It is easier to be organized if you start it at the beginning, which I did not do of course. When I started a few years ago I was collecting and downloading but did not really know what sort of organization I needed. I also did not know what documents would prove to be important.
I do have a back up system but that needs to be organized too. I would like to do away with paper but I am reluctant to let it go. Mainly I worry that no matter how many backups I have, in various places like Dropbox, Evernote and Google Docs, I fear that they can, somehow, disappear in to the electronic void.
I have to work on that and devise a system that works best for me. I have read many articles by various authors on how to and I think I will take a bit of each and devise my plan. But the problem is which will work best, I guess it is just trial and error.
I have started culling my bookmarks, some of them are dead and some of them I can easily find with a search. The small and unique ones and those hard to find will make their way into a folder that I can find with ease. This sounds easier that it will prove to be. I will allot some time every day to get started on these projects.
