New Project: Accessing my Org-roam notes everywhere

2022-01-18

Currently my information storage “strategy” is a disaster. I have four (at least I think so, maybe even more) places where I write down information: A single org file called notes.org which is synchronized across my devices (including mobile) using Syncthing. This contains 14 first-level Org headings and apparently 617 headings in total. A Org-roam directory which is also synchronized across all devices using Syncthing. Currently it contains 266 notes.

In my last post I wrote that it is currently quite cumbersome for me to start writing a new blog post. There are mainly two reasons for that. The first is opening the file.

So what’s left then to tell you, dear reader, is how this blog post is brought to you and thereby also include a few hints about what I will write during the next months!

100 Days To Offload

100DaysToOffload

Since I joined the Fosstodon community over one and a half years ago (boy, time really flies…) I constantly read posts with a hashtag #100DaysToOffload and wondered what the heck this is. Well, someday I read the description and just thought “what a nice idea!” (tl;dr: during a time span of a year, write 100 more or less useful blog posts). Though I never really thought about joining since I cannot imaging writing 100 blog posts in just one year (if you look at my blog you will see that I published five posts during the last two years, with that speed I would need 40 years to finish the #100DaysToOffload).
