  • Obsidian /Slash Command Plugin

    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 […]

  • Obsidian Workspaces

    Workspaces allow you to save a configuration of your Obsidian panels and files. This is useful for when you have a configuration that you use regularly. 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 […]

  • 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, […]

  • Should You Use Obsidian for Task Management?

    I know I’ve said before that you shouldn’t use your PKM system as a task manager, but we’re still going to talk about using some of the task management tools available in Obsidian because they do feel like they make sense in my workflow lately. Specifically, is content to manage and someday maybe content I […]

  • How I Use Day Planner for Daily Notes in Obsidian

    When I got started in Obsidian I didn’t find daily notes all that useful, but that changed a number of months ago. I now use daily notes almost every day of the week to keep myself organized and to keep a time log of my day. This video will talk you through how I use […]

  • Sync Obsidian Settings

    As I said when I talked about how to sync your Obsidian files, you can also sync your settings if you use the Obsidian Sync service. To do this, purchase Obsidian sync then under your sync settings, turn on the sync of your system settings. You can even choose to sync your settings differently depending […]

  • Download Markdown Notes from Kindle

    Dr Brad Davis did an excellent video about how to use Readwise to get your Kindle notes into your Obsidian database. I don’t actually use my Kindle enough for reading to warrant an extra fee for Readwise regularly so I use his second free option in the form of Markdownload as a Chrome extension. Today […]

  • Obsidian Tagnotes

    One Anthony Baker asked me a question that summarizes questions many people have asked me. I notice you use Obsidian [[links]] instead of #tags or as tags, why? In today’s video we’ll talk about why I don’t use standard tags for my tags and why I think links are a better option. Two Broad Note […]
