I recently took my 16 favorite blog posts and curated and edited them into a 23 page eBook on job searching. I am giving it away as a free promotion on Facebook in November, and then will be selling it on nook and Kindle for a small fee. I was inspired by The Sales Lion who blogged about creating eBooks using the Anthologize plugin. It was really easy and empowering and worth it even if it doesn't result in any income!

Thanks for sharing your story, Gini. Last year, I quit my job to start my own company. It's really inspiring to hear the stories of other women my age (making an assumption based on LinkedIn) who have made it happen, even if it's in a different industry. It really means a lot to people like me so thanks again!

@allisonralston @KaryD I look at all the information I grab off the web through a GTD (David Allen's Getting Things Done) lens. If I want to read something, I clip it though Evernote and then I "process" it- read and decide if it's something I want to keep for another purpose, especially if it has text that I will search when working on a project or an answer I might need. If so, I store it in an Evernote "reference" notebook. If it's an interesting article that I'd want to make public to my coaching clients and others who visit my website, I store it in a public library on Diigo and tag it (career advice, productivity, etc.). I moved to Diigo when there was talk about Yahoo selling Delicious. I like having both Evernote and Diigo. You can make Evernote notebooks public, but they're a little clumsier than a service like Diigo.

@DavidAPhillips @ginidietrich I created a notebook called !nbox (the ! makes sure it is always the first notebook listed) where I store all my notes and web clippings. Then, every few days to once a week (depending on what I'm working on), I process my notes and move them to the notebook that makes sense (project based ino, to do, reference, someday/maybe etc.) and add any tags that will help me find it later. We haven't talked that much about tags yet here, but they are also wonderful.

@deleted_6629_lisagerber How could I have forgot to mention the voice memos? They are so great!

I love Evernote! It has saved my life as a coach, business person, PhD student and person. I set up GTD style so that I use the Stacked Notebooks to set one up for each of my Areas of Responsibility and then projects within each. I do it a little different, but took the general idea from this blogger in my GTD LinkedIn Group: http://hanamidesign.com/blog/evernote-gtd-setup/

The text in photo recognition is the best. When I am walking around NYC, I take pics of flyers and bus schedules and then they are stored as reference material. I also take pics of recipes in magazines rather than ripping the paper out.

I also used a shared and coded notebook of 90 web-clipped articles and PDFs. to write a white paper with a colleague and intern. I couldn't have imagined doing it so easily without a tool like Evernote.

I didn't see a lot of mentions of the desktop client in the comments. I've used on Mac an PC and they are great.
