Using Evernote Web Clipper to Save, Organize, and E-mail Posts

webclipper

I am a huge fan of Evernote. After years of taking notes on random sheets of paper at every meeting, I made the switch to Evernote last year. I love that I can organize my notes in notebooks and search for key words to find notes.

I was a huge fan of Google Reader. I like some of the features in Bloglovin’, but I was miss being able to e-mail a blog post. I would often e-mail a post to myself for later.

I often find posts like this one or this one that I want to share with my coworkers. Pinterest is great for keeping things for yourself, but some posts are worth sharing via e-mailing to others. Some people have a button to allow you to e-mail a post, but that usually just sends a link. The Bloglovin' mobile app sends just a link. I discovered last week that I can use Evernote to e-mail full blog posts from Bloglovin’. It made my week!

The first thing you need to do is download the Evernote Webclipper for your browser. It will add a little button with an elephant on it. This picture shows Firefox. The button went to the other side on my Mac, but it still served the same purpose.

If you are signed into your Evernote account, you will see this box. You can chose to clip the whole page, part of a page, or just the address. You will also be able to choose the notebook and add any tags to the post.

That’s it! It is saved as a file in your Evernote account.

The note looks just like the website.

From here you can share it via e-mail or other social media.

I have found some fantastic resources through blogs. E-mailing the webclip this way makes it easy to save, organize, and share posts.

How do you save your favorite posts?

  1. Thank you so much for sharing! I was just dabbling in Evernote tonight. I'm ashamed to admit that I signed up for an account in 2009 and haven't utilized it AT ALL. After reading so many wonderful posts about Evernote and some encouragement from Courtney at Polka Dot Lesson Plans, I think I'm ready to get my feet wet!

  3. That's a very cool idea to use Evernote in that way. I've had the app for over a year and hardly use it. Thanks for sharing another way to use it!

    I actually use Feedly to read blogs. I follow in Bloglovin' but don't like how the blogs are set up. Feedly can be used on a computer or they have an app for it. I LOVE it! You can save entire posts to read later (which I do often) or email posts directly from the site! You can customize the way you want to read your feed too. Check it out...I think you'll love it!
