A text playlist[1] is a list of articles, books, or essays that you have enjoyed reading and would like to read again in the future. Similar to your favorite music, these texts also resonate with you.

It doesn't matter if you want to re-read them because of their writing style, their content or out of nostalgia. They serve as reminders of important values that you want to implement in your life.

If you should find yourself in the situation of publishing a personal website, you already have a list of curated online articles. This makes it easier to get started with a website, newsletter, or referral to friends.

I personally recommend saving the articles in a document on your own computer. Especially website articles can easily get lost. The URL may no longer be valid or the website could be deleted.

Because of this, I copied all articles and saved them locally. This way nothing can get lost. Of course you should not violate any copyright regulations and should not publish the articles yourself!

Otherwise, there are no limits and you can save all kinds of articles if you want to read them again later. Many people perceive articles as not being as high quality as books. This may be true in many cases, but there are still many high-quality articles on the Internet that are worth reading.

The only thing to do is to find them and save them!

The text playlist also encourages you to look for new interesting articles and stay curious. You automatically use your attention better.

I am always open for recommendations! A treasure trove of articles is definitely Derek Sivers' website, James Clear's website, and Seth Godin's website.

If you know of other inspiring articles, please feel free to send them to me! I am happy about every recommendation and I am curious which jewels you find in the depths of the Internet!
