Every year around August, I get this intense need for structure and organization. Last summer, it happened in July and thus, started my bullet journaling adventure. It only lasted for the summer, and was only brought back in time for finals when I desperately needed organization. This year, I started my bullet journal up again at the start of this month after having three weeks off from school.
I’ve come the conclusion that these bursts of productivity are directly related to having three months off from school. Personally, it’s too much time, and it’s part of the reason why I even started blogging. This blogs provides that structure and organization to my week.
Another reason is because I need an outlet to write consistently. Journaling, if I could bring myself to do it everyday, probably wouldn’t be sufficient because it’s personal and also lacks structure. It’s unchallenging for me as a writer. Plus, in my most recent journalism course, I was introduced to blog writing and fell in love with it. Not only has organization and structure been added to my daily routine, but also to my blog posts as well.
Finally, when I started this blog a month ago, I had no idea what I wanted my content to be. Hence, why my blog is titled after my name. I knew I wanted to mention books in some capacity, but I never thought about turning it into a book blog. (Technically, I still haven’t but I’m getting the hang of it.) At the heart of it all, books and organization are kind of my thing.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this getting to know me in this celebration post of the one month anniversary of my blog and because I fell behind in my reading this month. When and why did you start your own blog? How many times did I write organization and/or structure in this post? (Answer: too many).
