired me to start my own blog and your photo-a-day challenge has been the inspiration for my blog posts for each day in February! It's been wonderful fun and I'm so appreciative of the creative prompts. Thank you so much and I look forward to tackling March's Challenge!

  18. I'm so up for this. I did January, didnt start Feb and have been missing it like crazy – hsould have just joined in half way through…
    bring on March 1 and boohoo to copycats. (love your quote on inspiration. I'm all for that though)
    cheers Fiona

  19. I am loving doing this for February and will be joining in again in March. This time I hope to write a little more each time as well.

    Thank you Chantelle!

  20. I am glad that you decided to post about this.
    I was actually annoyed when i discovered one of the 'copies' seems to have originated from someone i follow/follows me who didn't know where the jan photo a day thing had started, and i linked her in the direction of your blog. oh dear. i feel dreadful that she has blatantly copied, with no regard whatsoever for your efforts, creativity and origiginality, and i apologise in advance if it was my link that led her to you, and resulted in the copy.
    I have loved looking at all the photos (despite my innability to keep up with the challenge!)

    Keep up the great work, Chantelle!

  21. I'm one of your newest followers and I'm so amped to start the my first photo a day challenge. I'm actually shouting you out tomorrow on a blog post (which of course I'm linking back to you :))

    Thanks for the inspiration! This should be FUN!


  22. yay! I just started this month, am loving it so much:) totally fun, creative, gives you a moment to reflect…and I love looking at how others interpret the day's subject!

  23. Really enjoying Feb and have introduced it to a couple of friends. Now a little concerned about March though and the thought of said friends and Day 23 – Moon.

  24. I've loved #febphotoaday – you're cues are wonderful. Just open enough to allow for creativity but specific enough to get motivated! Thanks so much. Here's to #marchphotoaday

  25. I just had the idea to theme March around my lovable & handsome whippet, Jack. I take so many photos of my dog I thought what a fun way to get creative everyday with your photo a day challenge! I am already thinking of how to do 5pm on the 6th as I'll be at work while he's napping at home. Maybe a different time zone? So fun! Thanks for putting this on and keepin it going! @almostmrskane in Arizona

  26. great idea πŸ™‚ i saw it for the first time ob the blog magnoliaelectric and i'm fascinated! going to join the first time in march and see how it'll be πŸ™‚ sounds like fun! i'm gonna post the pictures then on my blog.

    have a great day!
    sina πŸ™‚

  27. i am in for march! i found you through “hey harriet”. i love her stuff. now i see that i will love your stuff too! we have a few similar shots, that one of you and your child in the back seat of the car? i just took one just like that this weekend of me and my son! and i have tennies really similar to yours with bright pink, and also i noticed your shot of strawberries in a yellow bowl! i have one similar to that from back in september. all that to say, i like your style! πŸ™‚

  28. I have been enjoying this. I do have to use previously taken photos on occasion (like pics of myself, or from Christmas, etc. for something like “makes me happy”), but for the most part, I do try to take each picture as it comes. It is quite the challenge! Sometimes I really have to come up with creative
    I also hold mine on my FB page until the month's end, then just post them all at once.
    Thanks for making my year a bit more interesting. I hope when I go on vacation that i can keep it up and meet each day's challenge in May. Looking forward to seeing what Disney/Florida will add to my collection. I plan to compile mine into a book at yeary's end.
    Have an awesome month!

  29. What a great idea! It's gonna be joyful March! I'm already thinking about the first few prompts. I'm definitely joining in! Good luck everyone! -Renia-

  30. I joined in for Feb… not Jan though. i love doing it. I am always BLOWN away by how many people are actively participating! I was showing my husband the pics I took and told him about you and he asked how many people were doing it (thinking I was silly and not many) and on that particular day, there were over 500,000 entries on Instagram! He was shocked! haha.
    Thanks for putting this together! I'm uploading to my blog, Instagram and twitter.

  31. Man I can't wait for this! Just heard about it from a friend and I think that it's sooo cool.

    twitter & instagram: @jonreid_ Follow & I'll follow back–can't wait to see what everyone has.

  32. totally up for the challenge…failed to keep it up last month πŸ™ determined this time around to take it on. Also thanks for the app idea! Installing now!

  33. I'm going to do it! First photo-a-day challenge for me. I'll post on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.

  34. I'm taking part this month, all thanks to a friend who did your list last month. I'm looking forward to being creative and pushing myself beyond what I normally photograph.

  35. I loved #febphotoaday and I'm totally doing the march challenge but what is up with all these other copycat march challenges.

  36. I had so much fun doing #FebPhotoADay and Im already starting up with #MarchPhotoADay! I got my friends and families to join in and participate and they got the ball rolling. Thanks!

  37. I'm behind but determined to catch up! It's a great idea to share my insights with my friends and show our area to friends who are far away and give myself something to get me taking pictures more often! I have a bunch on my cameras just need to get them uploaded!
