Bullet Journal: My April Set Up - christina77star

April is here and that means a brand new set up for my bullet journal. Exciting stuff!!! All through the month I've been seeing what works and what doesn't and also what other changes I want to make, so today I'll share with you my new layout which is slightly different from March.

The first big difference is that I've decided to create two separate monthly spreads - one personal and one for my blog. I've been contemplating for some time now, as to whether I should have a different bullet journal for my blog or not. But I've decided to give it another month, and instead to try and separate the two with different spreads.

So the first one is my personal monthly spread. I tried to fit in as many things as possible in the two page layout. I needed the monthly view, because I like to take notes and plan ahead things, and this way I can see the whole month at once. Also, I moved the tracker on this page and I included only the personal things that I want to track this month. I realised that during March I wasn't going back to my tracker page every day, so I was forgetting to note down things. The end result is a quite empty tracker, even though I promise you I had been good most of the days. :) Lastly, I added to two sections for my goals and my to-dos for this month.

The second one is the monthly spread for my blog. I've changed up some things in this one. Again I like the monthly view because I can plan my blog posts, any seminars or webinars I want to attend and so on. I added two trackers on the bottom left corner, where I only track my blog posts and my instagram uploads - just to see how consistent I am this month. Next to those, I added 5 boxes separating the 5 key areas I want to focus the most this month: my newsletter, my blog posts, my blog/website, Pinterest and my Etsy store. I find that I focus and work better when I divide things in categories. Lastly, on the top right corner I added a column for my monthly goals for my blog.

You've noticed that I didn't add any section for Instagram in my monthly spread. That is because Instagram has two whole pages to itself this month! One page is for all the ideas I have and I want to create for IG.

And the other one is called Insta-Plan where I plan and write what I want to upload for Instagram each day of the month. That way I can plan ahead and create all the things I want. I got this idea from Sarah from New Leaf Book Nook and her guest post she wrote for Boho Berry.

Next is my gratitude log which I love and of course I had to include in this month's set up as well. Tried to change the colours a bit and decided to write everything in blue this time.

This month I decided to focus on my handwriting and my handlettering. I've ordered some Tombow Dual Brush Pens and I can't wait to start playing with them. And what better way to get inspired and keep up with it other than taking part in some challenges? I've chosen 3 challenges this month: Rock Your Hand Writing, Quoted April 2016 and Expand Your Style April.

Lastly but not least is my weekly spread for the first week of April. It is essentially the same one like last week's, I just changed a bit the labels and the separation in order to add some colour.

So there you have it! This is my set up for April and I'm super excited for this month! I'm sure it's going to be full of adventure, nice surprises and excitement! Have you made any changes in your monthly set up?
