I like the idea of writing with the garage door open. I write notes to help myself a year from now. But if I publish an obscure thing that helps someone do something cool, I wouldn’t complain.
Our natural fear of being judged leads most people to build, learn, and think privately. But seeking validation should not be the goal of learning in public.
~ Anne-Laure Le Cunff
My sites are hosted in my Homelab, these notes are written in Dendron. I publish the site using Hugo.
Plain text is wonderful. It allows me to easily find ideas, references, links, personals notes, tasks, thoughts and everything else I want to keep handy. Even short jots and thoughts deserve their space.
Being useful for me is the primary use case for this space on the internet. It’s not that I don’t care about you, but this is for me. It’s here so I can record what I think and know and preserve it in time and space.
It’s my garden, but I’m happy for you to hang around and eat tomatos with me.
