Bullet Journaling is a great way to let your creative juices flow. I’ve always bought a planner at the beginning of every year and guess what, I never used it. A planner is great for scheduling but not for every aspect of your life. When I started bullet journaling I thought it would be great to start one specifically for my blog.
Let me start off by saying that I AM NOT artistic. I mean I have some great ideas but executing them… well that’s a whole different story. After searching the web I found some ideas for design and got to work.
I decided I didn’t want to use a key for this bullet journal. I mean honestly, how often do you refer back to your key? If you do, that’s fine go ahead and create one as your first page.
My first bullet journal for blogging spread is for my blog post ideas. If you’re like me and have sticky notes all over the place, notes in your phone, and in your head, this one is for you! I find that just a basic page for my blog post ideas is kind of boring so I added in a few categories for my blog post ideas.
I separated them by holidays, what’s trending, and everyday blog post ideas. You can add whatever designs you’d like, and any categories you prefer. I like having my blog post ideas as my first page because that’s something I feel I would use quite a bit.
Next, I decided I’d like to have a “Blogs 2 Watch” page. This is a good page to have if you’re a new blogger and you’re searching for blogs that inspire you.
You can add little notes to each section of the “Blogs 2 Watch” page. For example; notate what you like about the blog, what niche the blog is in, and other things you think you should notate.
Now, if you’re a blogger your most likely using Pinterest as one of your sharing platforms. I use Pinterest to see what’s trending and create upcoming blog posts around those topics. Keep track of what’s trending on Pinterest and apply this to next years blog posts. I like to notate the date and I’ll probably create one of these for each month in the future.
Here’s a complete list of all the tools/supplies I used when I created these pages/spreads for my bullet journal.
I really like this bullet journal, it’s a great price and the paper quality is GREAT. The Moleskine Bullet Journal is 70 GSM, and the Leuchtturm 1917 Bullet Journal is 90 GSM. For comparison, this Lemome Bullet Journal is 120 GSM.
This is perfect for those of you that aren’t artistic, like me. I used these for my ribbons, social icons, roses, lines, and basic shapes.
I use these for titles and on some line work. I LOVE these for creating big bold text. They’re easy and fun to use once you get the hang of it.
I love these for highlighting text or coloing in lettering. Keep in mind that these aren’t bold colored markers.
