Pastelink is a web service that allows you to anonymously publish text with hyperlinks enabled. You can also create your own files containing ideas, bookmarks, conversations, and then publish it in the form of a shareable hyperlink.

Further on, you can save the respective hyperlink in your Dropbox account, for instance, to access it across multiple devices and further edit it anytime you want.

If you are familiar with Google Keep or Microsoft’s OneNote, you’ll have no problem using Pastelink. Unlike the two mentioned note-taking tools, Patelink is only available as a web app.
