I am trying to find my perfect writing tool.
I need it to be in block format, similar to the Gutenberg editor in WordPress. I love how blocks work. They are flexible and best of all, they organised my thoughts visually.
I need a way to tag by paragraph and by highlights, in addition to by article. This is inspired by Ben Thompson’s newsletters, where he seemed to be able to constantly refereed back to his previous writings. I want to be able to quickly search and see the results in context and categories, instead of just words.
I want to be able to use these tags to discover new connections.
A nice to have will be a publishing function where it would turn whatever I write into social media friendly formats. For example, I can format and post an article for Twitter in threads, or in LinkedIn in a heavily paragraphed layout.
The closest I have found on the internet are solutions designed for qualitative research. They have the tagging and search functionalities, but are crappy for writing. I know I am greedy to want to have everything in one app. But hey, I can actually afford building one for myself. Why not?
