Advice on how to start logging

I've had access to Campaign Logger from the start and have tried to implement it into my game sessions several times but the chaos in my GM head during a session always made me forgot to take notes. I am now trying once more and now I want to succeed.

I tried to find some advice / resources but I couldn't really find any. I seemed to remember an set of emails with some sort of tutorial at the very beginning but I can't find any in my archive.

So I am starting in a home brew campaign that has been going for four years so to ensure I got some info available I made the following entries:
logger.PNG

Now I got the following questions:

- is this the best way to set up tags for use during an upcoming session?
- what tips can people give on how to best enter info (structure etc)
- is there an example I can import to have a look at how someone else's done it (I believe there was an example if you first login to Campaign Logger)

Any help is appreciated.

A publicly available log for a small sample campaign could indeed be a big help for newcomers. And since there is no single correct way to plan a campaign, maybe even several samples using different styles?

Would anyone happen to have a sample log they would be willing to contribute for common good?

My logs are all in German... I could translate them during christmas maybe, when I have any free time.

german is not a problem for me so. I guess it would work even if you can't read the text due to the tagging system (ie just being able to see how you use them).

You need to enter that in every post but it allows you to group log entries to a particular session correct?
You do not even need to add it manually, as you can use the prefix (or suffix) field to automatically add that kind of information to every log entry you create during the session.

Yes, I use the Prefix for that. And yes, it is for grouping!
