  1. Hello, I learned about Mural.ly last week in an Evernote discussion forum on mind mapping software. I have been searching for a mind mapping program that works with Windows, integrates with Evernote, and would be useful for my purposes (planning various writing projects). Mohiomap is fantastic, but currently only maps the content available in Evernote notebooks. That magical trifecta has continually eluded me, but Mural.ly is easily the best program I've tried so far (thanks again to Ebusinesstutor for the suggestion!). I clip a great deal of content to Evernote, so I love being able to access all my notes and move them right onto the mural boards. AWESOME!! Since Evernote seems to be in the business of granting wishes and Mural.ly is asking for user feedback, I’d like to take this opportunity to float the idea of some kind of Mohiomap/ Mural.ly merger – MohioMural?? My Mural.ly experience has been extremely positive thus far, but I am struggling with one issue that doesn’t pertain to the Evernote integration . . . if anyone can point me in the direction of a more appropriate venue (perhaps a forum for Mural.ly similar to this one?) I’d certainly appreciate it! I’ve perused the site and couldn’t find a suitable spot for posing questions. I sent a help message through my account, but I’m not sure if it reached anyone. Thank you to Evernote and Mural.ly for their dedication to innovation!
  2. Thank you, Garland! I think Mural.ly will be absolutely perfect for my needs!
  3. Mohiomap is exactly the kind of mindmapping software I have been looking for! It is wonderful for organizing my notebooks in Evernote, but I would love to be able to use it to brainstorm and plan out my writing projects. I use Windows and have tried several different types of mindmapping software, but I keep running into the same problem; either it's not compatible with Evernote or it doesn't work for my needs. There seems to be a lot of great products out there for Mac users, but not so many for Windows. In a similar vein, I was disappointed when I realized I couldn't apply the strategy described in John Castle's great post about using Evernote for writing because he was using a Mac. http://johncastlewriter.com/2013/08/21/evernote-a-writers-second-brain/ So I would definitely like to cast my vote for new Mohiomap features that would allow for regular mindmapping in Evernote! ConceptMind looks like the only other option available for Windows at the moment, but I'd rather hold out if possible because Mohiomap would be perfect with those upgrades. Thank you for the fantastic product!
  4. Hello! I am looking for Evernote book recommendations as well as any suggestions/insight/thoughts and other resources that might be useful to an Evernote hoarder who's ready to make a change.Just when had given up on becoming an organized and productive member of society, Evernote came into my life and renewed my hope. I'm so close . . . ... and yet so far! Truth be told, I'm starting to flounder and I need an intervention before my bad habits take over and ruin what could have been a beautiful relationship. The notebooks are piling up. It's starting to feel like a special edition of Hoarders. My episode of Evernote: Buried Alive deals with several issues. I constantly create new notebooks because I've forgotten about the old and don't know how to consolidate. Should I stack? Is stacking a notebook akin to creating "sections" of the same notebook (like OneNote)? I'm hanging on by my tags right now since they allow me to find past treasures buried deep in my hoard; however, I'm afraid that as helpful as they are, the tags are enabling me to continue living in squalor because they create the illusion of having my act together just because the place isn't condemned. I dig tagging and try to tag everything, but I'm inconsistent about naming tags, which just adds to the pile. I also question my clipping techniques - what's best? URL? Article? Full Page? Selection?? These are just a few of the million questions I have. I'm excited by all the tools and features in Evernote and I want to learn more about what's in the trunk, Skitch, and all these other programs. I love how you can share notebooks with anyone (even if they don't have Evernote) and I am eager to start collaborating with my clients and editors, but that requires me to get my act together first. I feel like I need to establish a working system before I fully dive in. I know that there's a million helpful resources here and elsewhere online, but that's part of my problem. Information overload! I believe that I really need a book where everything is organized in one cohesive unit for easy reference. I'm thrilled that there's so many Evernote books available, but now I'm faced with another dilemma - which one(s)?? I have read some reviews on Amazon, but I'd really appreciate any recommendations/insight/resources that people out there would be willing to offer. Despite my organizational challenges, I'm a pretty fast learner so I don't want to go too basic - I'd like to find a book or books that delve into the using Evernote with other applications. Since I'm already imposing, I might as well go full tilt and give you my Evernote book/resource wish list. Hopefully others out there can also benefit from any feedback this post generates.
