Inside my bullet journal.

IMG_1564

As somebody with Asperger’s syndrome, organisation is very important to me; I have to plan my days, know what everyone else is doing. Added to this various things: column and homework deadlines; a vague revision schedule; interviews; blog posts to write and more. I was in need of a planner.

My planner’s have variously been chronicled on this blog; I had, and alternated between, two personal sized Filofaxes; they both grew messy, as well as consequently becoming unkempt. I also had an A5 planner from Paperchase; this was too big to cart around, therefore again being of little use. In the intermission, I started a bullet journal-well, my own version, at least. I haven’t got the usual layouts; rather, I divided it into diary and a misc section. Want to look inside?

I have up until July plotted in this notebook (also from Paperchase.) At the beginning is a ‘month at a glance’ with long term projects that month; as you can see here, I have a blog interview response pencilled in.

Following on from that, I have Monday to Sunday, then a notes page, then it repeats all over again. Then, from June, I have a goals page also. Gotta pass my exams!

I love to decorate! There is just something very cathartic. In blue are the blog posts for that day-this is over two days of a guest posting week I held not too long ago. I also (try to) keep track of revision tasks: I don’t do well with a timetable, so I set three asks for that day. In orange is my ‘To do’ list; I also keep track of my correspondence-what I receive and post-as well as questions for my lecturers, phone bill days, and Twitter chat reminders.

As I’m sure you’re all aware, the UK is having an election soon; it’ll be the first time I can vote. I have the deadline for voter registration to vote. There’s also my weekly pilates session-as I have poor balance-and what I’ll be baking that week. (It’s a long story, but I have baked for my politics class.)

I also keep Post-its; these relate to blog emails, brands to pitch to. Others relate to my blog relaunch.

July! This is the month introductory page; as you can see, these post-its are reminders, such as for giveaways, blog projects, and more.

As a way to divide up the diary into two sections, I collaged it. There’s Queen, Natalie Portman, Chanel….all the best things!

There are various things from here on; I’ll show you just a few:

A list of hashtags and chats for Twitter! As a blogger, my stats rely on my social media; I have to stay on top of it. Because…..I want you all to read what I have to say, really. I would love to create a community here.

This is a monthly layout for the relaunch:

There are Twitter chats, giveaways, and some lovely content…I hope to go self hosted. But I would love to import all my WordPress stuff to Blogger prior to doing so. Can anyone help? I need you!

My relaunch to do list! So much to do…

My mind is also a compulsive wonderer…I am very curious about this world. Whilst watching Designated Survivor, I doodled a list of questions for me to ask Google.

And in case I run out of Blog post ideas?

    I love your bullet journal! I’ve attempted it a few times but never managed to stick with it. However, I feel like I need something to keep me organised recently, so I’m tempted to try again. I think my problem was that I was trying to make it beautiful and it kind of took away from the purpose of it. However, the simplicity of yours has made me realise it can be simple.

    I’m sure we all love seeing other people’s bullet journals, it’s just so interesting. And I Iike yours, very personal and consistent but also not perfectionist. And lots of colours, that’s always good :).
    I change my system all the time too, I think that’s normal. After all, we change as people too.
    Also yay for first-time voting! Participation is so important.

    Loved this post! I’ve been obsessed with looking at other people’s bullet journals and I’m so tempted to start one, I just don’t know if I’d keep it up! I always just abandon any planner I use. I love your collage aswell, it looks fab! X

    I have been bullet journalling for a month now and find it really useful. I have a page each week for blogging schedules and my blog post ideas but haven’t worked out what is best for me yet with getting things down. I like to be very organised. Yours looks so organised, I love looking at other peoples journalling for inspiration.

    I always love seeing peoples bullet journals. As an eternally disorganised person, I get a certain vicarious thrill from seeing the organisation of others 🙂 Thanks for sharing!
