Catalog Anything; Find Everything
With notetaking apps like Evernote or Simplenote, you don’t risk losing anything, especially when it’s all backed up to the cloud. More importantly, you can find what you’re looking for by searching, tagging, and bookmarking. Writing in notebooks keeps your writing safe, but is your referencable?
The first real problem I sought to solve was searching my notebook. All those great ideas, business notes, and journal entries, while safe, were lost in a sea of pages. There isn’t much benefit to putting your important documents into a safe to which you don’t know the combination.

Using Muryō to search the entries in your notebooks
I can’t get away from paper and pen. I still love web apps like Simplenote, but the feeling you have when the ink permanently sets your ideas into the page; it’s almost romantic.
Muryō makes it possible to catalog anything and find everything. The back of your Muryō insert has an indexing section. Use these lines to “tag” your content. Think about it as a way to categorize your entries.

Some of the items from my Muryō index are:
- Journal entries
- Health & wellness
- Writing prompts
- Cool ideas
- Doodles and drawings
- Meeting notes
- Project notes
When you tag and date the pages in your notebook, you’re making your notebook searchable. With your Muryō index as the key, all of your entries become immediately discoverable.
Just line up Muryō with the edge of the page and scribble a little mark on the edge of the page. This scribble essentially becomes a beacon.
Finding everything with Muryō
Once you get used to cataloging your notes, journal entries, drawings, and everything else you put in your notebook, you’ll see how easy it becomes to find everything.
Similar to how you lined up Muryō with the edge of the page to mark it, you’ll do the same to identify the location of your entries. Bend back the pages a bit, and you’ll see your catalog and scribbles line up. Using the indexing system and the dates on pages, you’ll have no trouble finding those old ideas or meeting notes.
Stop using multiple notebooks to keep things organized, write freely and use Muryō to search through your notebook like a web app. Tag your entries, journals, business meetings, drawings, and school notes with keywords by marking the edge of the page. Then, find it later by lining up the catalog with the notebook’s edge.
