It will come as no surprise that I really like Obsidian. Those who have followed my work the last couple of years know that I absolutely adore this app. The more I use it, the more I love it.
But it’s not an easy app to get started with. In fact, when I downloaded and launched it for the first time, I immediately closed it and wrote it off as not for me. It took a couple of people showing me the ways that it could improve my workflows for it to really click for me.
I’ve seen other people struggle with the same thing when I introduce them to Obsidian for the first time. So, I’ve started a side project to help people who are struggling getting their feet under them in Obsidian gain some traction.
The project is called Daily Obsidian Tips, and I share what I’ve learned about Obsidian via an email sequence in short, digestible chunks. I try to cover a broad range of tips from beginner to advanced that I’ve found practical and demonstrate how they work. The goal is to deliver a single quick tip every day and show how it can be useful so that you can then go implement it without a huge time investment if it resonates.
If you’re interested, it’s available for free at dailyobsidiantips.com. There are currently 52 daily tips, and I plan to keep adding new tips over time (I currently have an outline for 50 more).
(For transparency, I’m an Apple nerd. So all of the tips are from a macOS or iOS perspective. Just so all you Windows user don’t feel duped.)
