Photo A Day Challenge: April

Have you all been wondering what the excessive amount of hash tagging (#) has been about on my uploaded Facebook photos?

Lingo Help: Originally created by Twitter, hashtags are used for words or phrases in order to label a keyword or topic in a Tweet.  Simply label a keyword in your message with # before the word or phrase – without spaces – and it instantly connects you to conversations revolving around the topic.

Example: Next week’s finale looks good! I’m guessing Team Big Brother are the two trying to bypass the detour. #AmazingRace

Today ended my 30 photo-a-day challenge on Instagram.

For those of you who are still wondering what the heck I’m talking about, Instagr.am is a photography sharing app for the iPhone and Android smart phones.

I’ve seen photos with the hashtag #photoadayfeb and #photoadaymarch pop up on my feed, so I did some research on what the challenge is all about.  Towards the end of March, Jill tweeted “Who’s in?” with the following photo:

I was!

Throughout the last 30 days, I have enjoyed completing a daily photo challenge and following others who do the same.  It’s easy to see what other people come up with by searching for #photoadayapril on either Istagram or Twitter.

Whether you realized it or not, I shared all of my photos with you by feeding them directly to my Twitter and Facebook pages.

Some words allowed me to get artistic.

I’m probably going to take the month of May off, and enjoy doing the challenge every other month or so.  I’ll keep you updated on when I’m participating and hope to get some of you hooked as well.

Until then, enjoy the Instagram feed on my right side bar and search for me under hwglamour.

Sweet Potato Oatmeal Rasin Cookies

Dry ingredients

On the way to the grocery store last weekend, Scott got an out-of-the-blue urge to make some kind of pumpkin oatmeal raisin treat.
