死宅独自 car camping & kayaking 初尝试

整体而言又懒又怂的我并不是一个 outdoorsy 的人。虽然喜欢林间水岸的清净,但是太讨厌每次收拾行李(进 and 出)、setup 帐篷、帮忙做饭(通常都会烧烤)、洗碗和其间带来的摩擦以至于我完全不认为之前的露营体验 worth it。

前两天去找瓜片去了一个她们学校的超值 overnight canoe trip(70 刀包两天一夜三顿吃的、帐篷等露营器材、canoe 器材等,而且是 guided),享受了我讨厌的部分大部分被包办,只需要享受野外和划船的露营体验,顿时兴致大起,立刻预约了回西雅图之后的营地,打算进行一次摒弃露营中所有我讨厌的部分的一个人吃泡面划船的 car camping。

我的包里有什么|2022 EDC & Travel Setup

作为一个没事基本不出门,不带电脑或者攀岩鞋的话出门绝对不带包的人,其实我没什么好 EDC 的。仔细检查了一下今年的 EDC,发现跟去年的也基本没有变化,那我就偷个懒把 2021 EDC 放在这。短途旅行的部分倒是增加了不少设备:

与去年的 EDC & travel setup 相比变化最大的是 Day Trip & Travel Setup(下图)。下图里除了运动鞋之外所有东西都是过去不到一年之内新买的。

这是现充过度没空写的 2、3 月 Patreon 二合一投票票选结果其中之一。欢迎金主们去四月的投票选出接下来的命题帮助我重新 get back on track:

How to setup RSS for notion blog using Zapier

RSS has became an almost obsolete concept that most of my friends nowadays never heard of, which is a shame. It’s simple, clean, accessible with correct setup, and most importantly, a highly productive system for information consumption.

Why do you need RSS

Compared to other information consumption form like feed from certain platforms (e.g. Instagram, Twitter) or newsletter, RSS (or atom) has a few clear advantages for consumers:

  1. No sponsored content inserted and pretending to normal content in your feed.
  2. You choose when to read rather getting newsletter pushed to a folder that you never get back to.
  3. No personal information is collected when subscribing. Like receiving broadcast, publisher has no way to trace receiver.
  4. No self-righteous algorithm telling you what order you should be reading your feed and making you miss the content you’re interested.
  5. User friendly interface provided by Modern RSS clients like Inoreader or Feedly making subscribe and manage feed really easy.

As a content creator, making your site available through RSS means that:

  1. More users will know when you have new content, no matter what platforms they usually use. Indie blogs are hard to keep track of without a universal feed, you can’t expect your readers to bookmark your website among tons of other blogs they’re interested in and check all of them everyday.
  2. Less readers miss your content because they happen to not scrolling the social platform you’re on the exactly the moment you post.
  3. Better performance on reader side and less stress on your server. RSS consuming platforms pull your content once and store on their platform, instead of your server feeding each individual visitor.

While popular blog/news website still generate RSS feed and are easy to subscribe, some of the content creators in this new era choose to publish their blog on non-conventional platform, like notion.

Notion blog is easy to setup and much more flexible than some simple article posting platform like telegra.ph or medium. Thanks to notion’s database system, content creators can customize their page with various views, filters and templates. Also it’s free for personal use. The only downside is, it doesn’t come with RSS feed.

Fortunately, automation workflow platform like Zapier provides an easy and free (for now) solution so that your notion blog (or frankly, any notion database) can generate RSS feed.
