Dotti Diaries is birthed out of the BuJo (Bullet Journal) movement.

I like the concept of Bullet Journaling, so I read up on how and why it was created and studied on how to do it. As I did this I came to the conclusion that all the guides on how to bullet journal were, in fact, defeating the whole purpose of the method.

From what I understand, Bullet Journaling breaks away from the traditional diaries, planners and notebooks and allows it's users to be creative and personalise tasks, goals and plans. 

When I put Bullet Journaling into practice for myself, I found that I still needed a dated diary to plan ahead for appointments, events and holidays. But I had already fallen in love with dot grid notebooks!

I decided that I would combine a dated diary with dot grid notepaper. So, I purchased a dot grid notebook and spent hours drawing up a planner on the left side of a double page spread - I left the right side blank (except for the dot grid) for my own weekly notes. Needless to say the process of drawing my own planner took ages and was riddled with mistakes! BUT... the result was a usable BuJo Planner that I have now been using happily for more than 2 years.

All Dotti Diaries are printed on dot grid paper. Some are more guided than others (ie they have predesigned lists or areas for you to complete), some have nothing but a few lines defining the days for your planner (for the people who want total control over their pages).

That brings me to another point. When I used to shop for a diary, I ALWAYS found it really difficult to find one that did not reduce the space to write in for Saturday and Sundays. I needed to have the space at the weekend as I did for my week days. So, when I designed my own diary, I was free to allocate exactly the same amount of space for each day!

Now is the time to share my ideas... I hope you like them!
