For example this image is 344KB: https://images.squarespace-cdn.com/content/v1/5f0dbd41d1d25c...
Using a basic online JPG->SVG converter ( https://tracesvg.com/uploads/1631702350_latest_part_1B_1.jpg... ) it goes to around 90KB (~4x smaller) and it should be a lot smaller with some basic curve optimizations.
While not wanting to sound too negative in this response, I didn’t even consider the file size, but rather the creative possibilities that opens up when one successfully breaks with an otherwise common format and merges it with a new one.
p.s. I've submitted it to SaaSHub as well https://www.saashub.com/paper-website
My best approach was simply writing down bullet points of stuff which I found noticeable.
Initially, I used https://750words.com/ which helped to create a routine. But now I'm using obsidian daily notes with a word counter plugin.
At the end of the day I extract any good reference sections into separate notes.
This system has made my days much more conscious and productive.
I tried this for a while. It works in the beginning, but it wasn't long before I tired of coming up with answers to the same question every day.
The real question I have: Which fountain pen is in the picture?
I've tried two Jinhao models, but I don't think I've tried the 250. I liked them at first, but the inconsistent quality issues annoyed me. I still use one of the Jinhao's, but I swapped the nib.
This is a rewarding one to look back on
I can't agree with this more. As someone who feels like their mind moves at one hundred million miles per hour, writing slows me down to a walking pace with my thoughts.
I already write what I'm grateful for on a daily basis but I don't ask myself what I'm worried about or what I would want to accomplish. I think asking these questions are important for self awareness and I will try adding them to morning routine.
I tried doing it in the morning but found that I just didn't have a very strong morning habit/protected time in the morning. Instead I do it at night and write what happened the day prior, that way I can write it whenever I feel like without missing out on anything, and it gives me some practice simply using my memory.
However, sometimes I will record a voice message instead, while running to the office. Or a small video. Or take a picture. The value of a diary for me is to make clear the changes over time, and a video or audio is just as good as text. 5525 entries and 2200 days so far.
