I started … um … a while ago?  (goes and looks at old pages) January of this year.  I got interested when I read Keeping a Bullet Journal for Writers by Amanda Hackwith (which I’m pretty sure was originally published in January?  But then, thisContinue reading “Ha ha ha ha ha yes I have a bullet journal and yes I’m blogging about it ha ha ha ha ha …”
