The phrase "digital garden" is a metaphor for thinking about writing and creating that focuses less on the resulting "showpiece" and more on the process, care, and craft it takes to get there.
A digital garden is...
- 👎 Chronologically sorted posts
- 👎 Paginated posts
- 👎 Content marketing
- 👎 Perfection
and more about:
- 👍 Non-performative blogging
- 👍 Personal curation
- 👍 Shipping
What belongs in a digital garden?
- ✅ Blog
- ✅ Wiki
- ✅ Notes
- ✅ Ideas
- ✅ Snippets
- ✅ Resources
- ✅ Thoughts
- ✅ Collections
- ✅ Anything you find interesting or useful!
Be creative! What else could/should be included? I'd love to hear your ideas!

I hope this inspires you to start digital gardening 🌱
