The Joys of Micro Publishing

On one side you have the shitshow that is known as Twitter with its 280 char limit and weird thread logic, and the on the other side you have the stuffiness of posting full 10,000 word essays, Obsidian Publish is a great compromise. Why?

  1. You can write with a lacksadasical nature, much like the meme culture on Twitter
  2. You can go as hard as you want with images, code blocks, etc
  3. (most important imo) You work on private and public at the same time. Basically, it is literally two birds with one stone. The quality of your local vault goes up drastically, and you release something every day with very little added stress.
  4. Share projects as they're being built! Pog!
Once a day, after you’ve done your day’s work, go back to your documentation and find one little piece of your process that you can share. Where you are in your process will determine what that piece is. If you’re in the very early stages, share your influences and what’s inspiring you. If you’re in the middle of executing a project, write about your methods or share works in progress. If you’ve just completed a project, show the final product, share scraps from the cutting-room floor, or write about what you learned. If you have lots of projects out into the world, you can report on how they’re doing—you can tell stories about how people are interacting with your work. (Location 211)
