Starting a bullet journal can be extremely overwhelming but it doesn’t have to be. Sometimes all you need to start is a little inspiration and advice. Blogs can be an extremely useful resource for both new and old bullet journalists. As well as giving you design ideas they can show you different innovative ways to use your journal, and create a community of supportive bujo junkies. Here are five of the best bullet journal bloggers that can inspire you to start your own journal.
Of course where else to start but with the original creator of the bullet journal, Ryder Carroll. The website provides a great foundation and introduction to the bullet journal system. It’s a back to basics style that can help you recognise what’s important at the start of your journey. There’s also a blog that hosts guest posts and explores the way others use their bullet journals.
