  1. This is great! I just watched all of your evernote videos, and found them very informative – almost as if I’d taken a seminar. I have Evernote and had fallen out of the habit of using it, and in fact, was considering dropping the subscription. Guess I won’t do that now!

    Thanks again for all of your knowledge that you are transferring – it’s hugely appreciated. Love your blog and your thoughtfulness.

    1. Hi Cate – Yay! I told myself if one other person benefited from them, they’d be worth doing.

  2. Thanks very much for the Evernote information. I knew of the program but have never used it. That might change after reviewing your videos and comments.
