Journaling notebooks for summer
A high quality notebook makes a world of a difference when you’re journaling. You can journal on any scrap of paper or cheap notebook, but having a nice notebook makes you a lot more likely to actually sit down to write.
Bullet journal notebooks are popular for journaling. I personally prefer spiral or coil bound notebooks that lie flat. My Japanese brother-in-law prefers bound notebooks and says spiral notebooks are uncommon in Japan. If you’re not sure which you prefer, try a couple of notebook styles to see which you enjoy writing in more.
Whatever notebook you select, make sure it has the type of page you like whether that’s blank, lined, boxes, or grid dot. Also, double check the listing or physical journal to make sure you like the line spacing. Journal notebook line spacing can vary widely.
You may also want to look for acid free paper. Acid free paper doesn’t turn yellow and brittle with age, which is nice if you plant to keep your journal. My grandfather kept a diary for most of his adult life and we have dozens of his casebound journals. Because they were written on acid free paper, even the old journals are still supple and easy to read. It’s so cool to leaf through them and read his thoughts.
And, of course, you can always journal on your free printable mermaid journal pages! Download information is lower down in the post.
