Blogiversary Giveaway!

The fact that I’ve stuck with the #bulletjournal and #calligraphy communities on Instagram for over two years now is a testament to so many of you all – all 75K+ of you.  More important than the numbers is the hope that I’ve been able to share my own story and ideas and thoughts about planning or bullet journaling that have been helpful to you.  To celebrate, I’d like to do a giveaway in partnership with one of my favorite brands, Rhodia.

To celebrate 2 years of blogging and 75K on Instagram I'm giving away FIVE Rhodia softcover notebooks - enter today!

  1. Planning with the bullet journal has been difficult, because I feel like I have a lot of leftover tasks that I did not complete that I have to migrate over – they are more “long term” or “someday” tasks but they still don’t get crossed off as soon as I’d like 🙂

    1. Martha, I have a maybe-do spread for tasks that have migrated at least twice. If it didn’t get done in two tries, then odds are that it’s (a) not urgent (b) doesn’t belong to a current project. When I find that I have time, and my assigned tasks are done for the day/week, I usually wander over to that spread and see what I feel like doing, then do it. For extra feel-good, once it’s done, I put it on the daily page so I get to cross it off TWICE. (I used to move it first, but guilt is bad motivator for me, haha).

  2. Congratulations, girl! After following you for over a year, I’ve tried so many of your layouts and have altered them to fit my lifestyle. One problem I have is working on my habits but having some of them turn into chores just because it’s another checkbox that I can fill in… Any advice on that?

  3. A big problem that I have encountered with planning is consistency. I keep different planners/notepads for different subjects (life, law of attraction, projects, etc…). I’d never be able to put it all into one planner, and I sometimes let myself get overwhelmed, and then I do nothing. I’m a work in progress!

  4. A problem I run into most often is my own perfectionism. I love being organized and having a plan for just about everything, but sometimes I just can’t stand to look at my own handwriting. At the same time, I don’t like having a plan planner. I would love to get better at “decorating” or spicing up my pages to make it a more enjoyable process!

  5. I’ve been doing the bullet journal system for almost a year now and the challenge I’m facing is finding the best size TN to use. I’ve been doing the personal size but thinking a larger size would be better so winning a journal here would be great so I could try it out. Congrats on your anniversary – love watching your videos!

  6. Congratulations!! I love the Rhodia notebooks! I’m using two right now. One to track my personal life and one to track my service dog’s training. My biggest issue is weeding through all the different format options to see what works for me. Plus I’m not artistic and it makes me sad everyone else’s are so pretty.

  7. The biggest problem I have with bullet journaling is using my journal consistently. I will think of things I need to add when my journal isn’t by my side, and then I later forget to add the needed bullets.

  8. Thanks for all you do, Jessica! I’ve been following your blog/videos for at least a year. I’ve found your career planning posts the most useful, as I’m currently in the process of leaving academia to find an industry job.

  9. I really enjoyed the video where you talked about why you don’t like/do five year plans. That idea of your goals/aspirations changing over time and not always being fixed really resonated with me. It even ties in with why I use a bullet journal – if I change my mind, I just flip the page and start over fresh! One thing I struggle with is checking my bullet journal in the mornings and throughout the day so I remember what I’m supposed to be doing and stay on task. I feel like I only spend time with it when I’m planning in the evening!

  10. Hi – Hearty congratulations! I really like your blog and have been following it for about a year and a half now. I did not enter the giveaway, though I was sorely tempted; I have so many notebooks and wanted to give someone else a better chance to win, even if it is microscopic, LOL:).
    Many blessings on your life’s journey,

  12. Thanks for this giveaway. As a teacher and mom, it’s been hard to consolidate everything into one bujo, I’ve been experimenting different setups getting better each time.

  14. My biggest struggle with bullet journaling is balancing my desire to be creative with my energy and mental focus. I need to stay minimalistic in my spreads to actually make and use them or else I become overwhelmed, but I constantly wish to be more creative. I end up not doing anything in my BuJo if I keep planning something intricate. A useful journal is better than an idea of a creative spread that never gets made or utilized.

  15. Congratulations on your Blog milestone! Thank you for this giveaway. My favorite video you’ve made so far was “Why I Don’t Do 5 Year Plans”–it resonated deeply with me. I also really liked your video about Bullet Journaling and anxiety. Real life, practical applications.

  16. My difficulties with bullet journaling is seeing all these creative pages and wanting to do similar items, but time and creativity make that difficult. My favorite parts of your Instagram have been the lists. Those are things I love to do because it really makes me think.

  17. The only problem I have with bullet journaling is trying to keep up with it …. I’ve sort of kept up, but I think I just either need to do a minimalistic bullet journal instead of decorating every page.

  18. I struggled with accepting that mine bullet journal is always going to be pretty simple and plain. I love seeing all the beautiful ones and all the different layouts, but I find that I just don’t take the time to do those things. I keep it simple and it keeps me on track.

  19. I love that you are continually testing new layouts and other ways to make the bullet journal work for you! The various notebook tests that you have done have been especially informative. Your blog is how I discovered Rhodia notebooks in the first place. I love my black hardcover; the paper quality is so great for such a reasonable price!

  20. At first, my biggest difficulty with bullet journaling was feeling like I wasn’t living up to the potential of the bullet journal by being super creative and making mine look all pretty. However, I then realized that this is a tool to make me more productive and to reduce my stress not make it worse. I am not that person, the super creative person, and that is ok. I practice creativity in other ways and that is what makes this world so interesting. 🙂

    Now, my biggest difficulty is actually taking the time to sit down and plan. I do so much better when I do but for some reason, I just don’t some days. 🙂

  21. I’ve been having trouble making my monthly and weekly pages useful, so I’ve resorted to pairing my bullet journal with a hobonichi weeks. I usually have to make appointments far in advance and it’s just easier to use a preprinted planner for that rather than using like the alistar method, etc.

    I’m a new teacher so your bullet journaling for teachers setup has been very helpful!
