[LFR] Special - Hang out with me on Saturday to maximise your Roam output

Happy Thursday fellow Roamans,

I don’t often send out emails outside of the bi-monthly schedule but I wanted to see what you were up to this weekend.

Do you want to hang out this Saturday?

Jason Griffing and I will be doing a YouTube livestream Roam Sessions on Maximising Output in Roam.

We’ll be live at 2pm UTC, 10am ET. That’s 3pm here in the UK. (Check out when it is in your timezone)

I’ll be discussing and demonstrating my Roam writing workflows. I'll be pulling back the curtain and show you how I go about creating Letters from a Roaman and how I turn my notes into articles and essays.

Come along and say hi and bring your burning questions about writing in Roam. If you can’t make it, send me your question by replying to this email and I’ll try to answer them. You’ll be able to catch up with the replay later.

Hope to see you on Saturday

I write Letters from a Roaman, curating community news and resources primarily around Roam Research, though I also include other information applicable to other tools for thought and the area in general. I also share my thoughts on a wide variety of tools for thought topics.

By way of PSA, and to hopefully save my email inbox from further deluge, while I...

Happy Tuesday, friends, 18 months ago, I posited that the five fundamentals of Roam were: Using the Daily Note Pages Thinking in blocks Indentation Page references and tags Block references Since then, I’ve had what turned out to be a huge article sitting in my drafts which hasn’t yet seen the light of day. Over the next few LFR essay editions, I will discuss these fundamentals and explore them more thoroughly. You’ll have a solid foundation to build on when you have understood and mastered...

Happy Tuesday, friends, In honour of this being my fiftieth Letter, I thought I would break with my usual format and share 50 things about Roam Research. It’s a mix of lesser-known and secret features, tips, tricks and simply things that I like, but I’ll start with what I consider the 5 fundamentals of Roam that, once mastered, give you a solid foundation to build the rest upon. 1. The Daily Notes Page (DNP) Let’s start with the fundamentals that make Roam what it is. Used in conjunction with...
