Like any Blogger, I use Instagram; although I have not got many followers, I feel like it’s a good interactive tool. Occasionally I ask you wonderful lot what you would like to read: “What’s in my notebook?” won out. This is what today’s post is about.
Recently, I was lucky enough to receive this set from Say Nice Things, a small business company that puts a lot of thought into their products. (Don’t believe me? Read this!)To read the set review, go back to the post from three days ago.
I chose the A5 to be my next jotter.
wHY HAVE A JOTTER?
I have a lot of ideas. All. The. Time. But if I did not write them down, I would forget something really integral-like potential questions for a possible corruption talk at my course. (More on that in the new year.)
As I have written time and time again, I also have a need to plan, because of my Aspergers. Micro-managing allows to put structure into my routine, and therefore avoid what could be termed as a meltdown. (Again, more about. that in the new year.)
What makes this notebook a bit more unique than the average is the division inside:
The back has plan notebook paper, and the front has various squares, etc-to go with the post-it box that comes with the set. All of this is divided by a wonderful piece of pink card, bisecting the two sections from each other.
iNSIDE THE JOTTER:
A lot of the focus of this notebook was planning for 2018, and keeping lists of seemingly inane things.
After this, each page is dedicated to a theme within the blog, with potential post ideas listed. (Because, spoiler: writing daily this year has seriously rumbled my ideas.)
And at the back?
- Film list
- Book list
- Notes about someone I’m interviewing next year
- Notes about the corruption talk
- Ideas for a website I freelance for
- NCTJ course pitch ideas
And a whole lot more! (Some cannot be mentioned for privacy reasons.)
N.B: Since writing this post, I have since changed notebooks! Because, yes, I am a notebook fiend.
