Taking a long hard look at my Evernote Notebook organization–zillions of notebooks, lots of tags–I decided to clean house and re-organize. Not only that, I wanted to make publishing Evernote Notebook entries to my blogs easier.

The re-organization, inspired by these blog entries in a similar vein, allowed me to greatly consolidate my Evernote Notebooks and tags.

Try out if you’d like to quickly blog your Evernote Notes!

Step 1 – Make Bucket Notebooks for Work, Family, etc.
Keep this list short and sweet. Mine, for example, is:

In regards to, I like to email notes into Evernote Notebook and tag it appropriately…such as:

Subject: Awesome AppSmash Example @blog #saacte13

That email will end up in the blog EvernoteNotebook and be tagged saacte13 which means it will automatically get published in the blog…lots of applications for this in the classroom!

Step 2 – In the body of each Evernote entry, add a generated tag following this approach:

1. go to 

2. generate 100 random passwords 

3. paste those into a note. for me, this is one of my “index” notes, so it gets that keyword in the title to indicate it is a “master” list 

4. every time you need a code, you just put a short description next to it, and then copy/paste the code into all of the related notes. here’s what mine–i’ve made up the descriptions–looks like:

kus6e – Facebook Picture 

3erzx – Furniture inventory

dowu8 – Technology inventory
rwwef – Technical Stuff
tjkk1 – Favorite quotes 

5. it’s easy to remember what code goes with what set of notes, because it is all in your master note 

This step can take awhile, but is well-worth it since you’ve now made your notes in your “bucket Notebooks” searchable without adding a whole bunch of tags to Evernote (which I hate).

I immediately ended up with about 20 generated tags that were allocated. I organized mine according to Family, Work and sub-sections underneath that. Again, it doesn’t really matter where the note ends up since you can easily find it with a search of your random generated code.
