TUESDAY TIPS: Post-It Notes and the Blog Wall

Apologies for the late post, and for being MIA for the last few weeks. I've been a little OCD about the design of the site, and slacked off on the actual content.

I'm a visual person. If something isn't in front of my face, chances are I'll forget it. So when Evernote and Post-It Notes teamed up, I found a visual way to keep track of what I wanted to write.

The Wall

Any time I have an idea for a blog post, the idea gets written down on a Post-It Note and stuck to the wall. When I'm ready to sit down and write, I pick one of the notes.

From there, I can either snap a photo of the Post-It in Evernote for iOS, or just start writing. Generally, if I know I'm going to need to research the post, it will go into Evernote (since Evernote is great for collecting research information.) If not, I'll just stick it to my laptop and type away.

Friends are welcome to add to the Post-It Blog Wall, as well. If they think I should write about something, they can stick the idea on the wall.

Since the notes are on the wall, right in front of me, it also serves to remind me to write.

Are you a visual person? Or are you able to keep all your ideas in your head?
