Bridging the gap between paper and technology
Have you been able to ditch the paper and go digital?
I’ve tried a gazillion times to ditch my paper notebooks and go digital. I have all the devices at my fingertips and know-how to do it. I have my computer, an iPad, a smart phone, and a cloud with plenty of storage space, but I can’t seem to go “All Digital.”
I know what you are thinking, “Um Stephanie, aren’t you a tech blogger?”
Why yes, yes I am I love all things digital, except when it comes to my editorial calendar and life planning.
I am a diehard not taker – which is odd because I hated taken notes in college – but I love to do it now. I love lists – I have lists for everything, to-do lists, grocery lists, what to do lists, what to buy for the house lists, and what to buy for lists, and even a photography wish list. I have so many I could go on forever, but I won’t.
So as you can see I haven’t been able to abandon my notebooks just yet, but with the help of Moleskine, my iPad and Evernote I might have just found a happy medium.
Evernote and Moleskine have married together a new solution that just might work for me and anyone else that can’t abandon the paper notebook.

Check out the video from Moleskine about the notebook.
I’ve misplaced my notebook several times and have l launched in complete panic mode because it has all ALL of my most important notes inside – it would be great to have a virtual copy of those notes in case I do actually leave it somewhere.
Now all Moleskine has to do is merge this technology with their Moleskine Tablet Cover and I’ll be one happy notebook-obsessed-list-taking tech blogger!
