So, you may be asking yourself, what is a monthly cover page for and do I need a monthly cover page in my bullet journal?
This is along post with lots of ideas. If you want to get straight to a specific month cover, just use our table of content below.
What Is A Bullet Journal Monthly Cover Page?
At it’s most basic a monthly cover page is a single or double page in your journal that has the current month and usually some form or art journaling.
Unlike most other pages in your journal, this page is pretty much just a fun space to let your creativity run wild.
I usually find with my monthly spreads they are so chockablock with all the information I need for the month, I don’t have leftover space to let my imagination run free or practice things like my hand lettering and doodles.
A monthly cover page is a fun and easy way to make sure I get creative at least once a month.
Do I Need Bullet Journal Monthly Cover Page?
Firstly, if you are new to bullet journaling, I recommend you start by heading over to our great post on how to start a bullet journal which is full of all the information and hacks you need to begin your bujo journey.
Once you know the basics it will be easier to decide if you should have a monthly cover in your planner.
I already covered why a monthly cover is great for creativity but it can also be a really practical component of any journal. But, how?
Well, a cover page is a natural and easy way to separate the months in your bullet journal.
If you have an odd page left over after a month of journaling a cover page for the next month is a fantastic way to use that space and continue the flow of your journal seamlessly.
They are also a fun way to introduce a theme for the month as well as a space in your journal to reflect on what things you love about the season or month.
What to Put on a Monthly Cover Page
Technically all you need to have is the name of the month on a cover page but here are some ideas that you could add:
- A monthly calendar
- A quote that is meaningful to you or reflects the month/season
- Your mantra for the month.
- A monthly goal
- The things you love about that month and time of year.
