Most every blogger that uses Evernote has published their own list. My post cited several from that time period.
Today I was asked how I managed to accrue over 20,000 notes in just over six years, a rate of 285 notes a month.
I started to give a brief list, and then it occurred to me, I can sum up what should go into Evernote like this :
The short version: If you encounter something you might remotely want to see again, it goes into Evernote.
Of my 20,000 notes, if I ever pull back up one half of one percent of them, that is 100 items I needed and was able find, and find easily.
In practice, that percentage is higher, but probably not more than 2 or 3%. Evernote: suggestion, put a read count field into each note, and provide analytics please.
