I'm a notion person, yet I'm wondering how roam is?
I'm using both atm for different things and it depends what you're using it for. Roam is interesting for connecting ideas, notion is better for proactive structuring of knowledge bases and for pretty formatting. Roam is quite performant and I'm finding Notion a bit slow.
As you can probably see from my daily tasks that I complete on WIP that I am a heavy ROAM user. Below you will see how my mind map on there looks like nowadays. Picture 1.
I think that the choice between Notion and Roam should not be influenced by anyone else. If you enjoy using someone else's templates and you enjoy simply completing the template then it is good as well.
For my use case of Roam, which is habit tracking, journaling, making plans, reviews, Having Kanban and TO-DOs, planning videos and working with the team of 500 people, ROAM is a perfect solution.
It just feels nice to always know that everything, and I mean EVERYTHING is interlinked. Sometimes I end up writing their things because I know that it will forever be stored in it and I can search for it at any point in time.
What was I thinking on the October the 13th? Well, let's see. Picture 2.
Also being able to reference people and events and just general terms is a game-changer in sorting your information.
oh yes, adding on top of @david point, ROAM is way faster with instant response time while Notion feels sluggish after using ROAM.
