My 2017 & January Bullet Journal Set Up

I thought today I would share my 2017 set up in my bullet journal. I think this was the first time I’ve gone into a new year while using a bullet journal so I was quite excited to get everything set up. I know a lot of people also say you should get a new journalΒ for every year but I haven’t done that because I’ve only had this notebook for 2 months (also it’s a silly idea).

I try to keep my bullet journal quite simple. I love some of the really elaborate ones you find on Instagram but I don’t want that for my bujo. I usually just use washi tape for a little decoration. Since it was the start of the year I also used this ‘hello’ sticker I got in a pack from Hobbycraft. I only have a small collection of pens I use now, the Muji mechanical pencil, 0.38 gel pen and the Staedtler Fineliner. I also use the Zebra Mildliners to add a bit of colour.

I decided to keep my future log to just two pages. I don’t expect to be doing a huge amount of future planning so I didn’t need much space for it. I’m sure this layout was based on one I saw in a YouTube video but I’ve totally forgotten who’s video it was.

My health tracker for the year. I know people usually have a full page for one month but I’ve been tracking the same six things since last August and I don’t see that changing anytime soon. Another good thing about this is it’s easier to compare months when they are right next to each other.

My blog stats page is exactly the same as last year. I didn’t see any point in changing it since I liked the layout.

My blog posts page is really a way of tracking what social media platforms I’ve posted to. I like having this since my memory is terrible and I can never remember what I’ve posted where. Also it’s useful if I have book reviews that also need to be posted to Netgalley or BookBridgr.

My monthly page for January. It’s still quite empty but it will fill up as the month goes along. I will also sometimes go back and add noteworthy events in as a way of journaling.

Thanks for reading.

  1. Really nicely and neatly organised! I could do with you penning my journal for me, it’s quite messy! Haha. I’m terrible at being neat. Hopefully this helps your 2017/Jan to be productive πŸ™‚

    1. Yeah I used to use Google Calendar for a while. The thing with that is it’s really more for events not tasks. The thing I like about the bullet journal is I can write out everything I need to do each day.
