Whole lotta stuff to talk about

When I first started blogging, I read advice somewhere to never, ever apologize for failing to blog--that it was just boring.

I agree, yet I am breaking that rule.  I am afraid if I do not say something, readers will this this blog has become just a mechanism for promoting my weekly newspaper column, Family Tech.

That is not so.  The blog predates the column, and likely will go on should I ever stop writing the column.  The intent is to have the blog cover those issues more technical then the column would need, or those things not oriented to technology for the family.

Of course, looking for a job takes up a lot of my time.  And too, I've have been busy with a special project, a video documentary.  More about that in the coming weeks, ironically in a Family Tech column.

So many things have been tagged in my Evernote for blogging.  Let's touch base on Evernote itself first.

They have posted their twenty-second podcast.  Their twenty-first excited me when CEO Phil Libin mentioned that Due Dates would soon appear in Evernote.

They have added Site Memory, letting bloggers add a button letting readers capture content directly to Evernote.  I just took a look at it, and adding it to the Blogger platform I use is not straight forward.   They promise integration soon with major blog platforms, so when it comes to Blogger, or I have more time to fiddle, it will appear here.

And the Evernote Windows client gets better and better.  I am using 3.5.7 now, and finally you can easily tag multiple notes, and move multiples to new notebooks etc.  Not sure how long this ability has been there; I just know it wasn't earlier and is appreciated.

And their Chrome add-on now shows you relevant Evernote notes when you search Google.  That is way cool.

Thanks for sticking with me during the month and half this blog was mostly links to my column.  More things for my fellow Evernote, Dropbox, cloud, iPad, and gadget fans here soon.
