Hi Craig,
Welcome to IceInSpace
Don't let Alex scare you, he has spent too many nights alone in the dark

Probably unprofessionally, but most amateur observers I know don't spend too much time, if any, recording what they have seen.
There are notable exceptions. Some even go to length to sketch their views.
I love to be able too but, alas...
Problems being dark adaption for observing does not mix well with illumination required for writing.
Additionally, the more time you spend recording, the less time you spend observing.
Finally, most observations from cataloguers already include their observations, I find myself just trying to see what they saw, and be happy with that.

But if you are insistent, probably you are going to produce a targets list, just make room there for observations.

Additionally, there is here on IIS a forum titled Observational and Visual Astronomy, and it has a sub thread of Observation Reports. Link here

Thanks for posting, and Clear Skies!
