I have a lot of notes (all on Google Drive right now) and would like to one day organize them into my own personal wikipedia. While being on Google's cloud is nice (I can quickly search key words), it's still a hassle to transition from one topic to another. For example, if I am reading through my notes and a term or concept pops up and I forgot what it is, it would take a while for me to find the exact document and section where I explained it before. It would be nice if such a platform can solve that issue either by:

  • Either allow me to quickly generate a link to the concept (like on wiki where you can click on link for a term/concept)
  • If no link, a roll over pop up or something would be nice as well, or some other way that gets me to the relevant information

Also, would be nice if this wiki is accessible on the internet like my Google drive is accessible. Finally, since my notes reflect hundreds of hours of work, I need to trust whoever is hosting my notes. I tend to trust Google with not losing my files.


  • Have you done any research on your own, and rejected anything that you've found? If so, you should let us know what you've looked at and why it was inadequate. If not, you should do some research on your own. – Jeff Zeitlin Nov 27 '19 at 19:46

I highly recommend OneNote. It has a bit of a learning curve and occasional hiccup but it has improved significantly.

I could not find any better solutions for my needs. I can printout pdfs in my notes, drag and drop pictures, file and etc. Also, I can review my notes on my 13 inch iPad and take notes with my iPad pen.

It is free and cross-platform. for my storage, I purchased the office 365 as I get all MS Products (Word, Excel) as well as 1TB of Storage.
