I am setting up Emacs org mode to track how I use my money. This is a healthy habit, which I applied in the past with a little paper notebook. This needs to be as easy as that little notebook, or I will never use it.
I only want to see how I use my money. This can eventually become part of a budget, but all I want today is the ability to make quick money notes.
- My friend paid me back some money they borrowed
- One of the housemates chipped in for groceries
- I treated myself to coffee.
Stuff like that. Let’s see what I come up with.

Table of Contents 1 Introduction 2 Organize Directories 3 Front Matter 4 Configure HTML Export 5 Publishing A Post 6 Followup Introduction Much of what I've read about Org mode has focused on its utility as a task management tool. That's great. I wouldn't mind spending some time on that aspect. Mostly I've been focused on its usefulness for note-taking and writing.

I have been exploring GNU Emacs recently. As part of that exploration, I decided to use o-blog. Why? Well. I want to blog more. I want to use Emacs more. I got tired of my WordPress blog. o-blog sits on top of Org mode, which is the Killer App of Emacs for me. Org mode is amazing. o-blog is nifty, and relatively easy to get started with. I have fiddled with the o-blog templates to suit my tastes. I replaced browser-side Less CSS with a bit of Sass at build time. Eventually I’ll port the Wordpress posts to o-blog and maybe the old static pages to something involving org-mode.
