    I searched a bit and didn't see a post on this already, so here's for hoping I didn't miss it. This is my first "new post" ^_^

    For anyone unfamiliar, a bullet journal is an analog organization and planning system developed by Ryder Carroll. From bulletjournal.com -
    I have been bullet journaling for about two and a half years now, and it has given me a lot of insight into how I need thoughts and information organized. Traditional planners have never really worked for me: I could never fit the information in the places for it, or the month set up would be perfect but the day setup no good for me. I also appreciate that you can get fancy with it, but the fanciness is a personal preference and ultimately not necessary. I think the fact that it's more of a system than just a physical tool is a big part of why I've been able to use it for so long-- I needed the "how" of planning and organizing thoughts.

    So, any fellow bullet journal-ers here? What kind of notebook(s) are you using?

    I have a Leuchtturm1917 for my everyday, catch-all bullet journal, and I just picked up a basic spiral notebook with a cover I liked for a camming-specific bullet journal.

    I started bullet journaling some time ago, but I have a hard time getting consistent with it. I like the concept and I love to see what my girlfriend is doing with hers, so I always go back to it.
    I think I might be able to stick to it for real now. It's really helpful with reminding me about things like posting on Twitter, sending at least a daily snap, working on new videos and uploading them.
    Since I don't have much free time (or much artistic talent) I bought a 'ready-to-be-used' journal, with categories already sorted out and the agenda portion pre-prepared.
    I use the same journal for my everyday life stuff and my camming stuff. I mainly use it as an agenda only for now.

    What do you journal about your camming? Do you keep track of things other than the typical 'agenda' info? I personally keep a lot of info, but in an Excel document.

    Interesting concept. though, seems a bit overly complex in some ways with the layouts, etc. Someone a while back had mentioned PandaPlanner as their preferred planner. But, bullet journaling seems to be more neutral and can be done in any book.

    Gonna give this a try.

    Been using spiral notebooks for years, but very chaotic, unorganized....

    The thing with Bullet Journals is that they can be as simple or complex as you want! For sure when looking on Pinterest or a blog you might find examples that are really elaborated, but that's simply because people who will be proud to show off their journal are also the ones who have skills and like to put a lot of time into it. I should take a pic of mine and show you haha, it's really simple in my case!

    I get it can be as much or as little as one wants. Just seems a little complex to me. If there's an event, I usually throw it in my online calendar because I always have my phone with my and is how I do my tasks as well (Google tasks). I do like the fact that this is paper, and has a forward movement and review when going forward. Just a bit different than how I normally do it is all.

    I've heard about this previously and have been tempted to try it out. Especially with how some things have been going at work there are some concepts with the bullet journal that I would like to try to better organize my thoughts and sequences.

    I always forget that people make ready-to-be-used ones! That's a great idea :) I have also struggled with consistency (always have, with planners), and I kind of like just starting at the date it is now instead of having to leave unused pages. I need to get back to making some sort of entry every day, even if it's just the date--my days feel more grounded when I do.

    My camming BuJo has a lot of notes from forums, wikis, reddit, etc.. Things like equipment I need, questions to ask myself, suggested computer programs, how to set up lighting, and what the different types of shows entail. I also used it to brainstorm for my model name and to work out what I wanted to put on my profile. In my new one I'm putting a log of whenever I go on cam, expenses and earnings, countdown ideas, room topics, show ideas, a wishlist, and a checklist for what stage of making videos I'm in, to name a handful lol.

    There is definitely a sort of complexity in how customizable and flexible it is, especially once you get into the collections aspect of it. I think some sort of hybrid would be ideal for me, one where I don't have to start all my pages from scratch, that sort of thing... my main problem is that I'm always changing how I set up my pages to find what works for me. Really, I think I need to get a printer and a binder and do it that way. That PandaPlanner you linked earlier does look really interesting, so maybe I'll check it out sometime. I still use GCalendar and have flirted with the idea of using google tasks or evernote or something to essentially bullet journal digitally, but I always end up feeling rather restricted, and more to the point I just get distracted AF on computers/my phone. There is now a companion app for bullet journaling, but I haven't checked it out yet.

    Clutch away, I've heard those are great!! I may even try it out myself!
