We understand that a beginner of the bullet journal is always looking for a direction to start the journey.

After digging deep into the internet, we've found that there are too many ways to start a bullet journal, and it could be confusing. In our opinion, we should start with the minimal one, which is the original version of the bullet journal created by Ryder Carroll.

Minimal Type

The reasons are simple. First of all, it is the foundation of the bullet journal. Secondly, a pen and a notebook are all you need to start your bullet journal. (You should learn the system behind before you start.) Remember to keep it simple, drawing or decorating are not necessary. You can find more information on the following Instagram links:

Aesthetic Type

Some of the "addicts" will end up treating their bullet journal as an artwork. Look at the colors, drawings,  washi tapes and letterings that decorate the journals:
