Making part of your notes public brings clarity to the note taking process

Up: § My digital garden

By making a portion of your notes publicly viewable, you can actually enhance your write taking process.

The reason is, that you will choose that portion of notes which you feel are most complete and ready to be presented to others.

And, that is a very powerful and clear separator of the notes, a very clear decision model to work with.

Without making a portion of your notes public, it can be hard to say “is this complete?”, whereas when you have that public visibility it suddenly becomes very clear to say “yes, this is ready for others to read”.

This can propel you towards finishing, which is one of the most important parts of writing.
