Hi everyone! Back in February I tried bookish bullet journaling for the first time and made a post about it. I really liked putting the whole thing together but there’s definitely a reason why there hasn’t been an update on it: it was a bit of a disaster. I really tried keeping track of the whole thing but I just forgot about it halfway through the month…
This month, I decided to try again. I really felt like doing something creative, and I wanted to organize my reading a little bit and see how much reading I actually get done. And while I don’t like this set-up as much as the February one, I still like it a lot.
This is what the first page looks like. I never know what to do myself, so I kind of copied it off this Pinterest picture, because I’m definitely not creative enough to think of something myself. I later added the paper with the plants because the next page has a calender which I colored in, and it bled through pretty badly so I tried to hide that.
When you turn the page, this is the first spread you see. On the left there’s a little calender on which I’m planning to track my blog posts. I’m usually not that organized when it comes to my blog and just post whenever I want to, but I thought this calender might help me a little bit.
On the right page I have a ‘stats’ section, on which I want to keep track of my blog/social media statistics and how much my following grows, or how many followers I lose. I also have my #ARCAugust TBR, which is my TBR for this whole month (you can also see this here), and little boxes next to it on which I can mark whether I’ve read, reviewed and/or posted my review.
This is the next and last spread. On the right there’s a reading log on which I mark down how much I’ve read every day. Every little dot counts as 10 pages read, and the whole line is 250 pages. As you can see, my reading has been quite successful this month and I’m very happy about it.
On the left I write down every single book I read this month, and right in front of that I put down a colour which corresponds to the colours in the reading log. This way I can see which book I read on what day.
I really hope I’ll be able to keep up with my bullet journal this month. The reading log is definitely going to be tricky, because that’s quite easy to forget, and I still have no idea how to actually mark down audiobooks on it, but we’ll see. If you have any advice for me, please let me know!
