    Yay!! So excited! Maybe I can follow through this time 🙂

  2. Natalija says:

    Is this open worldwide or just US?

  3. Lisa G. says:

    I just have a question or two. Do I take these pic everyday and then post them on IG or do I take and them keep and If I get selected then show them to you? I love your website…..

    • Rachel says:

      Lisa, It’s easier to take 1 picture a day but people start at different times and have to catch up. You can take them any time during the month but make sure you use the hashtag if you’re posting on instagram. You don’t have to use instagram, but you must be able to provide all the pictures (if you’re a part of the group on facebook, you can share them there as well.) It’s always fun to share but if you feel strongly about only showing them to Toni or myself, I believe we’ll accept that.

  4. Shawna Laufer says:

    I entered!

  5. can’t wait to do this!!

  6. Sheila L. says:

    I don’t have Instagram. Or a ‘smart’ device for that matter. I also do not blog. Is there another way that we can participate? Perhaps with a facebook photo album dedicated to the potd challenge?

    • Rachel says:

      If you want to make an album, that should be fine, just make sure you’re able to share the pictures with Toni, if you’re the winner.

      • Sheila says:

        Yay! I believe I will participate! I haven’t done a POTD/Photo Hunt in a long time. Looking forward to getting back into it. Thanks!

    • Sheila R says:

      I do not have a smartphone, or instagram, so I made a photo album on the Planner Addicts FB group for the October Challenge….Am doing the same for November 🙂 Hope that helps!

  7. Nik says:

    I don’t know how to follow a blog :/ I follow on Pinterest and check in frequently. Can someone help me with how to follow, please?

    • Rachel says:

      On the right side of the page, you’ll see a bunch of lemons with icons on them (facebook, email, twitter, etc.) click on the one you want to use to follow the blog.

  8. Maggie says:

    How do I enter? I am a subscriber and I’ve liked your Facebook page? But how do I enter. I “sat out” last month because I am a chicken, but I am ready this month!!!

    • Rachel says:

      join in the fun of the challenge, taking the pictures each day. The week after the challenge ends, there will be a post with a ‘rafflecopter’ for you to enter. (rafflecopter is a program we can use to do a random drawing for give aways)

  9. Sara says:

    I am printing this out right away! 😀 I love this idea since I can’t seem to do a good job of keeping track of what days I was supposed to photograph what.

  10. Casie says:

    I just want to make sure that I’m doing this photo challenge correctly. Do all of these photos have to be tied back in some way to our planners? Or can we just take photos that fit the description of the photo for the day?

    • Rachel says:

      They should be, if you can make them… but, if you can’t do what you have to in order to match your picture to the theme.

  11. Wendy says:

    I may join IG just to do this! What does “Brown” mean?

  12. Ellen says:

    I don’t really understand what you do. I’m trying to come back to using a planner & binders.

  13. Michelle Hose says:

    Hello ABFOL,
    Love this blog and am new to all the photo challenge jazz myself soooo to be clear for my thick skull if i’m taking a POTHD and hashtagging it for IG is that good enough and can be considered for the contest? Is there something that should be done in tandem with that IG hashtag to qualify all my pictures? I have don the October but only as a personal fun thing to see how I would do with keeping up & it was fun so I think that i’ll try November too. This time I’d like to make the pictures count though ;o)

    • Rachel says:

      as long as you can show all the pictures, if you are picked as the winner, you can share them however you want.

  14. Amy says:

    I have been trying to print this out to put into my planner and I have tried everything to get it print!!!! What do I do?

  15. Michelle Scarberry says:

    I’m totally joining this time;) How is a winner chosen? Is there a drawing or are the photos judged?

    • Rachel says:

      There will be a post after the completion of the challenge with a ‘rafflecopter’ for you to fill out. Rafflecopter is a program that chooses a winner, at random, for us.

  16. Deanna says:

    Love this challenge! It’s great to include our family and contribute to our communities. Thanks for a great list Toni!

  17. Cindy S says:

    How do we enter? I am going to try this photo challenge this time around! I love this challenge….and the prizes too!

  18. elizabeth says:

    hi what ig means??

  19. Vickie says:

    I’m new . . . does the POTD have to be on Instagram? I see people posting POTD pics on Facebook. Is that good enough for the contest?

  20. Sara says:

    let’s try this too! 🙂
    last month it was very funny!
    hope to understand each task because of my not so good English (I’m italian) but I’ll certainly try to do my best
    ciao sara

  21. Jen says:

    I just liked your facebook page, and I love this POTD challenge. It’s so fun to always have a topic to blog about every day!

  22. bri says:

    when will the october prizes & winners be announced?

    • Rachel says:

      We apologize for the delay. With the holidays approaching, there is a lot going on ‘behind the scenes’ that you all are going to love! Toni will have the give away prizes and rafflecopter up as soon as she’s able. We know you’re excited (we are too!) and appreciate your patience 🙂

  23. Monica says:

    Tried to print it but it’s not working for me. Am I missing something?

  24. Dani says:

    Just found this challenge and cannot believe how awesome it is!!!!!!!!!! I have already started to catch up and hope to have all 30 photos taken by the end of the month!

  25. jessica says:

    I’d love to try to win a new planner, but right now I use my phone calendar and apps… can i take a pictures of our homeschool calendar? it’s just a one page deal for now… I love the idea of getting back to a physical calendar for the life organization of it… my phone works ok for appointments but i love using them to organize more of daily life!

  26. Penny says:

    What planner is this in your picture and what size is it?

  27. Melinda Yakich says:

    Are you still doing the challenge?

    • Rachel says:

      Yes. The challenge goes through the end of the month, the winner will be chosen during the first week of December.

  28. Jennifer Key says:

    I completed the November POTD challenge and posted to Instagram. I put #planneraddictspotd in the comment section but am not sure if that is correct or not since I am a newbie on Instagram. I enjoyed taking the pictures and hope I get the opportunity to compete for the prizes. Thank you.

  29. Rachel R. says:

    What program are you using to create these printable forms? (And if it happens to be Word, where did you find checkboxes?)

  30. Do we need to do anything besides posting our pics on Instagram with the hashtags? I’ve done that. Thanks.

    • Rachel says:

      Because of the negativity and drama, the group was closed down. It was nothing personal against any one individual but it was something that needed to happen as it became very stressful for those of us trying to keep the group a fun place to be.

  31. Kelly W says:

    Love this idea! Wish I would have found this last month hahaha
    Will be following to find out when you plan to do this again!
    Love you blog as well! Looking for ways to organize my life and hoping to have a more productive 2014 🙂
    Thank you!

  32. Penny Walker says:

    Which planner size is this that is pictured?

  33. Tanya says:

    Where can I find the December POTD planner challenge?

    • Rachel says:

      With the busyness of the holidays, we are taking a break from the POTD challenges. Look for them to return in the new year.
