If you’ve been around the blogosphere long enough, you’ve probably come across many different people talk about their workflow for blogging, which a lot of times includes using Evernote. I am one of those bloggers, but I have yet to find a great system or workflow that works for me. Because I have not deliberately tried to come up with a strategy to efficiently utilize the tools I have, I tend to not write as much as I would like or as much as I am capable.
My workflow is imperfect, and I am still learning. For example, not too long ago I wrote this in Evernote:
As I went back and took a look at this note, I remember the time and where I was, but I have no idea what happened just after.
My system is a failing system, it is broken.
Yeah, I’ll work on it, I know I need to. After all, John says we need to fail more often, right?
No system is going to be perfect, and failing or having something break every now and again is OK if it means we learn from it.
I did have a pretty good laugh trying to think of all the different things I could have been thinking at the time, but I couldn’t remember the idea for the life of me. I’m sure it was epic, had some scriptural and theological importance, and probably had a ninja or two, but I thought maybe I’ll leave it up to you to finish my train of thought.
