How Dream Dash Journal the blog began.

Dream Dash Journal was created in Spring 2018.

It was originally inspired by Bullet Journal.

The Bullet Journal method of journal-writing is about writing tidy lists. Nice, neat lists to increase productivity & get organized.

Great concept!

To be honest, when I first heard of Bullet Journal I was like What?! Someone took the concept of writing neat and tidy lists and made it a brand?? Genius!!

I loved the idea that someone turned the ancient human practice of list-making into a brand. How powerful, how intuitive! But as a writer and avid journaler, the Bullet Journal way of journaling felt completely opposite to my own natural writing tendencies.

When it comes to journaling, my lists look anything but neat. More like a mad scientist wrote them!

Thinking about this led me to wonder:

What about those of us who are a bit messier expressing our thoughts?  What about the doodles in the margins? The scribbles, circled words, and made up abbreviations? 

I wanted to create my own brand around what might be thought of as “The opposite of Bullet Journal.”

So I named it Dream Dash Journal! As in you dash (synonym for write quickly) your dreams down in your journal! And here we are today!

How Can Dream Dash Journal Inspire You?

In the blog, I like to put out articles that will inspire people to write, self-reflect, and be creative. That’s why you’ll find so many journal writing ideas on Dream Dash Journal.

I believe journaling to be one of the best things one can do to improve mental health, become more creative, and work on personal development. Journaling is awesome for self-reflection, self-care, and more.

On the blog, you will also find articles about art journaling, occasional art projects, and selling art on Etsy. Along with journaling, creating art is an amazing way to release stress and just feel happy. Getting lost in art has got to be one of the best feelings ever.

Spirituality is also a big topic on the blog. Along with positive words of inspiration, such as inspirational and motivational quotes. I feel that spirituality is a fascinating topic to discuss. I aim to be inclusive when discussing spirituality, but also authentic. And positive quotes? I simply love to share them. To create the pinnable images for Pinterest and spread the joy.

I hope you love the blog and it inspires you with positive words, creative ideas, and tons of motivation to live your best life!

I created this journal around when I started this blog in 2018 and had no idea what I was doing when I created it. It was an entrepreneurial experiment. Read more about my Amazon journey here.

About me

I’ve always been a dabbler, creative, and have worked so many odd jobs over the years. I have sold on Amazon, Etsy, eBay, at craft shows, and in art galleries. I feel extremely fulfilled being a creative entrepreneur.

In addition to blogging and Etsy selling, I enjoy reading, being outside in nature, inventing recipes, homemaking, and being a Mom of 2 littles + one grown-up kid. I’m from New England but now live in beautiful sunny southwest Florida. Yay for the beach!

Cheers!
