100 Days Of Discovery

Day 41 of the #100DaysToOffload Series:

Forty-one days ago, I started the #100DaysToOffload challenge. Kev made the challenge, and I had serious doubts I was going to complete it. I’m not one hundred percent confident now, and I’m forty-one days in. There has been one thing about it that I didn’t expect.

I’ve put up a number of posts regarding the software I use on my computer. Terminals, write.as, Roblox, Mycroft, etc. The conversation on those posts has always been great despite the fact I don’t have comments on my blog.

The thing I didn’t expect (and maybe should have) was the number of suggestions I’ve gotten to accomplish tasks I’m already doing in a less good way.

Joplin is one that I’ve really liked, and it was something that was introduced to me as a result of this blog.

Today I read a blog by Robert Winter in which I actually make a cameo appearance. In the “What’s on my plank” portion, he mentions an app called Zotero. I was interested, and I’m looking into using it.

There seems to be a lot of crossover in what I use Joplin for and what I’d use Zotero for, but I think I can use both of them productively. I can’t say for certain, but Zotero just might cure my tab problem.

Looking for comments? There are no comments. It's not that I don't care what you think, it's just that I don't want to manage a comments section.

If you want to comment, there's a really good chance I at least mentioned this post on Fosstodon, and you can reply to me there. If you don't have a Mastodon account, I'd suggest giving it a try.

If you don't want to join Mastodon, and you still want to comment, feel free to use my contact information.

Also, don't feel obligated, but if you feel like buying me a ☕ cup of coffee ☕ I won't say no.
