About the Gardener

If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them. ~ Henry David Thoreau

I call myself an idealist, neophile, multipotentialite, and practicer.

I have always wanted to start a blog, but after many attempts, found that I couldn’t commit to writing regular posts and didn’t want to be held back by the “blog” form (what I consider to be a strict format of linear, fully written posts that are mostly unchanged after publishing).

A Digital Garden allows me to create interconnected pages and notes that are neither permanent nor need to be viewed chronologically.

Besides, it’s fun to think of myself as a gardener, cultivating and tending to my internet ‘garden’, with sprawling plots of various plant-notes.

I have a semi-green thumb in real life, so let’s hope that it transfers here! 🌱👍


About the Garden

Repository

The files can be found on Github source, for anyone curious.

Publishing

I use Neuron to publish files to the web.

Hosting

Github Pages

File back-up

OneNote

Workflow

Writing and editing

I use Obsidian to write and edit files.

Publishing

Then I open up the Github Desktop Client to push/pull any changes to the repository.

Alternatively, I can directly edit files on the Github repository, or use Cerveau, the web-interface for Neuron.
