“A blog is always good enough” - lovely

I’ve recently wondered whether I could just dispense with the coffee stuff and share the whole collection in some useful way. And I’ve been wondering how to get it all together. I tried Scrivener, so it could be a book and Roam, so it could be networked and modern and Obsidian, so it could look like a spaceship. But none of them seemed to stick.

I even tried building webpages festooned with links and tags like I was building Xanadu, but I’ve read about that.

So I gave up.

And then, the other day I found myself saying to someone “Just do it as a blog, it’s never exactly what you want, but it’s always good enough.” And that reminded me of these lines from How to Change by Katy Milkman.

In psychology, there’s something called the “saying-is-believing effect.” Thanks to cognitive dissonance, after you say something to someone else, you’re more likely to believe it yourself.

So I’m going to saying-is-believing myself and just stick stuff on here, collect it all together and add thoughts it I have them. And then we’ll sort it all out later. A blog is always good enough.
