I write notes in this gist as comments. My original goal was to have a workflow where I can't have an excuse to not write. No websites to manage, no codes to push, no styles to update. Just write. I found Github gist fitting and I don't have issues with writing markdown.
This gist contains "problem-based", technical notes. I encounter a problem, I "google" the solution, I document the solution. Hopefully, I can accumulate the learning and don't have to google again when I encounter the same problem.
Besides problem-based, I also write my "TIL" notes here. They are the new things I learnt that often gave me that "nice" feeling when I first found about it.
There are other things I write like electronics, observations, etc. which I put in different gists. If you want to check it, here's the "sitemap" of all my notes:

I can't really remember which
findargs I should use to search texts and I found that
rghas sensible defaults that just works. For example, here's how I search "TODO" text in a directory:
The nice thing about
rgis it automatically exclude patterns from
.gitignore(see docs) so the search result won't be cluttered. Also, it's very fast!
For macOS, installation is easy:
brew install ripgrep
