  • Developing Book Ideas in Obsidian

    Today we’re going to look at fleshing out a big research project I’ve been toying with for a few years. We’ll look at some Obsidian plugins, how I search DEVONthink for more content I may have captured at different times and Shortform to evaluate resources that may fit with the project. Shortform is a sponsor […]

  • Obsidian Quick Add – Automate Note Entry

    Getting your notes into Obsidian can be a bit of a chore. I find adding a book to my notes as I’m reading a book particularly time consuming, and it breaks me out of the reading workflow. This is where Quick Add can help automate some of the process of adding specific types of notes. […]

    Recently Obsidian introduced a new cool core plugin that will save you some key strokes when you need to activate commands in it’s interface. Today we’re going to talk about the /slash command plugin.

  • Obsidian Longform – A Scrivener Replacement?

    For a long time I loved Scrivener, but the development is so slow it may as well not happen. It also has had 10 years to really support iPad’s as primary writing tools and it’s done a terrible job. You’re almost missing more features on an iPad than you get. You certainly can’t produce a […]

I regularly need to open up my writing workspace which has a Kanban board and hides all the sidebars. One of the other default workspaces I have is for […]

  • Obsidian Papercut Plugin

    I was recently asked which tools I’d recommend for someone getting started with taking notes in a Zettelkasten style system and contrary to what many people would believe I said start with a notecard because it enforces a character limit on you. When you get started it’s far to easy to jumble a bunch of […]

  • Craft 1.7 Gets Tables

    With Craft 1.7 users now have the long requested feature to have tables. Overall the tables are a very understandable user interface that allows almost everything that Craft has in it to be used inside a cell. Combining tables and pages you could even build out a Kanban flow that follows the traditional horizontal layout […]

  • Making Connections with Readwise and Obsidian

    One question I’ve been asked a few times is when does building a Zettelkasten System pay off? No, it’s not going to do much for you in the way of new connections you didn’t know were around when you only have a few notes. It’s going to take time to build up notes and ideas, […]
