Okay, Evernote isn’t exactly a site. It’s a download. But it does offer extensions for all your favorite web browsers. Most importantly, though, it’s an insanely helpful tool that you should really consider using. Especially if you are “organizationally challenged” from time to time, like me.
Evernote allows you to capture all your ideas, thoughts, notes, and more…all in one place. And all for free. And you can access Evernote even when you’re offline. And from your phone. And their web clipper lets you annotate directly from the web. Impressed yet?
I’m not sure why I dragged my feet getting started with Evernote. That’s probably one of the warning signs that you need Evernote, actually. All I know is that I’m using it now. A lot. And now that I’m using it. I like it. A lot.
When I need to take notes in a meeting. When I’m taking notes at a conference or workshop. When I find a site I want to blog about. When I get an idea for a classroom project. I can create notebooks to keep everything organized and notebooks within those notebooks, too. And I can tag items, as well.
Evernote is VERY well-designed. And very easy to get the hang of. I’m pretty sure once you start using it, you’ll be glad that you did. You might not be able to use Evernote to literally “remember everything,” but you’ll come close!
