Very Nice Work ! You can create your second brain on Notion instead . It will be easier .

Don't you need to pay for Notion past a certain point though?

I'm not against paid software at all, but I feel like for something such as a second brain or personal knowledge base which will grow exponentially over time, any service which holds your notes hostage by requiring payment is off the table.

Well tbh I have been using it for a couple of years now. It didn't come to that point for me yet.

Yeah, I thought of that too.. but having an isolated space just for development purpose is better. Coz this way I don't get distracted by all my future todos and calendars that I've setup for myself on notion. Moreover, with MDX I can create my own components which can be used to show interactive demonstration of the topic I am writing notes about.

I love Obsidian. It's amazing because everything is just plain markdown, but there's so many useful features and plugins if you want more complex functionality.
