How evergreen notes evolve over time (and how to mix work and evergreen notes)

This animated graph (posted on Youtube) shows how a (young) vault of evergreen notes and work notes evolves.

It shows two things: first, how it starts as a mess before the organization evolves. (You may notice a couple times where the org scheme changes.) It also shows how I use tags to create a kind of “shadow” Map Of Content to link notes before I’m ready to create a real MOC and how MOCs emerge and evolve over time.

The last thing it shows is how my work notes live alongside my evergreen notes. There’s only a couple of flimsy rope bridges to cross the rift.

These are common questions beginners have, so I hope seeing how mine grew over time will help answer “how things will go” once you start.
