Starting from the Top.

It’s 2019 and everyone is planning out their bullet journals, including me. I wanted to put something out there since we are starting a new year and that is bullet journaling know-hows. We all look at great examples of bullet journals from minimalistic to elaborate. But at the end of the day, the bullet journal has to be functional.

Author and creator of the Bullet Journal Method, Ryder Carrol published a newly revised edition of his system. I used his method when I started journaling and after reading his new book, I have a much better understanding of the rapid logging system. If you are new to bullet journaling, you should read his book.

The bullet journal can be a dollar store notebook and a ballpoint pen or a leuchtturm1917 and a fountain pen. Keeping a bullet journal is a tool for keeping an analog record of your life. From daily tasks, monthly tasks, lists, and trackers to the future log (to see the bigger picture for the year), the bullet journal is used to help keep you organized and less stressed.

This year I’d like to do a series on bullet journaling and share different layouts and spreads. We all organize information differently and seeing examples always help.

Artfully yours,
