      Reading, thinking and writing are heavily interlinked that one cannot exist without the other. Writing and learning in public ensures that "a mind garden is not a mind backyard." - Do something with those ideas! One way is the mind garden.

      How do we cultivate the information we spend time carefully learning, to ensure that this doesn't go to waste, after finding another niche topic? Scribbles in another journal, that is hardly legible?

      Well- it is by starting a mind garden and making it easily accessible to yourself and others. There's the idea of "Working in Public" which Nadia Eghbal has written extensively on in her latest book... and how this can actually help you long-term in your career. Which this can then enable you to truly find individuals who are interested in your 'niche' work and if you're lucky enough will even pay you for it.

      Ultimately, the goal is to make sure all the information you consume (your input) can lead to increased productivity and creativity (your output) instead of festering and getting forgotten in your mind backyard. If you end up creating your own digital garden or just an analog version of your mind garden, please let me know.
