This is the last post in my bullet journal series of blogs and I hope you have enjoyed seeing how my bullet journal for 2018/19 is looking. I’m really pleased with it so far and as this is my third bullet journal, I think I’m finding my own way with it now and have more of an understanding of how I want my journal to look and work for me.
If you haven’t read my previous posts in the series, feel free to look back over the past posts.
I hope I have given a good overview and insight into bullet journaling and if you want to give it a go, here are some of my tips:
- Watch YouTube videos – begin with the official Bullet Journal introductions, and then maybe watch videos by Lucy Moon or Lily Pebbles for some good inspiration and tips
- Search Pinterest for ideas
- Definitively consider using a ‘Leuchtturm1917’ notebook, they’re great and work really well for bullet journaling
- A bullet journal is all about experimentation and finding what works for you – don’t get caught up in trying to make yours too perfect or pristine
- Your bullet journal can reflect yourself – what is it that you are good at? Drawing? Doodling? Organisation? Use that and don’t try to do too much, if you are not the most artistic person, then perhaps stick to basic designs and layouts else you’ll spend ages on your journal design
- Think about how much time you have; will you have enough time to spend drawing up spreads?
- A bullet journal should be a functional tool at the end of the day – don’t forget that
I hope you’ve enjoyed this series, thank you for reading.
