<aside> ✨ Welcome to Intro to Personalized Notion! We will begin by covering the fundamental concepts of Block, Page, Database, Slash Command, Share, and Template. We will cover few common ways that help you maximize Notion as a useful tool in life.


The Basics

Notion's Official Starter Kit


Every content inside Notion works as a block: texts, headers, images, databases, quotes, and other pages. The blocks could be placed parallel to each other. Like this:

This is a text block. The block on the right ➡️ is an image block.

The block below ⬇️ is a to-do list block:




<!DOCTYPE html>

<h2>What Can JavaScript Do?</h2>

<p id="demo">JavaScript can change HTML content.</p>

<button type="button" onclick='document.getElementById("demo").innerHTML = "Hello JavaScript!"'>Click Me!</button>



Pages are where you gather all the blocks and are Notion’s equivalent to files. For instance:

Page 1

Page 2


The database is like a spreadsheet. Every Entry is its own page. For example:


Database Example 1

Each column is a property. The property allows you to store different types of values inside the database. For Example:

Database Example 2

You can link to a database as an alias. You could do this or this (try different views):
