I don’t follow, I’m sorry.
These are pages with my notes about these articles.
So the main article text is not on the page except for citations I want to keep. All citations don’t contain links.
All notes I make do contain links.
The page is about a certain subject, so it is linked to said subject.
So here’s basically what happens. I have read the article “Introduction to the Zettelkasten Method” (article 1). I copied some highlights into Logseq and made some additional notes for myself. I gave the page subject:: Zettelkasten.
Later I read the article “Folgezettel is More than Mechanism” (article 2). I did the same for this article, highlights, notes and subject:: Zettelkasten.
Later I was reviewing (for one reason or another) my notes on article 1 and it made me think of what I read in article 2.
This let me to write the note on the page of article 1. “There is more to it than that, see [[Folgezettel is More than Mechanism]]” In response to the citation about the unique id used in Zettelkasten.
This leads to connections between both articles and each to subject Zettelkasten.
What in your opinion should it look like instead?
Ah yes that makes sense.
Some advanced modeling though as compared to where I am currently.
I would say for me as a first step would be to seperate my notes from the article’s page.
If I need the articles text I can reference it. (Block reference, which would not show in the graph)
I think the hardest part would be to consider the “correct” concept.
I interpret this, that in the same logic a concept also does not need to be final.
What seems like an appropriate concept today may be broken up later.
This would help me avoid never starting at all.
I have noticed in the past I would like a reference to where my notes came from.
In the context of this comment of yours I feel my earlier idea of using block references (or embeds) might be an appropriate way.
It would not create links, and in that way the article is hidden. It would still be possible to go from my note to the underlining source.
I can add to the article page an exclude from graph property.
I feel that highlights belong on the article page, hidden and available at the same time. The expansion on those highlights could then live on the page of the appropriate concept.
That’s something I can definitely work with. And also that’ll take some work
(As you may have noticed, I’m just thinking out loud here to process what you’re saying)
I have been enjoying this process thoroughly. Seeing things improve, both my thoughts and understanding as well as my graph structure.
So thank you very much for taking the time to enlighten me. This has been so much more helpful than everything I’ve read as we were able to discuss some specific things.
I brought back the game cluster (at the bottom), but it is no longer connected to hobby. Opting to split it to type:: game and hobby gaming. That made sense to me keeps the graph more clear too.
There a lot of mini-graphs and floating pages. But that is a much better starting point than the tangled mess from the beginning.
(and yes I had to drag things around a lot to get it to look this nice :P)
I wanted to come back and give another update
I’ve been working on more deliberate connections and working on connecting things without them.
One thing I learned that it is best to link a page to the most specific related page as possible. As a good example, I would link near everything to “health”.
So you have this really big star with all these branches. But it is totally unhelpful.
So here’s my graph now. The red area is all connected. The white circle is my health page
I’ve been going through my references and trying to split the notes and quotes. Moving the notes to appropriate places.
I’m discovering notes with ideas about how I did things, how I might do things etc. These notes are often obsolete now due to new insights. Instead of having been useful notes, they got lost.
Doing this made me realize/solidified the above point a lot better.
