Today’s Thoughts From Rick (Using A Dedicated Gmail Account for Note-Keeping):
The past several days I have been exploring the various note keeping applications and thought I had settled on Microsoft OneNote; then, the light bulb went off. Back in August, I had posted an article I had composed titled, “Quick Tip: How To Turn A Gmail Account Into A Powerful Note-Taking And Note-Keeping App“. Folks, what I posted in that article about using a separate Gmail account (from your normal email account) as a note-keeping and note-taking app really does work. The key is to use this separate account for note and document storage only; not for email. The most important thing in doing this is to use the tagging feature in Gmail to categorize your notes. You can let your imagination fly by using all the powerful features associated with Gmail (especially the search function). In the end, I created a cross-platform note-keeping and note-taking app that works hand in hand with all the Google services, with 15GB of storage; ALL, for FREE. I even prettied up my creation with a theme (that is already built into the Gmail platform). The real beauty is that I can send anything to this Gmail note-keeping account from my phone, my browser and from my main email.
