This is a system I figured out… today! Using the Notes app on my iPhone alongside Notion on my computer to keep track of blog post ideas for this very blog. How meta.
Check out this video (7min) where I walk you through the steps:
Here’s what’s covered:
0:11 Using the iPhone Notes app for capture blog post ideas on the fly
1:34 Using SizeUp to quickly resize and split windows
2:00 Transferring ideas from Notes app into Notion
2:30 Doing a quick word search before migrating the idea (to make sure it’s not a duplicate)
3:07 Why not just use the Notion app on iPhone?
3:35 Notion dashboard, including next posts to draft and recent videos shared
- I use the Notes app on my iPhone to jot down blog ideas on the fly
- I sync this to my computer via my iCloud account
- When I’m at the computer, I transfer the ideas from Notes into Notion (my master blog post tracking system) then delete the Notes
- I can still refer to the list in Notion via the iPhone app whenever I want, but using the Notes app as a rough thought-space means you can play around with ideas and capture them super quickly
If you spy a blog post in that list you’d be keen to see next, let me know!
