january photo a day challenge

As some of you may know Instagram is one of my favorite iPhone app’s…hence my ‘instagram pics of the week” posts (I really need make that a more consistent englexas feature!)

So when I saw this January photo challenge for Instagram on January 1st I just knew it was something I wanted to do! It took a little google digging, but I finally tracked the genius creator of this challenge down to Chantelle at fat mum slim who posted her list as a guide for the daily images that you are supposed to post, it was important for me to give credit where credit is due since I know there has been some confusion over the origin of this awesomeness. here’s the ‘guide’:


So it’s pretty simple – every day in January we upload a pic that fulfills the required category and tag it #janphotoaday. It’s been really cool to look through the stream and see all the other creative images that people are creating. In the rules you can upload images taken with any camera – but I am choosing to do this challenge with only my trusty iPhone. Here are my images so far:

*day one – me

*day two – breakfast

*day three – something you cherish

*day four – your letterbox (mailbox for you americans out there!)

I will definitely do a full post once the challenge is over so you can all see my progress. I’ve seen this on a couple other blogs so it’ll be interesting to see who sticks with it! I’m also going to be a part of another photo challenge which I’m super excited about this year so I’ll be updating on Friday to give you the details.
