Good morning you guys, I hope you’ve had a nice start to your day! 🙂
I figured I would try to get back into blogging by writing a post I absolutely LOVE to share: my Bullet Journaling 101 series! And seeing how we’re over a week into June already (which, I’m sorry! I wish I had set this up and shared it sooner, but I’m still on some sort of break as of writing this post) I figured it’s about time!
And actually, I had SO much fun setting up this month’s theme – especially because it’s quite different to what I’ve been doing the past couple of months. I have to say, this might be my favorite theme I’ve ever had! And I finally ended up using that washi tape! I’ve been looking at it for months now (I bought it a couple of months ago at Lidl – of all places!), trying to find a way to use it – and this was just perfect.
Up first, let’s take a look at my cover page which I’m so in love with??? You might’ve seen a version of this on Twitter or Instagram stories (or you know if you haven’t yet, you should 100% follow me 😉 ). Also, I think I might have just caused myself a bit of a problem by using washi here because now I want even more washi (update: I got more washi!) that I can use for upcoming months. *wallet= 😭😭😭*
I’m usually also not the biggest doodler but I figured I would try something different this month and while I’m not 100% happy with the way the laptop turned out, I really like the little camera and book stack up at the top!
The next thing I like to set up is usually my month at a glance with the new releases listed underneath (which I completely forgot to add 🤦🤦🤦) so it’s easy to check off and keep track off! Usually, this would be on the same page as my cover page, but that wasn’t the case this month, so I left the page next to it blank for a to-do list as the following spreads needing to be on two pages next to each other. 🙂
And because I really like the system I have going at the moment, the next spread that I set up was for me to keep track of my blog posts and how they do for the month of June. Also, this is hopefully going to make me plan a bit more again as I’ve fallen off that bandwagon too quickly after my last blogging break. Honestly, you’d think I’d have learned my lesson by now but apparently not. 🤦🤦🤦
This time around, I also played with color a bit more in each individual spread and I have to say, I quite enjoy it! Usually, I’d just add the date in the month’s color but as you can see, I also highlighted the days that a post is supposed to go up. Plus, all that washi.
And now!!! You guys. I actually changed up a spread??? I kept seeing both booksandlala and lottelikesbooks‘ monthly reading trackers and I really liked the look of them – especially Lotte’s so I decided to finally give it a try too. But, since I often listen to audiobooks or read ebooks, I decided to track how much of a book I read each day (in percent).
While I absolutely loved my previous tracker, it often looked a bit messy by the end of the month (click here for my May one that I shared on Twitter) so I’m hoping that this is going to help keep things more organized looking!
But also, change is good, right? So hopefully by just changing up one little spread, it’s going to keep me motivated to try more in the future and more important to stick to bullet journaling! 🙂
Lastly, obviously, we have my monthly habit tracker! I can’t believe I am still actively using this each month! Though, to be honest, I kind of fell off the tracking wagon the last couple of days of May, but as you can see here, I’m back to it again already. 🙂
I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this before, but I absolutely love to separate my tracker into weeks each month. I feel like it puts less pressure on me to keep doing all the things and gives me a fresh start each week to do better. So if that’s something you might be struggling with, maybe give this a try! 🙂
And that’s pretty much the last page that I have currently set up in my journal for the month of June! You might remember that I also use this to journal in, whenever I feel like it (which didn’t really happen in May, oops!) so that’s what I could add next or maybe some of the collections I want to put into my journal. Or anything, really. The possibilities are limitless! 😀
How about you guys? Have you set up your June spreads yet? Or were you too busy to get to it yet? If you’ve got them set up, did you share them anywhere? I’d love to see what you guys come up with!
