What is a digital garden?

Making my digital garden

I've created a loose structure that strings the pages of my digital garden together.

I create basic pages that I can add whatever tags I want to.

I then have tag collections that contain a list of any pages that contain the tags in the collection.

The root document is an index of documents that I manually edit.

I wanted the freedom to build any particular page how I like without an opinionated content management system forcing me into a box. The best option was to use flat files that contain a mix of markup and html content.

From the beginning of my web development career, I handcoded web pages, so it is very natural for me to just add html tags if and when I need them.

Sometimes I just want to type paragraphs of text without the labourious task of wrapping them in <p> tags.
