9 ways to capture content into Obsidian
I list all the ways I get content into Obsidian to create ideas.
1. Website - I have used the ReadIt Later Plugin to create a note from website links. It allows you to set up a template and the location where you want the note to save.
2. eBooks - Highlights from kindle can be loaded into Obsidian using @readwise Readwise can support many services and again allows me to import my highlights into a note along with details of the books.
3. Audiobooks - I have seen other services that will provide an automated service, such as Snipd, but I have opted to continue to do it manually.
4. Podcasts - I am currently using OvercastFM to clip and share a link which I manually copy into a note template. I have seen other services that will provide an automated service, such as Snipd, but I have opted to continue to do it manually.
5. Twitter Thread -I enjoy reading Twitter Threads, and if I find one, I use the Tweet to Markdown plugin. I can copy the last thread link, and the plugin will download the other tweets and paste it into a note template.
6. Newsletter highlights - I have used Inoreader to manage my newsletters. I have been using readwise to get the highlights I make in Inoreader, and Readwise Plugin will create a Note with those highlights.
7. YouTube - I have used the ReadIt Later Plugin to create a note from YouTube links. This generates a note with a template I have chosen. The YouTube video is embedded into the note, so I can take notes while watching it.
8. Audio notes - I have been using Apple's voice-to-text features to create an iOS Shortcut to generate a note in my Obsidian Inbox.
9. Physical Books and documents - I have been using Apple photos to scan text and an iOS Shortcut to generate a note in my Obsidian Inbox.
