Pages to include in a
Word of the Year bullet Journal

Here is a walk through of my Word of the Year bullet journal set-up for 2020. I also compare it to 2019’s journal set-up. I hope you are inspired to set up your own journal. It’s so nice to set up the monthly calendar as I go in the journal. That way there aren’t any blank pages in between entries. 

List of Pages I include in my
Word of the Year bullet journal

To begin, I designate pages by putting the name of the page lightly in pencil. Sticky notes could also be used. This gives me a chance to plan without commitment to the page.

I’m using a Leuchtturm1917 Medium A5 dotted hardcover notebook. The outside size is 5.75” x 8.25”, 250 numbered pages and two pages to record index/content. It comes with 2 attached ribbon bookmarks.

Of course the journal can be totally personalized with your own pages reflecting your own interests. Here is what I’m including this year:

  • Inside cover – Word + name & info
  • List of Contents with page numbers
  • Themes
  • Year at a Glance
  • Table of Contents or Monthly highlights or goals
  • Word of the Year Definitions & personalized text
  • Word of the Year Scriptures
  • Word of the Year Quotes/Affirmations
  • My personal exploration focus for the year 
  • Books read
  • Movies, Media TV Music
  • Family Birthdays
  • Interests & Ideas
  • Stencils/Projects/Goals
  • Monthly Calendars
  • Anything Else that is important 

What if there are special pages I want to add later,
or wish I would've added?

This almost always happens to me. What I do when I want to add a page and wish it was at the beginning is: put Washi tape on the edges of the page or both facing pages if it takes up two pages. Then I note the page number and list it in the Contents pages. If I really wanted to revisit it, I could make a tab.
