thestormtrooper 3 Posted May 27, 2013 Share Posted May 27, 2013 Hi, I've been using Evernote for quite a while but never had the need to post a question. However... I'm looking for a few opinions... Currently I have a Journal and also a To Do List within my Evernote, these are my two main used notes. My current simple setup is as follows: To Do List: A single note, it's really just a list of important things I need to sort that day or at some point. I just use one single note and then use the score out font character to score something out once I've completed it. One annoyance is that on the android app it doesn't have this score out characters option in the fonts!? No a huge problem though as I either delete or alter on the laptop later. Journal: For the last 6 or 7 months I traveled around Central America, while travelling I've always wanted to keep a small journal of what I've been doing each day etc. I used to always struggle to do this with pen and paper but since I've started using Evernote this has become easier and easier. I really just keep a short post from each day, sometimes only a sentence or two... other days several hundred words. I think they call it micro blogging but sometimes I get a bit carried away if something interesting has happened. While keeping these notes in my Journal I have just used a single note called: Central America. I just checked and it's around 20,000 words. All of this is in a single note the same style as my to do list just with a lot more text. This brings me to my question... I have this system where effectively I only use two notes to record stuff to do and a journal. The journal covers quite a few months, I could shorten it into a month at a time? or country at a time? or should I use an individual note for each day? I want to keep in the habit of taking notes even when I am not travelling. So quite simply... is there benefits to individual notes? or just long single notes? Any help advice, feedback or tips are appreciated. Thanks. Link to comment
