Photo A Day is getting a total shake-up this month!

Fat Mum Slim /

So, are you sitting down? I’ve got news.

In October we’re doing something we’ve never done before! It’s going to be a WHOLE month of free choice. Each day you can take a photo of whatever you like.

And here’s why? Each month as I release the new list I see people giving themselves a SUPER hard time for not finishing the list the month before. Words like failed get thrown around, and it makes me feel sad. There’s no such thing as failing in this, it’s meant to be fun.

So I’ve been thinking about those people {FYI, I’m one of those people who’ve struggled to do a whole month this year. Life be crazy!}. I wondered how could I make it as easy as possible, while also including the dedicated many who eagerly complete the month EVERY month. And I thought about this idea…

A month of free choice. So it’s so simple. Just take a photo of whatever you please. It’s back to what the concept of photo a day is about. It’s about stopping each day for a mere moment and taking a photo. You can get as creative as you like, or keep it simple.  You could use it to way to be grateful, sharing what you’re grateful for every day. You could take outfit photos. You could just wake up each day and decide that when you see something that makes you smile, you’ll take a photo and share it. Anything is possible.

HOW TO PLAY

+ Playing along is really simple! Just take a photo each day of WHATEVER you like, and share it.
+ You can then share your photo on either Facebook or Instagram or both! To share on Instagram, just upload with the hashtag #FMSPAD and you’re done {more details below if you need them though!} and to share on Facebook, upload to your personal page or jump into our Facebook group and share there.

HOW TO PLAY ON INSTAGRAM

+ Simply upload the photo to Instagram, add a caption, add the hashtag #FMSPAD and then publish.
+ Check out the #FMSPAD hashtag to see all the other photos. Like them. Comment on them. Be part of the community.
+ Each day a Fab Four is picked from the photos shared on Instagram for the challenge. It’s four photos that have captured our attention from each prompt. Check the feed here to see the photos.
+ To make it easier to find all the daily photos, you can find and use the daily hashtags below. Simply add them to your caption when uploading to Instagram.  Alternatively, my App {The Little Moments App for iPhone/iPad} generates the daily hashtag for you automatically so it takes all the thinking out of it for you!

HOW TO SHARE ON FACEBOOK

+ Upload the photo in our Facebook Photo A Day group {you’ll be added within hours of requesting}, add a caption {you could mention the day and the prompt in the caption} and then publish. You’re also welcome to share on your personal page, if that’s how you like to roll.
+ Check out the photos shared in the group, or among your friends. Comment, like and be part of the photo-taking community.
+ Each day a Fab Four is picked from the photos shared in our Facebook group for the challenge by our lovely admin team. It’s four {or more} photos that have captured our attention from each prompt. The photos are made into a collage, shared and pinned to the top of the group.

HOW TO REMEMBER THE PROMPTS EASILY

+ For all devices and PC, we upload the prompts which you can download automatically into your phone or PC calendar. For Smartphones & Mac Calendar, click here. For HTML for web viewing, click here.
+ You can also print out the list, save it as your screensaver or save it to your camera roll.
+ If you’re a lucky iPhone or iPad owner, you can use the Little Moments App to remind you of what the prompts are, as well as make your photos a bit fancy. You can grab the App here.

And that’s it! Have a great month ahead. xx
