My July Bullet Journal

my july bujo

Last month, I did a sort-of traditional flip through (see it here) but this month, I’m shaking it up a bit.

Here’s how this post will be going:

  • main monthly pages
  • my weeklies and how I tried different layouts
  • a few of my favourite daily spreads (which are not already in the weekly picture shots)

So, let’s dive in, shall we?

Main monthly spreads





The normal calendar and traditional log didn’t work much well for me and I tended to not refer them most of the time. So in August, I’ll be changing it up and adding a traditional calendar spread.


Also, I didn’t really use this page. I’ll keep it on till I finish this book as I suspect I might use it for college stuff. If its still left blank, I’ll doodle a quote there later (my answer to any empty space—doodle!).


The tracker, I really liked! I could see my patterns and habits in one look. A few points didn’t work out such as study (college just started so no) and write (I didn’t write at all—at all!). I’ll scrap those but I’m keeping the rest.


I added a books to finish in 2016 because otherwise, I’ll just procrastinate to get to them. I didn’t read any of them in July, but I’ve planned on reading them in Aug.

Now, the weeklies:




Since my book is small (size A6), I couldn’t do elaborate spreads and didn’t require 2-page spreads yet, so I only tweaked a bit. This last one I liked so I’m going to use that until I need to change.


Some of my dailies:




And last, my August setup:



The calendar!


After these, I have an August blog post schedule spread which is like a traditional log. In the middle of July, I wanted to know what posts I’ve planned and scheduled so I added it in August. I’ve already filled in the page some so I can’t show you the picture *top secret stuff*.


What did you think of my bullet journal? Do you bullet journal? If not, do you want to?

    1. Yes yes do start! And come and wail with me on woes like “whyyy are my spreads not beautiful like those ones on insta” and listen to me while I say “dot grid books are too expensive and I don’t get washi tape here!”

  1. Loved this blog post! I’ve been wanting to try bullet jounralling for a while now, however have yet to start. You’ve really motivated me to do so though! What kind of journal do you use? Also thanks for following my blog, maybe in the distant future I’ll have a blog post about bullet journalling 😉

    1. Since moleskines and Leuchtturms are pretty expensive here, I use a regular diary notebook. It was the one I liked best that was available, lol

    1. You just have to put more effort lol. My bullet journal right now sucks compared to July, I hardly have time to do more than write the days, dates and tasks!

      1. It’s my first time using a bullet journals so it’s pretty much a big fat mess. I’ve tinkered around with dividers, colours, sections which have all been pretty useful! I have a whole divider just for to-do lists like guest posting, posting etc.. I then I have a place of rpost ideas, social media etc… And then a place for blog drafts. The 3 sections are working for me pretty well so far, but they do not look pretty at all! I’m trying to make it work for me at the moment, but my next bullet journal, should be more nice and colourful because I should’ve worked things out by then!

      2. I would really love to know more about your sections, I didn’t quite get it right, I think!
        I’ve been bullet journalling for four months, but I’m not satisfied with my spreads yet. I’m experimenting as much as I can with college and busy schedules.
