Thoughts on using Foam + VS Code to build a second brain

Wanted to share my experience trying a new notetaking setup. In short, I was tired of all the anxiety around organizing everything I write down. Finding the perfect folder / page / service / tag for a note was enough of a blocker to avoid writing anything at all!

Still working out the kinks, but the Foam project for VS Code really ramped up my notetaking habits. It's also easily host-able as a Jekyll or 11ty site, if you want to learn in public (TM) 😁

Wrote a longer-form post over here. Curious what solutions work for y'all!
