Note taking is as old as the world itself. Trying to stay on top of hundreds of things at once is a task that not many people have the ability to cope with, and needless to say that keeping notes is fairly inexpensive, yet one of the most productive things we can do. Whether it’s writing down the list of things we need to do, or important points from a talk we have just attended, keeping notes help us remember the most important things when we most need them.
WordPress as a blogging platform could be considered one big notekeeper in itself, but not all of us see it that way and not all of us want to see it that way, which is why a select few developers have gone out of their way to publish WordPress plugins for keeping notes, in several different categories. For the most part, using these plugins is going to extend the functionality of your WordPress publishing platform as a platform that you can also use for direct content editing, though most importantly — to keep notes.

WP Notes Widget is an amazing notes keeping widget that will add a separate panel to your WordPress Dashboard that you will then be able to use as an separate content publishing platform, only for notes. If you plan on making announcements with sticky notes-themed notes, then you can take advantage of the content displaying widget that comes integrated within the plugin itself. It’s the most simple and effective way of managing your notes on WordPress.
Any blogger or WordPress site owner that’s running a site with multiple writers and editors will find great use for this Dashboard Notes plugin. With WP Dashboard Notes you can easily manage multiple notes that are accessible by your select group of people. You can make notes private, or you can make all notes public. List different types of notes that you want everyone to reader; never again will you have to chase each writer and editor individually, just leave them a note!
3. Plugin Notes
Plugins in many ways are the lifeblood of WordPress, and while web development is not something all of us are able to learn that easily, perhaps keeping notes about the things we are building and learning will help that process a lot. If you are already a web developer, though, then Plugin Notes will make it easy for you to keep track of your development progress and the kind of ideas you’re getting as you’re developing, yielding more to the productive aspect of your time spent developing.
4. Note Press
Note Press is an extremely easy to use note system for the WordPress Admin panel. Creating to-do lists, leaving instructions for clients, collecting code snippets or collaborating with other admins are just a few of the uses for Note Press. Unlike other note plugins, Note Press keeps thing extremely simple by using features familiar to all WordPress users. Simply click on the Note Press admin button and your notes are all there listed by date.
After installing Notely, whenever you will want to publish a new post or a page, or perhaps a product, you will be able to use a new meta-box within the right-hand side of your content management page. This new meta-box will then allow you to save notes separately for that particular piece of content.
