I missed this story earlier, but I’m glad I came across the post on Evernote’s blog. The video is a short interview with Janine Vangool, designer/publisher of Uppercase Magazine, and how she uses Evernote to help her put the magazine together. I’ve been toying with the idea of getting deeper into Evernote because I hear so many good things about it.
I have the app on my iPhone, but I’m not using it anywhere close to its potential apparently. Since I’m pretty much using Uppercase as my model and inspiration for getting my own magazine off the ground, I can’t help but want to wonder what I’m missing out on with Evernote.
I worked as a freelance designer for many years and grew tired of designing for other people’s content. I had always wanted to publish my own books and magazines and based on the success of my blog, I decided to pursue the dream. I just crossed my fingers and hoped that a small percentage of my readers would subscribe to a print publication. It took off more quickly than I ever thought it would! These days, I run the magazine full time and have “retired” from client work. Evernote is the brain that stores all my ideas.
The rest of the interview is fairly extensive along with some helpful links on how to manage Evernote the way Janine does. Needless to say, I’m sinking my teeth into this post starting now and not coming out until I’m a veteran practitioner.
