Digital Sticky Notes - Guest Blog Post

Guest Blog Post by Maria Burnham, Library Media Specialist

For many years now, I've been a big fan of the Post-It Note.  Big, little, bright, or that familiar dull yellow, I just love to use sticky notes to help remind me (and others around me) what's going on.  

Sometimes, though, a physical sticky note doesn't work.  With my laptop, they can fall off or I just plain run out of room to put them...

Consider using the Stickies App found in your Applications folder.  Open this app and the sticky note lives on your computer screen and not on your desk.

To make things even easier, consider having the app automatically open upon login.  To set this up, right click (or some call it secondary click) on the app while it's in your Dock.  Under "Options" choose "Open at Login."  Now you will always see your virtual Post-It Notes.
