Obsidian, Ulysses, either/or? both/and?

… i am sitting here contemplating the use of Obsidian as the primary journaling and note taking app, cutting and pasting over to Ulysses when i want to publish something… the reason to do this is to make use of Obsidian’s ability to interconnect things and display a map of those connections… this in turn will make it easier to see relationships in the stream and develop them into… what?… more full blown and refined writing about the relationship nodes… a journaling process meant to surface connections and relationships that are easy to follow… i do this in Ulysses through tagging… the question becomes, is it worth the extra steps to cut and paste into Ulysses for publication to Micro.blog… and, is this part of a shift away from the journal to blog direct posting and towards more considered and complete articles or posts?… what would be the value of this?… fewer posts?… more interest?… and there it is, a shift being contemplated partly because i want to see the structure of my meandering and partly because i want to arrive at content production that will be more interesting to others…

… and then i discover how hard it is to insert a link to a web page… it can be done with proper syntax but it is not an intuitive or easy process…

… i really want to find a use for Obsidian, but it just seems unnecessary complication for the thinking, reading and writing that i do and the way that i do it…

… sticking with Ulysses for everything for now…
