Dot Journaling: A Practical Guide: How to Start and Keep the Planner, To-Do List, and Diary That’ll Actually Help You Get Your Life Together Reviews
Even before reading this book I considered myself to be a very organized person. I already have a lot of my own systems that are very functional for calendars, lists, schedules etc. But I heard this book recommended by Jenn from one of the Book Riot podcasts, and it sounded awesome. From what I can tell about her personality, she is also someone who is already very organized but she said that she herself found it was a nice way to pick up some more tips and streamline her methods. I was especial ...more
4.5/5 stars :)
Bullet journaling is all over Pinterest. The amount of pins with tips and advice on how to get started is overwhelming, so it was nice to read a book that boiled everything down in one space. I've kept a journal since elementary school, so while I like the tracking aspects of bullet journaling, it isn't something I feel I need to invest a lot of time -- and wasabi tape -- into. That being said, I did get some ideas I'll incorporate in my present journal.
I have been considering journaling to help me organise information and was looking for ideas on how to proceed. This book contains much advice as well a number of examples which you can use or adapt.
Overall I have found this a useful resource.
[Read to prepare for a bullet journaling workshop at my library.] Very practical with photos of example layouts and not too much "blah blah" in between. The fun facts about diaries and journals throughout history were a nice touch.
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!
As a newbie bullet journalist that has spent countless hours watching videos, searching spread ideas, and working on my own spreads/pages, I felt this book was a good intro to bullet journaling. I did get maybe 4 great ideas for spreads from this, but some spreads weren't photographed very well and couldn't be entirely seen. I appreciated that different writing tools were mentioned and swatched, BUT what about an actual bullet journal comparison? I also felt the book ended quite abruptly.
I'm oddly drawn to bullet journaling, but also feel like I'm about to get a stress-induced panic attack when looking at really beautiful journals people have made. I read this on some friends' recommendations and like how it stresses that it is perfectly ok to keep your journal simple and non-artsy. I might try it. Maybe.
