Definition Of A Digital Garden

📕
A digital garden is a public website where you publish and link the notes from your learning. It is more organized and edited than private notes and less formal than a blog.

"A garden is a collection of evolving ideas that aren't strictly organised by their publication date. They're inherently exploratory – notes are linked through contextual associations. They aren't refined or complete - notes are published as half-finished thoughts that will grow and evolve over time. They're less rigid, less performative, and less perfect than the personal websites we're used to seeing." —Maggie Appleton
"It's a different way of thinking about our online behaviour around information - one that accumulates personal knowledge over time in an explorable space." —Maggie Appleton
"The phrase "digital garden" is a metaphor for thinking about writing and creating that focuses less on the resulting "showpiece" and more on the process, care, and craft it takes to get there." —Joel Hooks
