Nevertheless there are tips and tricks I’d like to share: features that are a little hidden and ways of thinking about Evernote that might not be intuitive.

My intention is to share these ideas in small, bite-size blog posts, starting with the basics and working my way up.

So, don’t worry, you are not “using it wrong” – I think that the key to using Evernote is to find a use that works for you, whether it is photographing and cataloging your wine, keeping a copy of the notes your kids bring home from school, storing business cards, remembering where you parked your car, whatever.

Start using Evernote to make your life easier for something specific, and then expand from there.

Next up: what are notebooks?  What are tags?  Why  would I use one or the other?
