My Setup

Here's what I use. If you buy or subscribe through the links below, you help to motivate me to work more.

I keep my notes and content in three places:

I write almost everything in MultiMarkdown, including emails. You can see how I keep track of notes in my Macworld article "How I organize everything with plain-text notes"

This site:

My Hardware Setup

I use a Retina Macbook Pro with a 27" Thunderbolt Display and a Logitech Thunderbolt Dock.

My Desk

I backup to a Synology NAS (Review)

I use Backblaze because it is fast and doesn't kill my CPU.

I use a Seagate Backup Plus 3TB USB 3.0 drive for Time Machine

My secondary photo backup is on a WD My Book Studio 3TB FireWire 800 Drive

I enjoy my Hardon Kardon Soundsticks III (Review)

Writing this site:

Most posts are written in a combination of nvALT, MultiMarkdown Composer and Sublime Text. I ocassionally use TextDrop for writing when I am away from my Mac.

I have a Hazel rule that monitors my "notes" folder on Dropbox. When a new "@post" tag is added, the file is uploaded to my Pelican server. You can read more about it in this article.

When I work from an iOS device, I connect with FTPS through FTPOnTheGo Pro and iSSH

When I write on my iPad, I always use Editorial. You can read my full review here.
