A few months back, the laughs from my blog friends about the absurd amount of Instagram challenges I was participating in were audible (Sonya, thank you for calling me out on my obsession!) Laughs of love, of course. Because let’s be honest – I was partaking in a ton of Instagram photo challenges. Why shouldn’t I take a photo every single day? For seventeen different challenges.
From the ever-popular fatmumslim Photo a Day (#fmsphotoaday) to Forever Young Adult’s book themed photo hunt, I was hooked. I still am hooked, in fact, though I’ve made it a point to tone things down and take an Instagram photo challenge break.
That was until I heard that my dear friend Alexis over at Strange and Charmed was hosting a photo challenge in the month of March. It’s been ages since I’ve participated in one, and her productivity-inspired photo challenge is right up my alley. While I do enjoy the general prompts of #fmsphotoaday, I prefer the themed ones; it’s nice to find a challenge that’s geared to your interests (hello-o #booksandcupcakes monthly book-themed challenge!). I find that a relatable theme that you’re passionate about makes taking the actual pictures less stressful and more manageable, which is always a good thing.
So this month I’m getting back in the photo challenge saddle. No more “I’m too busy” excuses. Brace yourself, Instagrammers! It won’t be the barrages of old, but you will be seeing a lot more photos from me!
Follow me on Instagram if you want to keep up with the madness!
