People are or soon will be returning to school and other activities which have been paused for the summer (or longer). To help them start off right, I asked my readers to share their blog posts about Note Taking.

Whether you’re interested in taking useful notes at school, during business meetings, or on the go; using a digital notebook, or writing simple yet important reminders to yourself, you’ll find valuable tips here. Thanks to everyone who participated!

As you read the posts listed below, please connect with the bloggers on social media, leave comments, and share their posts and this one on social media. Please use the hashtag #POBC in your social media posts.

A former professional organizer, I now eliminate stress for my clients by hosting, monitoring, and maintaining their WordPress sites so they don’t have to worry about security, downtime or performance issues. When I’m away from my desk, I enjoy reading, photography, watching movies, and cooking.

    I’ve greatly enjoyed Julie’s series on this topic, and look forward to cruising around the others. Note taking with photos sounds particularly neat!

    Fabulous contributions this month! I went down a rabbit hole of figuring out how to make handwritten notes searchable on Evernote after reading Chantal’s post. Pretty cool stuff!

      I was amazed to accidentally discover that text in images is searchable in OneNote.
