  • Tracking what I'm doing

    Week to view diaryI’ve traditionally used a paper diary to record my daily work activities. At our team meetings, I then use this to report what I’ve been doing in the last week.

    I leave the diary on my desk at work, so one problem is when I work at home, I need to try and remember the next day what I did.

    I considered another blog for this purpose, but all I need is somewhere private that I can record short notes. Even better if they get timestamped.

    The two possible candidates that I’m trialling are Google Notebook and Twitter.

    Twitter kind of makes sense, except that I generally don’t want these notes to be public, so if it isn’t possible to keep them private then Notebook will probably win out.

    We’ll see if I prefer online to offline, but at least my typing is easier to read (and faster to enter) than my handwriting :-)
