How do you get started on your journal?


Well, you can start right now with the right supplies, granted you have something to schedule or some plans in your life.

I ended up ordering what seems like the preferred notebook for the journal, the Leuchtturm 1917 from Amazon, along with these pens and this small ruler.

The notebook is the medium-sized, dotted version. It’s measured 5.8-inches by 8.2 inches and I’ve found it to be perfect for my needs.

The pens and ruler were a ‘frequently bought together’ recommendation on Amazon (which I hardly fall for). The pens are Staedtler Triplus Fineliner 0.3mm. They have worked great for me so far, and apparently last a long time!

The ruler is the perfect size to fit right inside the notebook. It’s 6-inches tall, and I definitely prefer to use it over free-handing.

A notebook and a pen is basically all you need, but I’m one of those that likes to make things pretty. I like to use different colors for different things (work, blog, personal, etc.). You are more than welcome to use whatever the heck you want!
