Why did you choose logseq?

Hey, I’m new here. The first thing I wanted to write about is why the loqseq community… prefers logseq. I know what identifies this tool, but in a deeper and more personal way why did you choose to rely on logseq as your tool of choice for everything you do (zettelkasten, Journaling, Database, etc)? Why is logseq superior for you in what you have chosen to use it for?

Well, as I’m just trying it out for my zettelkasten after a while with obsidian, I’d love to hear your opinions. :slight_smile:


Hi Limonada,

I used Obsidian for around six months before making the switch.For me it comes down to a couple of things: One, that links and tags are treated identically. I don’t have to wonder whether something I’ve treated as a link should be a tag and vice versa. Secondly, I create all of my content in the journal and pull topics together through links and tags. Logseq seems to offer a helpful but constrained path on how best to do things so I’m not overthinking how I should do things. I found Obsidian allowed analysis paralysis by offering too much choice of format and structure.


I take your last point, obsidian, while powerful, does not offer you the best.

I switched from Obsidian to Logseq because it’s open source.
