I've been using my bullet journal for a while now, and though I usually post my weekly log layout in my weekly posts, I haven't written an update in how I use it since a month after I started using it.
I love the flexibility and adaptability that bullet journalling offers. I'm able to change up my daily log and weekly spread layouts every week, add whatever pages I fancy and I can be creative with it.
In this post I'm just going to show how I use my bullet journal for my daily life, but I use the second half of my bujo for blogging. I've had a few people ask about the setup for this part of it so there will definitely be a post on it soon! I'm more reluctant to share as it's the messier half of my bullet journal, but I will grin and bear it and do the post soon, I promise!
Here's a little walkthrough of my current bullet journal setup:
If you read my first bullet journal post, you will recognise these pages. Not much has changed in these pages, I still haven't filled in my goal tracker (I need something to colour in with!!) even though I've actually already hit my target for one of them. I've filled my index in as I've been going and have drawn a little mandala on the front of my bullet journal for no particular reason (hello long train journeys, I'm blaming you).
I tend to keep the lined sections of this notebook for lists and reference pages - things that I check back on. I've added a few more since starting out like: things I might need to buy for interrailing, a little wishlist, meal ideas for when we're feeling super uninspired (most of the time) and a 30 day minimalism challenge I plan to do in July. I still have my 'Books Read' list (I'm quite a way off 52, I'm not sure if that goal is very achievable!), my recurring tasks that I don't use very often and my Twitter chat schedule I use all the time. My future log for the next 6 months is looking a little bare at the moment, but it's just because I can't plan that far in advance! I don't know what modules I'm doing next year (well I've applied, but not had them confirmed yet) and I don't know when I'm moving back to university so I will need to fill this in later on in the year.
I keep my monthly and daily logs in the plain and squared pages. Originally they were in the squared pages, but I ended up running out of room! So now they're in the blank pages, which I actually prefer, as there's less restriction. I still have my spending log in the squared pages and also a running to do list, though mostly I use the one on my monthly page.
I actually like the simplicity of June's monthly layout. I keep saying I'm going to start making my spreads more minimalistic but it never really happens haha, I love adding cute quotes and illustrations and doodles, but I love simplicity too! I may do a whole month of 'back to basics' bullet journalling to see how that goes.
I hope you enjoyed a little look through of my bullet journal, I'll post again soon with the second half - the blog half. If you have any questions or anything you'd like to see, let me know in the comments!
