Matt Webb: A pre-history of weeknotes, plus why I write them and perhaps why you should too (Week 16) There’s a format to these posts. I report and reflect. The format is called weeknotes.

There’s a decent-sized community of people who keep weeknotes. Check out Web of Weeknotes which brings together a couple dozen adherents.

I have a few friends whose weeknotes I always look forward to reading

Although it wasn’t in my head at the time, I have also always been a fanatic of lab books (Programmer's Notebook) in which you write, each day, what you’ve been up to in the laboratory, recording experiment results, musings, and anything else that occurs relevant or ir–. To prevent retrospective editing, you sign off the pages at the end of each day.

I also use private weeknotes

For the past couple summers I’ve run teams on innovation projects in the Android team at Google. They got weeknotes

The per-project weeknotes are a little more structured, sure, but what I like about them is they’re not simply a reporting tool

This article, The why of weeknotes, captures the motivations well:

jukesie: The why of weeknotes. Early in 2010 I was flailing a bit in my return to Jisc and a side effect was I was struggling with my blogging. I decided to start personal weeknotes.

Buster Benson's notes: This is a series of weekly answers to the question “This week will be good if…” My version of it here is a simple weekly summary of my time spent in my creative rickshaw (aka independent creative projects with the goal of becoming financially sustainable). The data about “how the previous week went” and “how this week began” comes from taking Gyroscope’s “Mood Score” test as I write this each week.

Weeknotes: personal, public logs in the tradition of early blogging: small community of people who maintain weeknotes, many of them early blogging pioneers, who started out in 2009 when Bryan Boyer started publishing his weekly summaries.
