Digital Note Taking

I’m starting again on an experiment to see if I can move completely digital with notes and to stop using paper. I don’t think I will completely remove paper d making notes in a book. Sometimes it’s not appropriate and also at times it feels slicker to just use a Pen and paper.

I had tried a couple of years ago to make the move but never really committed due to practicality and also gaps in technology. I had tried to use Evernote which I am a fan of but they had started to introduce barriers with features that were free but now charge for. Also this was a personal account and never felt right. However when my last job switched to office365 I started to use OneNote more but struggled with the switch,

However having started a new job a few weeks ago and agile and smart working being encouraged with hot desking it’s time to give it another go and with the ability to work remote it’s time to give it another go. I have access again to One note but armed with an IPad which also has a data sim, I’m able to freely capture notes digitally when its not easy to use my laptop. I have started to capture copies of my physical notes as well as scans. I need to give some thought to my note structure though as this is something I find different in OneNote compared to Evernote.


This site is a place for me to put my thoughts on life, techno and sport. There will be things that interest me and also make me laugh. I’m not expecting to update this a lot but my plan is it will help me improve my thought process and how I write these to help me better do this in my day job. Plus maybe somewhere to put a few things I want to have a go at making and creating.

Which is in IT and has been for the last 20 years. The first 10 of which were tech support and the last 10 have been management, project delivery and service management.
