I agree. For me managing notion is a job in itself. When I bought a year subscription I was very excited but I couldn't maintain it.
For now I use TickTick and still looking for a note app. I'll give Standard Notes a try.
I use Toggle to track my time.
Bookmarking is done by Pinboard, I've just started using this so don't have any tips.
Standard Notes is good, but not the best note taking app. The reason I use it because notes are encrypted. I don't have any sensitive information, but I believe in online privacy and try to support people/companies/etc. who fight for it.
