Ahhhhh I can finally talk about my AMAZING project I've been working on! I got what seemed to be one of those "too good to be true" emails. I was being offered the chance to make a Microsoft OneNote trip book and video to be shared with Microsoft and their site visitors, and in return I'd get the software, an 8 GB HD Flip and a tripod for the Flip, plus payment when I finished. I knew the company who sent it and I only had to send them my address and my top 5 cities from an attached list so I went for it. Within the week I had my goodies in hand and my city - New Orleans!
A friend of mine talked up OneNote like crazy, he uses it for everything! I was excited when I got my new netbook and I got it use OneNote for myself. It is SO easy to use and perfect for storing all forms of information. You can add pictures, videos, audio, internal links, external links, files and more all in one spot. It really was perfect for creating my New Orleans trip book. I was able to keep everything together - no scrambling to find printouts, search for addresses, files or anything. I organized my tabs- places to stay, eat, visit, shop, things to do. Each of those tabs could also have pages to get even more organized, I didn't get that far, but next time we go to New Orleans I think I'll add more details into my trip book!
Please make sure you head on over to OneNote TripBook and check out my New Orleans trip book! I'll give you a sneak peek:
