Dot Journaling – The Book
When I first heard the term ‘dot journaling’, I wasn’t sure what that was. Then I was sent a free review copy of this book, Dot
Journaling―A Practical Guide: How to Start and Keep the Planner, To-Do
List, and Diary That’ll Actually Help You Get Your Life Together by Rachel Wilkerson Miller, and the book explained everything. Every thing. I loved it and am inspired to finally try (again) my own dot journal, also known as a bullet journal.
The book has wonderful (and plentiful) illustrations, ideas and examples. I was particularly impressed with the variety of spreads and all the ways you can customize the journal to what fits your needs.
I was familiar with bullet journaling and had tried this for a few
months in 2016 – a very basic attempt. Although it is extremely flexible and customizable,
there is still a learning curve and a commitment to the process.
The author addresses concerns (commitment, learning curve, dissatisfaction with penmanship) and offers ideas on how to overcome them.
I am inspired by her work and her words and look forward to creating my own 2017 (what remains) bullet journal.
