This has become a pet peeve of mine: bujo newbies feel overwhelmed and pressured to make their notebooks look like art when the heart of your method, Ryder, is so simple — easy even!

It’s like I said in one of my blog posts

The bujo community online is doing newbies a disservice by focusing on customizations and decorations. Of course a newbie would face overwhelm looking at this page full of color-coding, hand-written headers, and complicated layouts! I’m overwhelmed by it! But here’s the thing: all of these overwhelming things are add ons and aren’t technically a part of the bullet journal method at all!

The bullet journal method is highly customizable, so for people who want to add color and complication, it’s the perfect “blank page” to do so. I’ve done a bit of that myself. But ultimately, the method itself is much simpler.
