B is for Bullet Journals

B is for Bullet journals. A while back I stumbled upon some information online about bullet journals and thought to myself - this sounds and looks like something I want to try!  So I began on October 26, 2017 with a journal, black pen, and a ruler.  Now I have more pens in all sorts of styles and colors than I can count (well maybe not quite that many, but a lot!) and oodles of other "tools" for bullet journaling.  My advice for anyone who is new to this and who wants to give it a try - keep it simple so you do not get overwhelmed!!  You can effectively bullet journal with a simple notebook and a pen.  You do not need all the other goodies.  They are fun to have, but not necessary!  You do not have to be super artistic either!  There are many YouTube videos of people bullet journaling who do absolutely amazing art work, but that is not required!  Practice and journal at your own pace and know that there is really no "wrong" way to do this.  That is one thing I love most about bullet journals - you can tailor it to exactly what you require!  Personally I include stickers and trace images I find online to add some decoration to my bullet journal.  I use it as a tool to help me keep organized and to help increase my productivity - it doesn't always do that for me, but I try.  Some weeks (or months) I use my journal very seldom, and other times I keep up with is daily; it all depends on my motivation and energy!

  1. I have a bullet journal and your right it comes and goes. I think i set my expectations really high and it didn't happen but it did help me when I used it. Maybe your post will introduce someone to it!
