My full review is on my blog...http://librarymomonbooks.bravesites.c...
I'm not new to bullet journalling, but it's easy to get overwhelmed with all the gorgeous, artistic spreads on various platforms, or to disappear into a TV Tropes-level rabbit hole of reading more and more ideas of Terribly Useful Things To Include. I'm coming back to the system after a bit of a break, and decided to treat myself to this very pretty book, expecting to kick myself a little, but I've been pleasantly surprised. Yes, it's very, as my kid says, Aesthetic, but there's also a ton of pr ...more
This book is totally Marie Kondo of journaling! The author is hands-on and really, really has tried everything she is talking about.
She has written for the obsessed. (me, me!)
I always used to have one notebook going where I write everything down but I realized in the past few years, I was using different media for different things I used to write down in my notebooks (Wunderlist for TO DOs, Evernote for pretty much EVERYTHING, Goodreads for Books, Google Calendar and an ongoing excel file for ...more
I had never heard of “dot journaling” before seeing this book, but I’m always interested in ways to manage my time and record those things that I might need to find later on This seems like an interesting take on doing that, starting with a blank journal. The process appeared to me to be focused on the manual creation of forms, and then using them. This is not a process for efficiency – you won’t be managing your time using less time with this system. This is because you will spend time manually ...more
A great, fast read on dot journaling (what some others call "bullet journaling") - what it is, how it works and sample layouts for you to try.
I've been curious about this all-in-one format of planner, to do list and diary, but found most explanations overly complicated and confusing. Miller boils things down very simple with lots of examples.
I read it in one night and will be testing out dot journaling myself this week!
It was helpful, the guides and examples were soooo good. Rachel's notes and funnies were good. And most of her quirks that she had to work out when she started journaling I already figured out a long time ago, so it doesn't bother me anymore.
However, there were three instances of bad words, on *suggested* f bomb, and one diary entry that was recorded from a historian that was inappropriate in unnecessary.
Anyway, overall, great book. I just got to scratch out the parts that are bad and I'll be ...more
i started bullet/dot journaling in 2015 in a super casual way and have gotten more fancy/obsessive over the years. this book gave me some new ideas for spreads that will be both helpful and relatively uncomplicated, so cheers for that!
