UPDATE: And we have some winners. I’ll be contacting Andrew, Rachel and Kris to get their contact info and will send them the small Moleskine journals (after I finish the screenprinting). Thanks to everyone who participated!
After some Twitter friends started begging for my extra Moleskine journals that were not given away at Christmas, I decided maybe I should use them as a contest prize. I plan to design a custom Gocco screen print for them.
What I want in exchange, are your comments about how you take notes. When I translate a Hebrew passage, I create a notebook which contains all the details and notes of my translation. When I read a book, I put Post-It™ notes in the margins and write my thoughts. But I also love to carry around mini Moleskine journals for keeping track of expenses, photography details, book finds, and newly made contacts. I do take notes with my laptop and iPhone too.
So, what kind of note-taking preferences do you have? Digital or paper? Do you back up notes on Evernote? Do you scan paper notes for archive purposes (I do)? What computer software or iPhone apps do you use? What kind of physical paper or notebook do you prefer?
I’ll keep this contest open until January 15th, and then I’ll pick a few comments at random to receive the Moleskine journals.
