Men and the Bullet Journal: An interview | Petite Mélanie An interview with Mark behind the @MenWhoBullet account. Discussing whether there are less men who Bullet Journal than woman. And yes, men DO Bullet Journal!

I don’t know about you, but I don’t often come across men who use a Bullet Journal. Let’s face it, the Bullet Journal online community is mainly dominated by the other sex. Which is surprising, because when you think about it, the Bullet Journal was invented by a man. Yet, it seems like men who Bullet Journal are rare creatures. There could be many reasons explaining this. To get better insight, I thought I would ask a man. Here’s an interview with Mark Figueiredo, the man behind the Instagram account @MenWhoBullet.

Collections in your Bullet Journal: what are they?

So, you’ve started your new Bullet Journal. You did the basics first: you’ve included an index, a Future log, a Monthly log, and your Daily logs, all the things you need to be on your way to a more organized life. But the Bullet Journal isn’t used only as an agenda. Come into play: collections. Collections: what are they? Collections are not part of the usual daily planning: however, they can add to it nicely. Collections are unique entries, on a separate page, to write down and follow a project or a long-term goal. They are, for example, to-do lists …

And even if it’s a city we’ve visited in the past, those couple of days are still a change from our every day life. Perhaps you’ll get to enjoy that new restaurant that doesn’t have a location in …
