Thursday, December 19, 2013 - The Marriage of Blogging and Evernote

This is probably the most excited that I've been about a new tool in a long time.  Once in while a tool comes along that sends my mind reeling about its possible applications in the classroom. is just that kind of tool. It is built around the idea of publishing blog posts directly from Evernote by simply adding the tag "published" to any note. It's that simple!

To get started, just visit and setup a new account using your Evernote credentials. There is acollection of super clean themes from which to choose. will auto-create your first post which provides you with a simple set of instructions to get you started.

Because posts are created within Evernote, you can post from wherever you access your Evernote account.  This immediately gets me thinking about students posting from their smart phones, from wherever they happen to be - journaling from a museum field trip, live-blogging a science experiment, or sharing lecture notes. The possibilities are almost endless.

You can take a look at a blog that I created on to highlight history resources. I plan on experimenting with it as a live-blogging platform from FETC in January. Stay tuned.
