Are you seeing this? 👀 Yesterday, I started the migration process to move my followers from #Mastodon to the #fediverse account that I’ll be using from now on, which is:

If everything went as expected, you are now following me here.

🌺 It’s the 50th anniversary of the Carnation Revolution in #Portugal. Democracy and freedom in all their manifestations are values that should never be taken for granted and, therefore, should always be celebrated.

Heads up. I’m doing some experiments here and for the next few days (possibly weeks), I’ll be reading and replying to #Fediverse posts alternating between my two handles: and

🌞 Good morning from Porto. Just got access to #Evernote’s new Import menu. Time to have some fun!

📝 I had to go back to #Evernote Tasks.

I was pretty happy with my system running on Google Tasks, but there are so many new things happening to Evernote Tasks that I had to go back.

Not too long ago, I wrote about moving my tasks from app to app and how good it is to rely on a system instead of an app. In other words, it means that I can basically make it work anywhere.

Yesterday I mentioned that Evernote had made the full-page Tasks available to many of us, including me, and that I would use it for a while before expressing my opinion. I also hinted to the possibility of tasks coming to the calendar. Well, as illustrated by the tweet below, that one was quick.

There you have it. I’m back to Evernote Tasks and will be sharing my insights with you along the way.

As an increasing number of businesses and organizations adopt the ActivityPub protocol, it will gain momentum and eventually reach a point where there is no going back. Welcome to the Fediverse, Ghost:

Yesterday, my neighbor told my wife that her son came across one of my videos on YouTube and was surprised to find out that the person next door was a YouTuber ☺️

📝 I have more thoughts on the latest Evernote update.

A couple of days ago, I shared my initial thoughts on the new features in version 10.85.4, but there’s more to show you.

Let’s start with the first topic I talked about in video, the calendar. I was so focused on demonstrating the creation of events not connected to Outlook or Google that I missed a subtle new aspect of the Evernote Calendar.

In a recent conversation with Federico Simionato, I told him that I believed everything with dates on Evernote should be in the calendar. Have you watched that video? Do you recall him telling me he was already discussing that with the team? I think the new calendar may be setting the stage for that.

If you go to the Evernote Calendar and take a close look at the My Calendars section, you’ll see that there is a sub-menu under Evernote Calendar (image below). For now, the only item there is Events, but because My Calendars is in the plural, I think we’ll soon see other items there. Maybe Tasks? You never know.

Another addition related to the calendar is the Events item in the three-dots menu next to New Task (image below). It’s great to see that menu getting attention. Let’s hope they keep making it more useful. For example, one other option I would like them to add in the future is the creation of a new note from one of our templates.

Finally, there’s the new full-page Tasks. I haven’t covered this in the video because I’ll be using it for the next few days before sharing my thoughts. But there’s one new detail I’m pleased to see there.

You are already aware of my stance regarding Tasks as an integral part of the fundamental building blocks of Evernote, namely notes and notebooks. So, I believe it is evident that I am delighted to see the addition of the Notebooks filter.

What about are you? Anything in particular you liked or that you are still missing? I’d love to hear your thoughts about this update.

📺 How to customize the Tiny Theme Archive page on

In a recent episode of my podcast, I told Manton, the creator of, that I would prefer if the blog categories on the Archive page were horizontally displayed, instead of the current list. To my surprise, the solution arrived a day after I published the video.

When Otávio finished listening to the episode, he wrote a code (below) to do just the task. Now it’s my turn to give back to the community. The video below shows how you can use Otavio’s code to customize your own Archive page.

Otávio’s code:

{{ define "main" }}
<div class="archive">
	<h2 class="p-name">Archive</h2>
	{{ if templates.Exists "partials/microhook-archive-lead.html" }}
	{{ partial "microhook-archive-lead.html" . }}
	{{ end }}
	{{ $list := ($.Site.GetPage "taxonomyTerm" "categories").Pages }}
	{{ if gt (len $list) 0 }}
	<div class="archive-categories">
	        {{ $sortedList := sort $list "Title" }}
	        {{ $length := len $sortedList }}
    	    {{ range $index, $element := $sortedList }}
        	    <a href="{{ $element.Permalink }}">{{ $element.Title }}</a>{{ if lt $index (sub $length 1) }}, {{ end }}
	        {{ end }}
	{{ end }}
	<div class="full-archives h-feed">
		<h3>Full Post List</h3>
		{{ $list := (where .Site.Pages "Type" "post") }}
		{{ range $list }}

		<p class="h-entry">
			<a href="{{ .Permalink }}" class="u-url"><span class="dt-published" datetime="{{ .Date.Format "2006-01-02T15:04:05-0700" }}">{{ .Date.Format "Jan 2, 2006" }}</span></a>:
			{{ if .Title }}
			<span class="p-name"><b>{{ .Title }}</b></span>
			{{ end }}
			<span class="p-summary">{{ .Summary | truncate 150 }}</span>

		{{ end }}

{{ end }}
