:wave: everyone, I've been thinking about where to put non-technical blog posts and what to call them since, so far, I have
tutorial/ folders already.
I think those cover most of the things I like writing about and I intend to share, but I also enjoy poetry, analyzing movies, political commentary and writing an essay here and there.
Following from that, I kept
commentary/ around for whenever I felt like sharing some of my non-technical writings, but I don't like those folders :smile:. They seem way too granular, more akin to tags than categories, both of which are contained in each file's metadata.
Tags, however, don't feel like a "pillar"/category of a Zettelkasten/ramblings/thoughts crate. They're empty at the moment and in
draft/, so it's the perfect chance to do some re-structuring and avoid the issues I faced when I ditched
blog/category and chose the current structure.
In case you're asking yourself why I didn't put everything in the same folder, as they reflect categories and each
.md file has category metadata already, it's because the drafts in
draft/ became unmanageable (+120). So, in an effort to give myself an easier way to navigate and edit, I decided
/folders were going to reflect the categories that existed. I'm aware it can be that after note #50 or something I have the same problem, and thus it wouldn't have made a difference whether notes were together with tutorials or not. I've decided to deal with that problem when it arises :)
I'd be very interested in hearing your thoughts! Would you keep
commentary/ or merge them into something else?
note/ are short and wouldn't feel right for longer ramblings. I am not a big fan of
writings/ as everything is a "writing",
prose/ also doesn't quite fit and so far the only one I've sort of liked is
reflection/ since essays, poems, and comments on happenings are the result of reflecting.
/rant over, I know, I'm overthinking it. Let those not guilty throw the first stone :)
 I've removed quite a bit of the irrelevant stuff but kept what I believe is relevant, but feel free to ask away in case something necessary is missing.
