I just posted something on Facebook, something I drafted on draft and something that I should have posted here first.
It is all about journaling and subsequently blogging. Here is the post:
I do not know you but I have been a fan of journaling since 2008 when I bought my first #moleskine. Before, I was mainly using blank sheets of paper and of course my PC…
Since, I have used many notebooks and I have also tried so many apps that I can’t remember how many.
Today, I am using two types of tools:
– my notebook which is not from Moleskine but from a German brand named #Leuchtturm1917. I really like the quality even if I sometimes wonder how and why someone started a notebooks company in Germany during WWI.
– Apps, I am an Apple user. As my friend Rafael says, I am an happy slave of this technology. I love it because it works. The ubiquity between devices works perfectly well now and I am still fascinated to see how something that I typed on my iPad appears almost instantly on my Mac and my iPhone.
My favourite tools are:
– Evernote in which I have now too much notes (10,000+). It begins to be messy and I am now calling it “ever forget”.
– Dayone is a wonderful journaling app. I love the look and feel of it plus the fact that I can keep track of photos, etc.
– Draft is very nice on iOS. I used it to write this.
– Curio is now one of my favourite tools on Mac. I love it because it is a visual system that goes beyond mindmapping which it does perfectly well
– XMind for advanced maps
I really love the power of the tools but I love the feel of paper, I love pens and stationery and I strongly believe that we are not digital being, we are analogic. I want to quote someone who said, “in a digital world, don’t forget your digits.”
