πŸ’¬ Your note library is not an encyclopaedia. It’s a tool to facilitate thought.

Linking to previous posts, and the “Related Post” references that creates, is a basic yet effective bi-directional system of connections allowing me to follow threads of thought over time. When you also factor in clickable hashtags (which I really should use more) the blog becomes more of a database than ever.

I concur with this Colin. I too tried to maintain a wiki using Mike Caulfield’s Wikity theme. I have turned to the use of links built on webmentions between pieces. It feels a little bit messy, but I think it works. I often add the reply microformat of class="u-in-reply-to" if I want the posts to show as a comment. As I still use the classic editor, I use the Post Editor Buttons pluginclass=”u-like-of” to add this in as an option.
