Using my bullet journal to organise my blog

As a massive stationery nerd I have a habit of starting and dropping diaries and journals. I like to be organised but have struggled to find the best method. I think I’ve finally got it with this bullet journal.

When I started my first bullet journal last summer, I wanted to include a bit of everything. Initially I found it quite therapeutic to draw and colour in letters and plan out my months but it soon became stressful trying to find the time to keep it up to date – not ideal! So a couple of months in I cut it down a bit, keeping the colouring aspect but tracking less. Come the new year, when I figured out what I wanted from a bullet journal, I’ve started from scratch. Take a look.

I decided the use the journal I received from Say Nice Things* last year (check out the initial review here and keep an eye out for a giveaway during National Stationery Week!). I didn’t want to have too many different sections and their layout works perfectly. I have a section for my diary/schedule (a month to a double page spread), a section for my monthly to do list (bills to pay, birthday presents to get, etc) and blog admin, a section for favourite quotes (cos they’re always fine to look through) and a section for my blog, including my schedule, stats, post ideas and theme/size guides. That leaves a section blank for the time being while I decide what I’d like to do with it. Any ideas?

Here’s a look at my monthly set up…

I do still use my blog planner and notepad from Dot Creates but I find it handy to note some stuff down in my bullet journal too.

I’ve kept this bullet journal going for the last month and I think this one’s finally gonna stick.

Do you have a bullet journal?

    1. I started out with way too much in mine and it was totally unnecessary. Now I just use it to track important dates, bills and blog scheduling/stats tracker.

  1. Aww you are so organised! :) I agree that it’s essential to have a physical journal with you as a blogger. I use mine mostly for scrabbling thoughts.. and then use my Evernote on my phone to stay organised even further. That’s where I have all my quotes for example.
