December Instagram Challenge

After completing the October Photo Challenge, and successfully stalking so many pictures I felt like I should be driving past people’s houses late and night and peeking in the windows, some Instagram buddies and I decided to continue our voyeurism over the holidays by creating our own December Photo A Day Challenge.
#holidayaday2The #holidayaday December Instagram Challenge will rule and here is why:
1. I love the holidays. (decorations and fabulous food, come on)
2. I love pictures. (especially kids, dogs, and of course – food)
3. And I love you. (because you rock, duh!)
… so you should join in too.
After all it is the holidays, so the more the merrier.

Everyday take a picture that corresponds to the topic that day, post it to Instagram, and be sure to tag it with #holidayaday hashtag.  (That way everyone can follow the #holidayaday hashtag to see how other people completed that day’s topic.)


A big shout out to my blogging buddies who jumped on board with my crazy idea:
Rebecca from Rebecca Roams (IG: RebeccaRoams)
Kat from Sneakers and Fingerpaints (IG: katsnf)
Mindy from Mindy’s Fitness Journey (IG: mindyartze)
Kate from Run With Kate (IG: runwithkate)
Sarah from Mom Running On Empty (IG: momonempty)
Mindy at Road Runner Girl (IG: roadrunnergirl)
Gina at Noshing on Asphalt (IG:AsphaltNosher)

Have you ever done an Instagram challenge?
Will you join in for the December #holidayaday Photo Challenge?
If I am not already following you on Instagram (BackatSquare0) please leave me your name so I can stalk you look at your pictures.

    I will view but I know I will never remember to do this each day although I could do cookies every day since I am a cookie lover.. PLUS I am taking quite a few days away from social media starting this weekend so… I will try to view though! FUN!

    I’ve been wanting to get better at photography so this is a great opportunity for me to improve my skills. I’m saving the post so I don’t miss anything.

    I started an Instagram account today for this challenge. I’ve been wanting to try it out, this is the perfect excuse. IPod pictures and still not feeling like it’s the holiday season – what could go wrong?

    This will be fun! I’ve been neglecting my instagram and I think this challenge will get me using it again. My instagram is GertieRuns
