Bullet Journal is an excellent tool to get your random thoughts organized and make something productive from them. Bullet Journal is also an amazing tool for improving your blog or life in general.
Getting things written down not only organize them but it also let’s your mind to relax and focus on things your doing instead of trying to remember things you should do or remember in future.
Bullet Journal in a Nutshell
The idea of bullet journal is kind of combine bullet point notes, to do lists and calendars. You can start writing your long time goals. Let’s say you list all bigger goals for year 2017 as a bullet pointed list. Then you’ll split those goals into monthly, weekly and daily goals.
You can also use some pages for writing or drawing ideas that you’ll do at some point when you have time. You can use your bullet journal to plan your entire life or just part of it. For example I’m using mine for my blogging related goals and improving my social. However doing a bullet journal for things like studies or work tasks would also be helpful for sure.
It’s very satisfying and addicting to get to mark things done. It’s also nice to see how much you’ve already achieved if you go weeks or months back to check all the tasks you’ve already done.
How Can a Bullet Journal Help You to Improve Your Life and Blog?
You can gather all the ideas in one place and actually remember them. Having things only in your mind might (and at some point will) cause some forgetting. Having things written down releases your memory capacity to other things and also keeps things organized in one place.
By planning your blog content in prior you can improve the quality of your content significantly. If you decide only a day before what you’ll post next day you might realize that you don’t have enough time to shoot and edit all the photos and write a killer content. If you have all planned and scheduled let’s say a week in prior it’s so much easier to find time to make it excellently.
It’s also fun and relaxing to have things organized and not always use technology. Even thought I love technology from mobiles to cameras and laptops it’s sometimes relaxing for your mind and eyes not to watch the screen but write with actually pen and paper sometimes.
My Experience of Using a Bullet Journal for Planning My Blog
I love ticking the boxes, so I love bullet journals. Lists and excels are my best friends I think there isn’t a thing I haven’t made a list (or some) of. If you’re a list enthusiast too, you’ll definitely fell in love with bullet journal. It’s easy, you can make it visually beautiful or simple – whichever you wish and it’ll satisfy your need to make lists and keep things organized.
After starting my bullet journal my posting has been more regular and I have stronger feeling than ever that I’m actually improving my content and networking more effectively than ever. It’s because bullet journal has helped me to manage my time better.
