Part 1: Accountability question
Listener E wrote in asking about a place for planning accountability. I love this idea, but wonder about what the best platform would be! You can imagine I am not excited about starting a BLP Facebook group for this purpose, but maybe some other format (WhatsApp thread or ???).
Nothing would make me happier than BLP listeners swapping goals lists back and forth and sharing organizing strategies along the way, so it’s something to think about. Ideas welcome!
Part 2: Inamio Review
I mentioned this before on this site, and received some interesting commentary on the legality of a planner ‘dupe’! Here’s the summary of a previous case between EC + a very similar line from Michaels, sent to me by lawyer/listener Nicole!
This planner is extremely affordable ($17-18 on amazon) and highly functional — as long as you don’t mind a small grid (the tiniest bit smaller than Hobonichi – which is already small!). The bulk of this planner is made up of weekly pages almost identical to that found in the Hobonichi cousin, except on thicker paper. I found it very gel pen/mildliner friendly. The paper IS a mild cream color though – not bright white.
Here’s my sample layout (smaller size):
The larger size (8.5″ x 11″) has larger gridlines but is quite a behemoth. It would work for a planner that stays on one’s desk but would not be welcome in my work bag.
Please keep the BLP questions coming! A reminder you can always send me an audio clip by using the Speakpipe app below. I promise it’s quite easy 🙂
