Whether you’re new to bullet journaling or you’ve been doing it for a while, you probably hear words every now and then that make you go “???!?”
You’re not alone, I’ve come across quite a few like that so I figured I’d start a running bullet journal glossary to help my fellow bujo’ers!

spread: a layout in your bullet journal, i.e. daily spread, weekly spread, monthly spread
tracker: a spread where you track something, i.e. weight loss, habit tracker
ghosting: when you can see your pen or marker faintly through the page in your notebook

Moleskine: another popular type of notebook, similar to the leuchtturm
Filofax: a type of notebook, bound by rings instead of traditional stitched binding like the LT1917
