I've tried bullet journaling before, but I always go back to my rings. However, I did discover I did like having a book that I could just open and start writing in. Currently, I use it every day as a faith journal. I take part in different topical scripture writing "challenges" so I am writing scripture in it daily, I also take Bible Study notes, do SOAP devotions, etc.
I took the rings out of my personal Malden and am using it as a cover for the Stalogy. It was easy to do and I don't regret it. Do you use a bullet journal or other notebook for planning or are you "rings only?"
