Blogging through the Alphabet: B is for Bullet Journals

abcblogbutton2

I am a day late on this, sorry! I had a hard time picking just one thing this week. At first I wanted to do something from my Books and literature activities pinterest board, but ultimately decided on starting a bullet journal. I have been pinning ideas on my bullet journal board for a while. I have thought about starting a bullet journal a few times. I really love journaling, and this looks like such a fun way to do it.


I picked up some pens and a dot journal from my local Wal store. Thankfully both were fairly inexpensive. The pens were on sale!

I opened it all up, and opened up the bullet journal ideas on Pinterest on my phone to get started. But, I just stared at this blank page for a while. I was scared of messing up. I also had a hard time deciding what to start with. This is where I always get stuck when starting these things! Then, my daughter saw what I was doing, and she joined me. She suggested just doing the Netflix idea I had mentioned earlier. That one seemed easy enough.

I did it! I really enjoyed it too. I used this pin for inspiration. Thankfully I didn't mess up, and I love the end result. I think I found something new that I will really enjoy doing.

I am really enjoying this round of blogging through the alphabet. It is stretching me to do some more creative things, and check off some of the Pinteresting things I want to do. I am joining these co-hosts, so stop by their blog to link up. For some reason I can't get the Inlinkz linky to work this time. Edited to add: I got the linkup to work!

  1. Fun, fun! I have always admired those with bullet journals, but never started one. You may have inspired me to try one :)

    1. Me too! I have always thought the bullet journal looked fun, but struggled with just needing to make quick lists and being able to just toss them because they aren't pretty. So, I don't do daily lists or calendars in my bullet journal. It'll be pages like this where I want to keep track of longer term things. I've already started my next page. It's birthdays!
