#atozchallenge: Evernote

06 Apr

E 2016

Another tool I use is Evernote. Like dropbox I started using this one recently as well. Before using either one of them I didn’t back up files like I should have and paid the consequences of not doing so. I learned my lesson about that and now everything is sent to at least three different backup locations I use. I use Evernote mainly to keep track of ideas, notes, and research I find when I’m online. I definitely like to be organized and be able to find things I’ve looked at and were interested in without having to do a search on the topic again. I will admit one thing about myself and that’s I thought I was organized because I had post-it notes and stacks of folders sitting everywhere but Evernote makes it a lot easier to be organized and have things where I can find them quickly. I still do have post-it notes and folders though sitting on a table I use as a writing area and that’ because I still like to write long hand sometimes when working on a story especially if a thought or idea hits me and I can’t be at my computer for some reason.

    I use Evernote to backup things via IFTTT, other than that I use dropbox. Good suggestion to backup in at least 3 places. Thanks for the reminder. @sheilamgood at Cow Pasture Chronicles

    I really should back up in more than one place, makes perfect sense. I’ll also check out Evernote. Thanks 🙂

      Hi Rosa, you’re welcome. Can’t ever have too many places to have as back ups 🙂

    I haven’t tried Evernote, but I have all the same organization problems with my writing. I’ll have to give it a go. Happy a-to-z

    I hear great things about Evernote, but haven’t gotten in there to play around yet. I can really get lost exploring tools and then not have time to use them all!

    I like Evernote for bookmarking websites — I haven’t explored all of its functionality yet.

    I’m blogging about productivity for creative people this month. Happy A to Zing!

      Hi Yvonne, it’s definitely a great thing to have to bookmark websites. I save the ones that have to do with the story research I do. That’s awesome. Will check out your posts when I get the chance. 🙂
