What I’m thinking about

I have become increasingly interested in making my private notes public. The term digital garden has been coined to describe this idea.

I like Chris Biscardi’s definition:

A Digital Garden is lowercase b blogging. It’s writing without worrying about what people will think. It’s writing in small, unfinished pieces and building them up to larger more edited pieces, in public. This is in contrast to big B blogging, which can be thought of as writing a 6k+ word thinkpiece or the authoritative work on topic X without shipping any smaller pieces.

This idea has been inspired by Tom Critchlow, Andy Matuschak and Anne-Laure Le Cunff.

I’m publishing smaller articles and then cross-linking them. I’m publishing stuff I wouldn’t normally consider publishable.

This page was inspired by Dave Redfern. If you have own site, you should make one too.
