Create NotebooksOnce you’ve downloaded Evernote to your computer, create Notebooks for the different areas of your life that you’ll use Evernote for. For example:
- DIY projects
More Than a BookmarkHave you ever found some valuable information but then got distracted and lost the page? You tried unsuccessfully to re-trace the process that took you to that information. Unfortunately, your efforts didn’t work.
This happens even to the most experienced online researchers. That’s one reason why Evernote’s Web Clipper for Chrome or Safari is so valuable. Click it when you want to quickly save pages for later use. It’s perfect for clipping entire blog posts, links, and images. Choose which Notebook to file items in, and add Tags within the Web Clipper without even opening Evernote.
Favorite Your Favorite Tags and NotesYou may find yourself pulling up certain Notes over and over. You can apply ‘Favorite’ to those Notes, which will give you access to them quickly. Once a Note is a Favorite, it’s moved to your Shortcuts in the top left of the screen so you can get to it faster.
Evernote On the GoYou never know when you’ll find information that you might want to use later. But if you install the mobile app on all your devices, you’ll be able to use Evernote while on the go.
You can even use your phone to take photos that can then be added to Notes. Just click the camera icon at the top of the app and start shooting photos. Those Notes with images will show on both mobile devices and computer.
Your Productivity WeaponYou’ll find Evernote saves your time and energy. It even suggests other resources that are similar to those you’ve saved in your Notebooks. That’s a real time saver.
Evernote will likely become indispensable to you and help you to be a consistent blogger. Read How to Be a Consistent Blogger for help with blogging consistency.
