Who Invented the Bullet Journal?

Bullet Journal® (or BuJo® for short) was developed by  Ryder Carroll, a digital product designer living in Brooklyn, NY. Through many years of trial and error, the system has evolved into the ideas presented here. This website, in addition to serving as a thank you to our generous community, is a space where inspiration, organization, and general musings on mindfulness can live and grow with the support of our talented Bullet Journalists.
