I love Notion because of its related databases. As a discovery writer, I type a lot of words, but I have to check back in to make sure they’re getting the point across.
Finding the right set of tech is a mission for every entrepreneur. I use Notion to keep my blogs on track and improving over time. I write my blogs directly in the native setting most days and then follow up for clarity using Notion as my checklist. Notion has a lot more features than I use. I tend to keep mine very utilitarian and not very aesthetically pleasing.
Notion is an infinitely expandable and customizable dashboard.
If you’re familiar with WordPress, Notion feels similar at first, but it’s much more than that.
Notion uses slash commands like WordPress and Workfly. You can easily pull up many options like adding headings, databases, pages, and boards.
Databases are what I’m all in on as far as Notion goes. My dashboards are pretty lame, but database are tracking all of my things. And they’re relatable! Which feels kinda like magic.
Each database you create in Notion can have properties that relate to different databases.
For example, I keep a database of all my published blogs. I have multiple brands that I write for, but with notion, I can keep them listed both together and in a different view, separately.
So with blogging, I have a basic template I’m following and a list of elements I’m looking to include.
I can sort my blogs by brand or date and check on them one by one within any category I want. For instance, I can prioritize all my blogs about blogging first and make sure they’re all perfeto before i launch my blogging course!
You can make tons of Pages in Notion and organize them by dashboard. They are all availalale at your fingertips with slash commands.
Kanban-style boards are available to use anywhere you want in Notion. You can even create something as a database table and view it later or somewhere else as a Kanban board.
Very useful if you’re into the look of cards for organizing.
Notion is an amazing tool. It is hard to keep track of 150 blogs and update them all fairly regularly. But Notion makes it manageable.
