Welcome to part four of a four-part series where I share with you how I use Obsidian as a creative.

It’s an extensive look at how my Obsidian vault is set up and how I use it to store my thoughts, learnings, and ideas.

Today we’re going to talk about the following directories: Resources, Content Creation, Topics, Sources, Attachments, Daily Notes, Templates.


The Resources directory is where I store other useful things like code snippets, various lists, and guides.

This directory contains the following sub-directories:

  • 01-code-snippets
  • 02-guides
  • 03-lists


If I come across useful code snippets I make sure to put them in this directory for later use.

This includes things I want to try for myself or code snippets that might be useful for work to achieve a specific effect.

There’s no real template for these files, I simply copy and paste the code snippet into a dedicated note.


The label I use for these types of notes is: #resource/codesnippet.
