YouTube!!

So I’ve done it…I’ve made a YouTube channel…and posted a video!!

I wanted to make a video to go alongside my blog post on my May bullet journal set up which you can read here.

Here is the video that i made, check it out.

And here is a link to my YouTube channel.

I want to do more videos on my bullet journal as well as my blog posts, and will be doing other videos as well.

May Bullet Journal set-up

I had a lot of fun setting up my bullet journal for this month, so thought I would write a post to show you all how I set up for the month of May. Its not exactly how I want it right now but I’m working on it and will get it how I want it with time.

I’m using the Moleskine classic squared notebook.

I started with making a key for my bullet journal that I can follow, and then moved on to my index pages.

For the first actual page I done a year overview for 2017.

I had to make a books to read page as I have so many books that I want to read, and once I have read each one I will colour the books in.

Next is my May title page

I am keeping track of when I drink plenty of water each day, eat well, check Instagram, twitter and WordPress, publish a new blog post, and when I have read my book and eat breakfast as I very rarely eat in the morning but want to try and eat breakfast more.

I then made a page for my blog this includes blog post ideas that I have had during the month and then a blog stats tracker in the corner to track at the beginning of each month.

This is followed by a page with goals that I have set myself.

And then the weekly spreads which aren’t perfect and I’ve got to add things to the weeks ahead as I have done each week of May already, and I can just add bits that I want when I want to.

There is so much more that I want to gradually add into my bullet journal as there is other things that I know I want to keep track of, but that’s the best thing with a bullet journal you can add and take away things as much as you want, you only need to add what you need.

Bullet Journal

Ever since I first seen a blog post on this I have been really intrigued by them,even more the past few days.I have spent the past few days reading blog posts and watching YouTube videos on bullet journals and starting one etc. I watched and read so much that it made me want to start one myself so much.

I went out to Waterstones and bought the Moleskine hard cover squared notebook, this was £13.99.

I also bought some papermate ink joy pens in different colours so as I will be able to add some colour to my bullet journal, these were £1.50 in Tesco. I also got some washi tape from WHSmith for £2.79.

The bullet journal was originally created by Ryder Carroll, to find out more about bullet journal I recommend going over to the website bulletjournal.com. There is also so many blog posts and YouTube videos that you can read and watch so definitely check some of those out as well. There is also loads on Pinterest as well.

I’m going to make a start on my bullet journal now and I will be doing more posts on this to show how I set mine up etc.

I would also like to know if anyone else uses a bullet journal and where you get inspiration from for different spreads.
