Well who would have thought beautiful weather would hinder my progress with this project? It’s March in Central New York. Typically still too cold and gloomy for anything outdoors. I thought this would be a great time to brush up on my technology skills. Wrong! The weather has been delightful so I’ve been very neglectful of my computer this week.
When I saw the suggested tools for this week, I promised myself to finally dive into LiveBinder. And I will. But for the sake of getting this post done, I’m going to blog about my experience with Evernote and Pinterest.
I signed up for Evernote this summer when I was taking a class at SU. I appreciated its convenience as a note-taking tool, but I never quite figured out to use the webclipper tool. I haven’t used it since that class, although I have been grateful for the fact that I could access those class notes from any computer. I have the app on my phone and I think I just need to remember to use it. Even without the webclipper, Evernote is a handy place to keep notes.
Pinterest took some time grow on me. I can truthfully say that I don’t share the addiction that I hear so much about, but I do enjoy it. My light bulb moment came when I was browsing an online school supply catalog and found some fabulous bulletin board paper. I knew I would want to use it sometime and was wondering how to remember where to find it when I noticed my little “pin it” button in my tool bar. Ah ha! I could “pin it” in January and easily find it in August when I’m planning my new bulletin boards. I think my favorite boards are the school idea and fitness boards. I’m not sure what it says about me that I rarely see anything I like on the fashion boards. I mean, is my taste that far out of whack with the rest of the world???
I’m looking forward to seeing what the rest of you are “pinning.” Now I’m going to introduce myself to LiveBinber…
