Puppy Tracking in Notion

The theme for May 2021 is 'Tracking in Notion' and what better way to show what it's possible to track in Notion, than by showcasing my family database focusing on the girlies?!

Time for another #wanderthorughmynotion, and this week I’m doing something super exciting! I’m going to be showing you how I track everything to do with the dogs in Notion!

Can you believe that, my two favourite things, the girlies and Notion, together in a live stream!

I managed to stay under 2-hours this week, only just!

I’m blaming the fact that I have a new studio background, it kept me on point and I didn’t waffle! Ok, I waffled, but not as much as I would have done normally!

I’ve added the timestamps below, which should help you get to the bit that you want!
