Hi! I'm Eleanor Konik – a history nerd & fantasy author who enjoys putting software through its paces.
I try to keep up with all the tools, plugins, guides, events, & discussions relevant to Obsidian's corner of the personal knowledge management community, as well as share some insight into my own nerdy deep dives into ancient history & weird animal biology... and more importantly the methods that help me stay sane and happy during the process.
Folks who sign up to financially support my efforts & behind-the-scenes logistical work also get access to exclusive essays about knowledge management, optimization, & efficiency — and how I use my notes to help me tell stories that illuminate what I've learned.
Otherwise, sign up for the free email newsletter or add me to your favorite RSS Reader; either way, you can decide which content you want to get. Use tag RSS feeds (here's the one for the Obsidian Roundup) or change your account settings to request the Roundup, my research overviews, and/or the bonus essays about productivity and culture.
Choose your own adventure...
Thoughts on productivity
An evaluation of the viability of using Obsidian for long form content as opposed to tools like MS Word, Google Docs, & Scrivener.
On the importance of knowing when to sit down and dive deep into your notes... so you don't get overwhelmed always keeping them neat.
Old, simple tools are often still useful, especially when paired with a practice of frequent check-ins with your goals and mental state.
