I love Evernote. I use it every single day. On my laptop and on my iPhone. I don’t know how I’d survive without my Evernote.
I love Moleskine. I never use them. It’s a sentimental thing. Who needs Moleskines when you have blogs and Facebook and Twitter and every other possible content creation platform under the sun. I still love Moleskine, though.
TW gave me the Moleskine for Evernote for Christmas. Yay!
But what in the heck was I going to DO with it?
So it sat here on my desk, right next to my computer — unwrapped but not unloved.
When I needed to write notes during a meeting, I used an old notebook. When I needed to tally up some numbers, I used an old notebook. None of those things are right for my Moleskine for Evernote.
Hmm, hmm, hmmm.
Then, around noon today, I was feeling unreasonably grouchy about some stuff and an idea for a blog post popped into my head. But, this was not something I could actually BLOG about. (I know. You’re shocked that there might be something I wouldn’t say online.)
I told my work peoples that I was grouchy and taking a lunch break (not to eat lunch, of course) and ripped open my Moleskine, (not without angst, which I did Tweet/Chatter) and started to write (not without input from Skeeter who is not used to seeing me with a pen and paper in my hand.)
The Moleskine for Evernote is really kind of perfect for what I wrote about. It stemmed some other ideas and it was fun to write something big and important in my notebook.
Then, I had to figure out how to send it to Evernote. It helps to watch the getting started video because I was totally clueless and just took a photo, which I can do with any piece of paper. After about three attempts, I figured it out.
And it is really VERY, very cool.
I kind of wish I had something else big, and important to write about. But I don’t, not right now. I’m sure I will, though. I’m feeling all inspired and happy with myself.
