Get Organized Online

Tired of being disorganized and unproductive? You’re not alone, I’m sure. I have so many ideas throughout the day, but no good way to keep track of them all. While surfing the net, I come across a great website, but no easy way of saving the link and making notes about it. I do research for a project, but do not have an efficient way to organize my notes. Well, times are a changin’.

Meet your new organizing friends: Diigo, WorkFlowy, and Evernote.

Diigo (Annotate, Archive, Organize): This website really comes in handy when you want to keep track of the websites you visit. You can bookmark any website you visit, highlight sections of a webpage and keep handy notes right there on the page. You can also assign custom tags to your bookmarked websites for quick searching. Here’s a video that shows highlights of this service:

WorkFlowy (A Better Way to Think): If you’re an ideas person, you’re going to love this site. WorkFlowy lets you create customs lists and notes within lists and notes, within lists and notes. You create a main topics list (eg. Projects, Goals, Thoughts) and within those topics create lists with notes attached to each list item. If you like, you can add additional lists within a note and add notes for that list, too. Here’s a quick video to give you an idea of how it works:

Evernote (Remember Everything): The creme de la creme of online organizing services, this website let’s you keep track of just about everything. Got lists? No problem. Got links? No problem. Got documents? No problem. Just create folders and create notes within those folders, or drop documents or pics into them. You can even upload stuff from your smart phone. Here’s a video that shows some of the cool features of this service:

Best of all, these services are free (at the time of this posting).
