Dot Journaling – A Practical Guide by Rachel Wilkerson Miller
Genre: Nonfiction Learning | Pub: 07.2017
A new year is officially upon us! What better way to kick-off the year than with a note about my new favorite way to stay organized? I recently read and reviewed Dot Journaling – A Practical Guide by Rachel Wilkerson Miller. I absolutely loved it and was inspired to write this post.
Bookish Blog Post Inspired by:
I totally connected with the author’s personal story written throughout the book because I’ve kept journals for large portions of my life. I’ve always loved writing about my innermost thoughts and feelings and although there are periods of time that I forget about journaling, I always end up circling back to it. Surprisingly, I’ve always held on to old agendas, possibly because when life gets busy I tend to stop journaling and I want to be able to go back through notes if I ever want to look something up.
In the process of packing to move I went through miscellaneous things I still had my parent’s house which led to me looking through old diaries and journals from when I was growing up and reminiscing. While skimming through I was surprised at the lack of detail on important events in my life and also laughed at the lengthy details noted of seemingly insignificant things. As I’ve begun to keep a dot journal I’ve found that a two-book approach suits me best. I don’t like spending time creating daily dot journal spreads and I found an undated daily journal that is laid out almost exactly how I like my daily spread!
Now I use the daily book plus my dot journal which contains my annual trackers, and then monthly trackers with room for daily journaling. When I had set up the daily spreads I had an entire page for notes and I found I wasn’t usually using the whole page, which ends up becoming a waste of space in a dot journal. I can now take up as much or as little space each day in the journaling section as I want.
