Evernote is a program to easily collect your ideas using words, pictures, or web clippings.
In Evernote, subtopics can be created to form an easy way to store a collection of things you want to remember. For example, if you were interested in Aquariums you might make a page that held all the information about which aquariums were within 50 miles, their websites, and possibly some reviews you found on them.

Why is Evernote better than Micosoft Word or another note taking program?
Not only is Evernote compatable with your computer, it can also be used on your smart phone or tablet. If you have the program on multiple devices, your notes will be synced over all the devices. With this, you will always have access to all your notes.
