Bullet Journaling, Challenges + Tags

the bullet journal tag

I saw this post over on Sitting In The Clouds & she tagged everyone (including me, that means!). So… here’s my answers!


  1. How long have you been bullet journaling?
    Since May 2016, so not that long. I’m on my second BuJo.
  2. What makes the bullet journal system right for you?
    It’s versatile and I don’t feel like I have to conform to anything. I can add anything that I need, or leave out something I don’t need. All you need is a notebook and a pen rather than a fancy (expensive) planner and lots of stickers!
  3. What notebook do you use and why?
    I’m a sheep and use a Leuchtturm1917 (in Navy at the moment) but it is a great notebook. I love the index and the numbered pages. I’ve never had an issue with bleeding or ghosting through the paper!
  4. What’s your go-to pen?
    I still haven’t found ‘the one’ because I generally just use cheap pens from The Works. I like smooth-feeling
  5. What’s your bullet journal style?
    I am pretty simplistic. Sometimes I’ll add a bit of colour or fancy font but mostly I just want it practical. I don’t have much time to BuJo anymore so I can’t spend much time doing pretty stuff. Check out my flip-through on YouTube if you want to see it in detail!
  6. What’s your favourite spread to set up each month?
    Probably my blog schedule page because I really like to schedule stuff. That’s probably really anorak-y but whatever.
  7. Where do you get inspiration from?
    The various Facebook groups I’m part of and Instagram. I used to use Pinterest a lot but now I’m just like… nope. Too fancy.
  8. What’s your bullet journal routine?
    After dinner and after all my youtube and blog stuff is done I get a really dense cushion (we call it the wolf pillow because, well, it has a wolf on it) and put my feet on Chris. Then I fill in whatever I need to fill in, take some pics for instagram – I really need to start doing them during the day but I always forget) and have a little browse for ideas.
  9. What’s the page you’re most proud of?
    Um… I dunno. I don’t get ‘proud’ of stuff in my bullet journal because it’s just a productivity tool for me. Maybe my Level 10 Life Goals spread because it’s neat!?
  10. What’s your number one tip for beginners?
    Don’t focus on replicating other peoples’ journals (especially the fancy ones) – try out lots of different things, yes, but don’t get hung up on trying to get it to look a certain way. Just focus on making it as useful for you as possible!


That’s it for the tag! I tag anyone who reads this – either do this post on your blog or youtube – I can’t remember who does bullet journaling on here anymore!?

Anyway, hope you enjoyed and I’ll talk to ya tomorrow.
