I’ve been using org-roam for organizing my notes for some time now and I’m very happy with it, because it helps me to give notes useful structure and find them with less effort.
I mostly see my notes as a sort of personal wiki. Perhaps this does not exploit the “Zettelkasten” idea to its full extent (I’m glad to hear suggestions). I tend to have nodes on specific topics where I developed some understanding (e.g. “Hyperfocal distance”) and then more generic ones (e.g. “Photography”).
Now, I find it useful to link to more general concepts from the specific ones. So far I’m doing the following: at the top of a node, I add a org description list with a single item that holds the relevant keywords. For example, the top of a typical note file will look like this:
:PROPERTIES: :ID: 20220821T223408.999966 :END: #+title: Hyperfocal distance - Categories :: [[id:20220825T125104.700838][Photography]]
I’m quite happy with this solution, but whenever I add a new note after some time, I have to remember how to exactly format the category list. It also feels like something that may deserve more explicit markup.
I wonder how others are handling this. Is there a better way in org-roam (or org) to represent category links?
