Welcome to the 105th edition
Another week, another newsletter! I hope that you all had a great one 🤩
This week I've discovered more of the Belgian folklore in the city of Binche. It's been a blast, and I can't wait to participate in the Carnival next month. As an introvert, I've never been the kind of person to go to parties, so it's an interesting new life experience for me.

Alright, let's gooooo 🚀
The lab 🧪
This week I've released version 1.7.0 of the Obsidian Starter Kit. In this version, I've taken inspiration from a set of templates shared on GitHub by "Ljavuras" and improved the navigability of the periodic notes. This is super useful and makes for a much better user experience.
I've reached 400+ sales of the kit, and sold 10 more copies of the PKM Library so far this month. Thanks to this, I've reached a new milestone on Gumroad:
I'm super happy with my progress so far 🎉
Now I need to launch new products real soon and further build my flywheels. The one I have so far with the PKM community on Slack and Reddit, the PKM Journal and my blog is quite effective.
On other news, I've decided to expand my newsletter experiments. Now, in addition of publishing my newsletter on Ghost, Medium and LinkedIn, I've decided to also cross-post it to Substack. I'm curious about the network effects I could benefit from. And whatever happens there, I'm sure it will help me reach more people and give them more options to explore my content.
