After reading A Brief History & Ethos of the Digital Garden I was inspired by Maggies Six Patterns of Gardening especially number three: imperfection and learning in public.
I have always considered PhotoGabble to be a place where I publish my musings and various tinkering for the world to purview if it wants, that lends it to be more of a Digital Garden than blog.
A first step in migrating from a Blog structure to more of a cultivated garden is indicating how "done" content is.
I quite like Maggie's horticultural approach and so will be borrowing her three metaphors:
- 👩🌾 Stubs placeholders for content coming "soon"
- 🌱 Seedlings for very rough and early ideas
- 🌿 Budding for work I've cleaned up and clarified
- 🌳 Evergreen for work that is reasonably complete
