Eight Reasons I Use Evernote

[Disclaimer: I am not getting paid or otherwise compensated for telling you about Evernote. I just like it, use it a lot, and want to help other folks.]

Maybe a couple of years ago, I randomly heard about Evernote. Since then, I’ve learned there at least eight good reasons for a researcher, writer, teacher, preacher, and family man like me to use Evernote:

  1. You can put your stuff in there. Pretty much anything you write down, type, find online, or need to keep can be saved into Evernote. And it’s easier to later find than using some OS search bar.
  2. You can remember important facts, figures, and info. Applying for a job and need recent success rates? Evernote is the perfect place to file these facts together for quick access.
  3. You can archive all your research. If you read, ponder, and discuss on the web, Evernote is a great place to archive the articles, posts, and sites that interest you the most.
  4. You can spread out your research. Find and open any single article or separate articles into separate windows whenever you need to “spread out” your research to compile it, review it, or write a new piece.
  5. You can type and file all your writing in one place. Eight different folders for various types of writing? With Evernote, you can file and organize these together, saving time and trouble when you search for that old poem about the beetle at the gas station.
  6. You can save pictures, audio, and handwriting. Recent updates include audio, webcam, and handwritten notes. You can even attach pdf’s and pictures. So if you can write it, type it, picture it, or record it, you can file it in Evernote.
  7. You can search it all. The search bar helps you search through certain notebook stacks, notebooks, tags, or whole documents to find just the right article, like which gift your wife wanted for her birthday or how to build the bunk-beds for your kids.
  8. You will use it more than you think. You’ll wonder how you ever worked and filed without it.

There’s lots more I haven’t yet explained, but you can go over to Evernote.com and see that for yourself. They have handy how-to videos that will keep you learning for weeks. Oh yeah, it’s also free (you can upgrade to premium if you need more space).
