My approach to saving links about dev and design is all over the place. I have some saved in my RSS reader of choice (Feedly), I have a collection of links in Notion and another older collection in Pinboard. I also have a couple of collections in Standard Notes.

One morning as I scanned my various Monday morning newsletters looking for articles I wanted to read later, I had my usual thought of "I wonder if I would use Pinboard more if it was responsive?". Followed quickly by "I'll just start throwing links in Airtable and then figure out what to do with them". Followed quickly by mocking up a little prototype using Vue.

A week later I had completed this project and am happy to report that it's been useful and easy to maintain. In fact a couple of things I saved were helpful in building out this site!

I put together an extensive write up at Notion that includes a problem statement, use cases, detailed information about implementation and design as well as an overview of how I administer the site. At some point I might move it over here.
