My Bullet Journal – One Month On

Ever since I saw Lily Pebbles talk about her Bullet Journal a few months ago I’ve wanted to try one.  I work best with To-Do lists and a bullet journal is a book of lists/ to-do lists so the bullet journal is perfect for me.  This has helped me so much getting everything done and work on habits I want to develop.

This is my key that keeps everything consistent throughout my bullet journal.  I love using dashes instead of bullets because if I need to push something to the next day, I can make that dash into an arrow.  If I complete a task I make the dash into a cross.  I love how simple my key is, I never get confused with my symbols.

Habit trackers make a huge difference because I get so motivated to color in those little boxes with different highlighters.  I have picked up so many habits that are great to have as a blogger, like commenting on other blogs and pinning things from other blogs. I decided to change the layout of my tracker because of how much more work the calendar style was.  The ability to change little things like this makes all the difference between planners.

Collections are such a fun thing, they can be anything you want.  Mine are post ideas, twitter party times, coding progress, blog designs I like, and a few others.  I love filling them in and having a place to keep everything.  There are no more random pieces of paper floating around with a blog design I like, thank goodness.

I don’t really use the calendar in my monthly log because I have a separate calendar for my posting schedule.  I think for September I’ll remove it from my monthly log and only have it in my weekly logs like I do now.

What I Love About the BuJo:

The tracker and daily logs motivated me to accomplish stuff like a boss this month.  Also, being able to change things and draw things is really fun. It keeps me excited about the next day, the next week, the next month, and all the things I have to do. Using a bullet journal keeps everything organized in such personal way.

As you can see in my pictures, the trackers are different between months and every weekly log looks different.  Also, I have completely 180’ed my productivity… and my handwriting because of the amazingness that is the bullet journal.

If you want to see any more posts on my bullet journal (there’s one more scheduled for next week) let me know!
