Added new gallery views so that you can review sketchnotes easily

One of the reasons why I like sketchnotes is that they’re easy to flip through and review. I’ve uploaded many of my sketchnotes to Google+, and you can click on an image there to start flipping through it.

I’ve also added a gallery view here on sachachua.com. http://sachachua.com/blog/sketchnotes/ is a quick slideshow of sketchnotes, and you can click on the selectors near the top to jump to a sketch or stay on one. What do you think? Are the transitions too fast or too slow?

Meetup sketchnotes: The Publishing Side of WordPress, Andy McIlwain

The Publishing Side of WordPress(Click on the image to view a larger version.)

At today’s WordPress Toronto meetup, Andy McIlwain shared tips on brainstorming, scheduling, and sharing blog posts in WordPress. The lively discussion brought out lots of other tips, too.

The key thing I took away from the talk was that Evernote is awesome and that I should definitely look into it more. I’m also looking forward to checking out Content Rules for more writing tips and Plinky.com for blog post ideas.

After the talk, I had a fascinating conversation with Robin McRae and Ann Brocklehurst about information architecture and personal knowledge management. Lots to think about. Glad I went!

Check out Andy’s blog post below for slides and full notes. Looking forward to the next meetup!
