Title: Writing Tip-Tagging Your Notebook
This is a link to the other site I found on this style:

The second style of marking your journal I came across was on “Bullet Journals”. This is also an interesting way to mark your journal, but it is more “in-depth” than the above way. As I searched this style, I discovered there is a lot of information on this one. There are many different ways to do this one, depending on what you want to use it for. There are some listed that are for writers, with many different variations on this style too. There was a website that is listed as: Bullet Journal, and appears to be a popular site. This style can be used with binding that has slip-in pages, or tied type binding. It looks to me like this style actually could be used with any type of binding.
This is the website I mentioned above:
These are two other sites I found to be interesting:
Article: Bullet Journals for Writers
Article: Book Journaling Tips (Make Writing Easier and More Fun)
This is an example of a different type of binding:
As I mentioned above, be sure to use the right kind of notebook (specifically the binding it has).
If you have a different way of marking your journal let me know, I’d love to hear about it!
