In the Bullet Journal (henceforth referred as BuJo) world, these terms are thrown around a lot, especially regarding notebooks and pens. If you’re a newbie, you must be wondering what these mean.
This is a short post explaining the two.
In the above picture, can you see the trace of ink which is written on the other side? (Sorry I could enhance it only that much to be seen) Basically you can see (and sometimes feel the depression) of marks from the other side. This is called ghosting. Many people hate ghosting and try to find pens and books so that it does not occur. Personally, I don’t mind ghosting.
In this picture, you can see ghosting on the left but some places the ink bleeds and also leaves spots on the right. This effect is when I put even a little bit of pressure. So you can imagine, if I write over something twice or doodle, how much of damage the next two pages face. I think we can agree that everyone hates bleeding, because we just don’t feel like writing on those pages.
What is your opinion on ghosting and bleeding? Are you fine with it or do you absolutely hate it?
