I use the daily notes feature in Obsidian. But I’ve also made 366 date notes, one for each day of the year. The reasoning for doing this is that lots of events are the same every year. So I needed a way to tag the general date (like March 12th) instead of March 12th in a specific year.
Now I have a folder called “dates” and 366 notes inside. From “01-01” to “12-31”. 366 because “02-29” is there too.
And I see that I use these way more than the daily notes. So I’m considering moving away from using daily notes, and instead just use the 366 date notes as daily notes.
Does that make sense?
Is there anyone doing this? I would love to hear experiences and learnings.
Things that typically go on the date note:
• birthdays of friends
• things that happened in history on this date
• links from articles and clippings. That way I’m reminded all the time: “Oh, a year ago I clipped this great article about electric cars” etc.
• my genealogy research “So, my great great grandfather got his first son on this date”
