Facts in the Zettelkasten
Hey! So I recently started my own Zettelkasten. But all the material you find on it, either on this site or others, always talks about it as a way of storing ideas and talks about it mostly in the abstract. This left me with one big question: How do you handle mere facts inside a your Zettelkasten?
Like dates, for example. Because I'd like to use the Zettelkasten as my only repo for any kind of knowledge I obtain, not just ideas (those may come later.) No one ever seems to talk about the different kinds of content that a Zettel could contain and how to handle them and I would love some concrete examples for this. And I realize that everyone has their own method and that these things evolve over time, but there is already so much structure to this that even examples of different ways of handling this, not just "the one right way", could get me out of my fear of really starting right now.
A second question I still kind of have is regarding scope of cards. This may stem from the fact that I'm doing it digitally, but I would love to see an example for how someone structured their Zettel on the "Zettelkasten" concept somewhere. Because as many others probably, I chose that as the topic of my first Zettel and find it hard to break into multiple Zettel.
Any concrete examples would be greatly appreciated.
P.S. Don't take this as a criticism of the amazing work you people are doing on this site! It's of great value and I'm super thankful that you took the time of producing all of this writing to get me started.
