What is a bullet journal? A creative method of journaling and note-taking that uses bullet points as its core structure. The idea behind it is that you jot down quick notes instead of long sentences in a creative and attractive way.
Using symbols, charts and illustrations, and a variety of pen colours on a dotted grid background - you can log anything you want, such as:
chronicle daily activities
- track habits
- log appointments
- keep calendars
- plan trips
- record random thoughts
- keep track of a diet.
In less than a year, the phenomenon that is bullet journaling has taken off with thousands of journalers sharing their work on Pinterest, Instagram and Facebook. In How To Bullet Plan
, Buzzfeed editor Rachel Wilkerson Miller tells you everything you need to know to start your own, with beautiful colour illustrations to spark your ideas.
