Waking up in the morning, performing the usual morning routine and at some point during your day you sit down and attempt to write out that idea you had the other day. Except, you just don’t remember it anymore. Keeping track of what to write, inspiration for a post or keeping track of anything is just too time consuming of a task in itself. So how do we make this process easier? Simple. We as bloggers, business owners or even if you do this as a hobby, we take advantage of all the free products and services available to us.
One of the most popular items in this arena is Evernote, with features like being able to reach your information from any computer or smart phone via being stored on a cloud Evernote is a great product to use for everything from taking notes, to do lists, pictures for your blog posts, web pages you want to draw inspiration from or even link to, and best of all a great way to collaborate on posts with others.

It does feature the ability to see earlier versions of your notes, organize them by using tags and the ability to pin important notes to the top.
