A Peek Into The MagicCave (Organization)
« on: April 19, 2015, 06:26:23 PM »
Hello members and guests -

We all are trying to do what we do. But, sometimes the isolation leaves us to solve our own problems. For example, I've always had trouble organizing my BSOs. Finally got it under control. Here's a few peeks -----

Here's how I do it: Start with a 3 ring binder with a self-made slip-in cover. This one says-

"The worst thing you write is better than the best thing you never write." Followed by Snoopy writing, "It was a dark and stormy night." Just some stuff I like.

I group the same subject BSOs into one master notebook. In this case, "Writing."



Then I arrange contents and print an index up for the various tabs. Note, I bought Avery indexes with tabs. I scan the index master tab index so I can print up new ones whenever I revise or update the contents. If I have room and time, I'll print up an index of contents for the spine of the notebook.



Hmmm. Shows some of the crap I've bought. Finally, I put the notebooks on the shelf near my desk for easy reference.



From left to right -- Writing, Traffic, and Early Web (includes Bum Marketing by Travis Sago (the original and the updated course).

If I download a course (PDF) that I think will be helpful to me, I go ahead and print it out. Yes, it's a pain and costs  time, energy, and money. I don't buy so much anymore but I hate to lose track of (read: Hard drive dust) of information that couls help me or that I might need in the future.

Hope this helps somebody else get a little bit better organized.-Magicman

PS. Photos taken with the camera on my $20 "burner" phone.
