★ What is mdsilo about?
mdSilo helps you write with ease, confidence, and motivation. By connecting your ideas in different contexts and practicing the habit of private journaling, mdSilo empowers you to become a better thinker, writer, communicator and more.
★ It’s secure and private
Write without pressure or judgment, knowing that your thoughts are safe and secure with us. Whether you’re jotting down a quick idea, journaling about your day, or working on a creative project, we provide a safe and private space for you to express yourself. Here your writing is secure, stored in an encrypted form and will never be public.
★ The compound effect of knowledge base
The compound effect of knowledge is a function of linking and time. Linking knowledge (backlinks) to form a network helps writers generate new ideas when individual knowledge fragments are placed in the network and context. Additionally, accumulating one’s own knowledge base is like brewing wine, which also takes time. Therefore, we provide tools to help you network your thoughts and motivate your daily writing.
★ Do I need to pay for mdsilo service?
Yes, we provide a powerful writing tool and some features to help with your daily writing. We also provide encrypted storage to sync your writing so you can jot down any thought on any platform. It’s worth paying just $5.00 a month, but you can actually use it for free forever if you write every day. This is our pricing strategy to encourage people to practice the daily writing habit.
★ What is the pricing?
There are three modes:
- Hard mode:
Just like any other paid service, you must pay to use it. In hard mode, you will not be able to earn back any credit, starting from $5 each month;
- Challenge mode:
In challenge mode, you can earn back your credit if you write every day in a row. You can set any credit amount that motivates you when you start a new streak. However, if you break your streak, you will lose all of the credit that you set in that streak;
- Sponsor mode:
Sponsor mode is a new way to sponsor people. You can set a credit reward and a streak length for someone as Assignee. If the assignee writes every day in the streak, the assignee will receive the reward. This can be a great way to motivate others to write regularly, or to support a friend or kid to build a daily writing habit.

How can I get stared?Kickstart your writing journey with 15 free credits by connecting your account with Google or Github or Microsoft. Set up streaks, pledge daily writing commitments, and earn credits as rewards to fuel your motivation.
How to set up a streak?Set a streak by choosing a title that inspires you, a streak length(up to 30 days) that pushes you forward in the days ahead, and a credit amount that serves as your reward. Select from three motivating modes:
1, Hard Mode: The minimum credit is 5, and you cannot take it back. In other word, the credit will be deducted;
2, Challenge Mode: The minimum credit is 10, and you can earn it back if you write consistently. Set the credit amount that will motivate you most. If you break your promise, the credit is lost;
3, Sponsor Mode: The minimum credit is 100, and you need to assign a challenge recipient(just input the username to set `Assignee`). If the assignee maintains the streak, they receive the credit; otherwise, the credit is deducted from your account.
Once your credit reaches 0, you cannot set new streaks. Please replenish your credits to continue your writing journey.
