🌱 A digital garden

A digital garden is a place to plant the seeds for future ambitious works. It was seeded with many [[🌱 Evergreen notes]] and linked to each other.

Those evergreens from this digital garden are the source for me to create a longer essay/article for my blog.

Here are some interesting terms for a digital garden:

Seeds: = 🌱 Fleeting notes and 🌱 Literature notes. Seeding your garden with quality content by taking smart personal notes when you find things that resonate with you from books, articles, movies,…

Seedlings: = 🌱 Evergreen notes. A short structured note based on your seeds, in your own words.

Fruits: The work you produce: essays, articles, podcasts, books, videos,…

Notes on the digital garden are longer than a tweet but shorter than a blog post. It’s a sweet spot: short enough so we can do it in 30 minutes but long enough to explain a concept.

A digital garden is a second brain to turn seeds of information into original works.

β€œSo plant your own gardens and decorate your own soul, instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.”
β€” Jorge Luis Borges
