How to take notes

I used to have unfinished blog posts everywhere because these small bits of information did not justify a full blog post. A blog post is too ambitious, framing it as notes is already a lot better.

Literature notes should be kept separate, Projects are what we write for others and Notes that can become stale should be blog posts,


It is important to think about what qualifies as a note and what is part of a bigger project. There is stuff I know about, stuff I want to learn about, and there are larger projects that are more research-y, like the Les notes du bac II or even part of the Chess openings stuff. I can do everything in org-roam thanks to org-babel but is it really a good thing? I am not sure yet.

And then you just have to publish them often.
