Bullet Journaling for 2018

It’s the last few days of 2018 – and there are a number of friends who are starting bullet journaling in the new year.  Welcome to the club!  I have found bullet journaling a great way to keep my lists all in one place, rather than having a million half used notebooks all over the house, in my purse, on my desk, and everywhere else.   I’ve been keeping a Bujo for about 2 years – and find it very helpful.  (I’ll do a flip through video once I get January all set up).

One place I found lots of helpful information is from Ryder Caroll himself.  He’s the original creator of the Bullet Journal, and has a site full of lots of information here.  (Link)

Ryder is what is considered a minimal bullet journaler – not full of art, or color, no doodles or fancy layouts.  And that works for lots of people.  However, I use the Bullet Journal as an outlet for my creativity.  I doodle, I play with fun layouts, I add color and interesting backgrounds using watercolors and other items.  They become quite a personal item as you work through them, and as unique as each of us.

Layouts – everyone’s layout fits their needs – so there are as many layouts as there are bullet journalers.   I’ve found lots of resources and ideas on Pinterest.  Everyone sorts their boards a little differently, but if you search for Bullet Journal or BuJo Layouts, you’ll get lots of ideas.  Here’s a great Pinterest resource as well! – LINK 

And let’s not forget Facebook.  There are a million groups out there, good and bad.  The following are some that I’m a member of – I tend to stay out of the conversations and generally use them as resources for layouts, tools, and art supplies.

These are some I recommend:

So, there you go – some good references to get started!  If you have any questions on Bullet Journaling – please look me up on Facebook or stop by the Phynpenni Designs Facebook page and ask!
