How to add an entry to your journal on quotev

Customizing Your About Me, Journal Entries & Posts/Replies On Groups

There is a toolbar for your about me, journal entries and posts/replies on groups I will go through each tool bar and teach you how to use them! I'll be going over the tools in order. There are tools that exist for journal entries and about me's but not for creating stories so keep that in mind. If you can't find the tool bar there should be a tiny arrow at the top of your About Me/Journal Entry/Post on groups click that, the tool bar should slide down.

The first two tools are fount and sizing of text, if you chose a font don't use more then one. I understand that you might want to break up the text by using different fonts or font-code (like color code) your About Me but it gets hard to follow with all the different fonts in one area.

Next sizing of text don't go too small.

the five letters B, I U S and then a Tx these are all text formats except the last one (I'll be going into more uses of these in the writing tips chapter which will have tips for writing journal entries, fiction and nonfiction) B is bold it's called for your attention, I is soft it's dream like, U is underlined and it's also calling for your attention but is less heavy it has something to stand on, S is praying for you to forget that it ate a bag of potato chips for breakfast Tx is to stop using that format and to start typing with normal text again

The next five, Align left, Center, Align right, Justify and insert horizontal line. the first four change where your text is on screen

this is just a bunch of random text copied and pasted over and over again so I can show what justify looks like. This is just a bunch of random text copied and pasted over and over again so I can show what justify looks like. This is just a bunch of random text copied and pasted over and over again so I can show what justify looks like. This is just a bunch of random text.

Don't use these unless you're writing like a poem here's a "poem" I wrote using align left and right. otherwise just keep using align left. The fifth one insert horizontal line put's a grey line

NEVER put this in the middle of a chapter (Yes I did so I can show what it looks like) I would use this to end a chapter (fiction and non fiction) and in nonfiction like this to separate topics. I did this in the groups chapter to cleanly end it while switching gears.

  • just don't use bullet points just don't

decrease indents and increase indents these are large spaces they're kinda used like this. I made this scene up.

happy to be wrapped in a warm blanket she smiled curling into it sleepily

"do you think she's okay, like what in the world was she doing out there?!"

she rolled over ignoring the conversation between the two officers

This is subscript and This is superscript. the "and" is normal text

undo arrow is the one pointing left, redo arrow is the one pointing right. Link and un-link, if you want to link something press the link button. If you want to link to something but already wrote out the text highlight the text you want to be a clickable link then click the link button and paste in the URL then press okay then un-highlight the text it should be blue. Un-link stops you linking the text and to start typing with normal text again.

image, be careful with this feature a couple months ago I deleted half my bio because I didn't know what I was doing. so choose an image first then go back to the Image Info tab and mess around with the width, height Vspace and Hspace.

Vspace and Hspace indicate the amount of horizontal and vertical space to put between the image and surrounding text. Hspace sets the amount of horizontal space between the image and surrounding text.

The text in the preview box means nothing it's not some secret code sadly. AND make sure your cursor (the blinking line as you type is a cursor) is not in the middle of your bio otherwise the photo might end up deleting text you've spent quite a while typing up. I honestly don't want to test it.

YouTube puts a youtube video on screen that people can watch on Quotev without leaving the website. I would recommend you set width to 120 and height to 150 otherwise it can feel too big or too small and again don't put this in the middle of your text otherwise the video might end up deleting text you've spent quite a while typing up.

create div container, I don't know much about this feature I used it to create a simple outline by clicking box and then okay after that I did the same thing but chose right scroll box.

table This makes a list within boxes

paste as plain text, If you copied text from a different website which used different font you can paste it as plain text using this tool

check spelling if something is spelled wrong and you click this tool it will give you a list of corrections find the one you need and click replace. If the word it finds is a name and you want it to ignore it click ignore

maximize Just maximizes the screen if you click it again it minimizes (goes back to normal)

about me has all these features. Your journal doesn't have the option to add an image. Stories doesn't have text sizes, fonts, images (in the tool bar), div containers or tables. Posts/replies on groups don't have text sizes, fonts, images, div containers or tables either.

This took OVER four hours to write. I'm tired and just want to relax I might edit this tomorrow sorry if it is terrible

How to add an entry to your journal on quotev

One of the most important elements of your profile on your Quotev account is your 'About Me' (or a/m) section. Something that can help you design your profile to look neat and organized is a layout! Layouts not only help organize your account but can also help your account look the way you want it to. When you use layouts, you also need to make sure that you keep the credit on the layouts (if you're copying one from another account). Read to find out some more information about layout accounts!

All About A/M Layouts

A/M layouts are meant to be simple and short. They can help define your aesthetic, include images (links and actual pictures depending on the layout), and can direct whoever is on your profile to your lovers account, your journal entry, and any other link! Some accounts that I really like that do A/M layouts include: LAYOUTS NAVI (one of my personal favorites – not a paid sponsorship), layouts 01, layouts, and layouts (also has journal layouts!).

All About Journal Layouts

Journal layouts are meant to say more about you and your account. You copy and paste them into a journal entry and just start writing! These layouts can be detailed or simple, include a BYF, and add links and videos within the entry! Some accounts that I really enjoy for journal layouts include: journal layouts and journal layouts !!

I hope that you found this chapter helpful in finding layouts that you like for your journal and a/m! If you have anything else that you would like me to add, or feature your account, I would be more than happy to add you in!

meryl,​​​​​​ formerly known as charlie, is a user on quotev dot com with the url @/AND0NUTS and a participant of many dramas, including the honeebugg raid. she’s otf but chances are that she’ll most likely softblock you if you’re not poggers enough. 


history [ ]

meryl’s first account [ ]

meryl originally joined quotev dot com sometime in march to april of 2019 as a joke, since she’s seen many people talk about this site and it’s quizzes. the first url was fucking ugly, i can’t exactly remember what it was but it had a bunch of z’s in it. meryl made quizzes and stuff but one day, she forgot the password to that account and it was forever gone. even the posts were set on following only so she couldn’t see any of the shit she posted. sob

meryl’s second account [ ]

meryl moved on to a new account which had yet another ugly url that i’m too ashamed to put on here. the account was made on may 6th 2019, and it was the start of a new era for this dumbass. meryl met many people and became friends with them somehow. she proceeded to start a journal series called “cooking with water sheep” which had like two fans. it also started a bunch of inside jokes like cruncheauuu and baguette. the show was canceled by meryl herself because she lost ideas to continue it. not to mention that she promised an actual animated series smh smh where is it

lmao yeet [ ]

this is where meryl’s “fame” began. god i hate using this word considering the fact that we’re talking about a quiz site. so there was this account which went by the name lmao yeet, the founder of the “lms if you’re a fucking dumbass” series. they met meryl, and gave her shitposting lessons. and at some point, meryl landed on a B next to the rodrick heffley parody account on the funniest q accounts tier list. meryl’s humor strangely decreased over the next year, perhaps it was because lmao yeet left the site for good. this caused meryl to start using content from reddit.

meryl’s true form

new url era [ ]

after a while, meryl was able to change her url, thank god, and she changed it to @/nooksimp because she’s tom nook’s real wife and gf after all. this is a continuation to the “new era” of meryl’s quotev dot com crusade. or as i like to call it, the “new url era”. meryl made even more friends, to the point this caused her to be online frequently, someone please help her. as much as she hates quotev, she’s still on it and it’s almost been three years because it’s almost 2021 as of writing this holy fuck.

the honeebugg raid [ ]

this is a big part of the story, pay attention everyone. this person with the url @/honeebugg who is gone for good, posted a journal entry which was just them being a dick to literally half of quotev dot com. this caused people to be outraged, and someone thought of an idea to spam the comments of the journal with emojipastas, lyrics, and a bunch of other shit. meryl’s dumbass participated in this, of course, and this thing went on for HOURS. little did everyone know, honeebugg turned off the notifications for their journal, so they honestly didn’t care if we spammed. we literally reached over 10k comments if i’m correct. meryl and her two other friends formed a duck council as a part of the drama. the purpose of the council was for. ife[kw;lfmgr; i honestly don’t remember but it was definetaly for stopping the honeebugg incident. someone alerted everyone that honeebugg wasn’t listening this whole time, so people went straight for their posts. and that’s when the q admins acted and suspended meryl and many others participants. meryl’s friends were angry about this but she didn’t actually care. meryl found it funny and considered it a break from this hellhole .. even though she returned a day later on a different account.

the carrot busters [ ]

the carrot busters is a group in which meryl is in, it isn’t really active though. it was made after the @/sunkittyisapoop drama which was weird oh my godwhat. the group served as a party for everyone who participated, but then it turned into friend group. i think?? meryl made a lot of friends there so like. it was mostly for stopping future dramas but that was a complete failure. 

idk what i should call this [ ]

but like. one day, this one problematic account came out of nowhere and started disrespecting triggers and stuff. my friends got angry so they began going after them and shit. the q admins looked at the situation the opposite way and decided to delete my friends. two thankfully came back but like. if the admins are reading please bring back @s1mpg0d please *on my knees* iefbiefewfblwab

the new (current) account [ ]

meryl was tired of her account because she wanted to be atf, so she moved on to @/AND0NUTS which is her current account. also she never actually became an atf account istingotnrt;bontrwia’. i don’t really know what to write rn, that’s the whole story for now. she moved accounts and lived happily ever after

Just wanted to let you guys know that Blood (Affinities Book 1) will be published on February 7th!

Currently, the book is available for pre-order on Amazon, so if you were unable to read it on here and you want to, that’ll be the cheapest option.

If you want a paperback, it’ll be for sale on Amazon on Feb 7th. If you can’t order from Amazon, it should be on Book Depository 6 to 8 weeks after the 7th (so probably sometime in late March/early April), and that site ships almost anywhere.

If you want a signed paperback copy, you can buy it through my Patreon (I’ll make a post about it next weekend).

Here are the prices (in USD)

Amazon Kindle (e-book): $2.99

Amazon Paperback: $14.99

Patreon (US): $15.00 (this will include a month of access to all of my stuff on Patreon, so if you've been wanting to read "Nero's Dominion" and "Chromosome" this might be the best deal for you)

I don’t think I’ll be able to ship signed copies internationally at this time since the shipping cost is outrageously expensive, but if you really want a signed copy and you’re willing to pay for it, feel free to message me here or email me and we can try to work something out! I'll probably do some giveaways in the next few months as well and at least one of those will be open internationally.

Blood is also on Goodreads now so make sure to add it to your reading list. And if you’ve already read it on here you can give a rating/review. Amazon reviews are super helpful too, so if you do buy the book, a review would be greatly appreciated 🙂

I’ll let you all know if there are any promotions/discounts in the future! Thanks so much again for your support with this series. I’m so excited for these books to become real 🙂 If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask!

A reflective journal is a place to write down your daily reflection entries. It can be something good or bad that has happened to you that you can self-reflect on and learn from past experiences.

A reflective journal can help you to identify important learning events that had happened in your life. The events include your relationships, careers and personal life. By writing a reflective diary, you can find the source of your inspiration that defines you today. A reflective journal also provides a better understanding of your thought process.

Reasons to Write a Reflective Journal

  1. To understand the things that have happened.
  2. To reflect on why it happened this way.
  3. To align future actions with your values and lessons learned from your past experiences.
  4. To share and get your thoughts and ideas out of your head.

How to Reflect Effectively

According to Schön, there are two types of reflection, one during and one after an activity or event.

Reflection In-Action

When you are thinking about or reflecting while you are in an activity, you are using reflection in-action. Some reflection include:

  • Experiencing
  • Thinking on your feet
  • Thinking about what to do next
  • Acting straight away

Reflection On-Action

You can do reflect-on-action once the activity has finished based on what you can remember about it. Step back into the experience, explore your memory and retrieve what you can recall. Reflect and understand what has happened and draw lessons from the experience.

  • Thinking about something that has happened
  • Thinking what you would do differently next time
  • Taking your time

Examples to Reflect Effectively

Before the Experience
  • Think about the things that could have happened.
  • What are the things that you feel might be a challenge?
  • The things that you can do to prepare for these experiences.
During the Experience
  • Observe what is happening at the moment, as you make a particular decision.
  • Is it working out as expected? Are you dealing with the challenges well?
  • Is there anything you should do, say or think to make the experience successful?
After the Experience
  • Describe your thoughts immediately after, and/or later when you have more emotional distance from the event.
  • Is there anything you would do differently before or during a similar event?
  • What are the takeaways from this experience/lesson?

How to Write Reflectively

Use the three “W”s to write reflectively. The three “W”s are What, So What and What next.

What (Description)

Recall an event and write it down descriptively.

  • What happened?
  • Who was involved?

So what? (Interpretation)

Take a few minutes to reflect and interpret the event.

  • What is most important / interesting / relevant / useful aspect of the event, idea or situation?
  • How can it be explained?
  • How is it similar to/different from others?

What’s next? (Outcome)

Conclude what you can learn from the event and how you can apply it next time.

  • What have I learned?
  • How can it be applied in the future?

I love working with these prompts and there are so many ways you can use these!

With just one word, there’s a lot of freedom to do just about anything – you can interpret that one word any way you’d like!

Here’s a couple of ideas for how you can use prompts to spark your journal pages:

  • Use them as a list for things to draw or sketch
  • Use the prompts to find fitting quotes that you like
  • Write about your thoughts and feelings related to the prompt in hidden journaling as a background layer.
  • Use colors and textures that fit the theme, mood, and feeling of a word

There are truly no limits, so while I might have listed some ideas here and there for different words – it is COMPLETELY up to your interpretation!

Sometimes it is fun to challenge yourself to do something new, even if it’s not a prompt that you are immediately drawn to doing.

Accountants and bookkeepers often use T-accounts as a visual aid to see the effect of a transaction or journal entry on the two (or more) accounts involved.

To learn more about the role of bookkeepers and accountants, visit our topic Accounting Careers.

We will begin with two T-accounts: Cash and Notes Payable.

How to add an entry to your journal on quotev How to add an entry to your journal on quotev

Let’s demonstrate the use of these T-accounts with two transactions:

  1. On June 1, 2020 a company borrows $5,000 from its bank. As a result, the company’s asset Cash must be increased by $5,000 and its liability Notes Payable must be increased by $5,000. To increase the asset Cash the account needs to be debited. To increase the company’s liability Notes Payable this account needs to be credited. After entering the debits and credits the T-accounts look like this:
  1. On June 2, 2020 the company repays $2,000 of the bank loan. As a result, the company’s asset Cash must be decreased by $2,000 and its liability Notes Payable must be decreased by $2,000. To reduce the asset Cash the account will need to be credited for $2,000. To decrease the liability Notes Payable that account will need to be debited for $2,000. The T-accounts now look like this:

Journal Entries

Another way to visualize business transactions is to write a general journal entry. Each general journal entry lists the date, the account title(s) to be debited and the corresponding amount(s) followed by the account title(s) to be credited and the corresponding amount(s). The accounts to be credited are indented. Let’s illustrate the general journal entries for the two transactions that were shown in the T-accounts above.

When Cash Is Debited and Credited

Because cash is involved in many transactions, it is helpful to memorize the following:

  • Whenever cash is received, debit Cash.
  • Whenever cash is paid out, credit Cash.

With the knowledge of what happens to the Cash account, the journal entry to record the debits and credits is easier. Let’s assume that a company receives $500 on June 3, 2020 from a customer who was given 30 days in which to pay. (In May the company had recorded the sale and an accounts receivable.) On June 3 the company will debit Cash, because cash was received. The amount of the debit and the credit is $500. Entering this information in the general journal format, we have:

All that remains to be entered is the name of the account to be credited. Since this was the collection of an account receivable, the credit should be Accounts Receivable. (Because the sale was already recorded in May, you cannot enter Sales again on June 3.)

On June 4 the company paid $300 to a supplier for merchandise the company received in May. (In May the company recorded the purchase and the accounts payable.) On June 4 the company will credit Cash, because cash was paid. The amount of the debit and credit is $300. Entering them in the general journal format, we have:

All that remains to be entered is the name of the account to be debited. Since this was the payment on an account payable, the debit should be Accounts Payable. (Because the purchase was already recorded in May, you cannot enter Purchases or Inventory again on June 4.)

To help you become comfortable with the debits and credits in accounting, memorize the following tip:

Here’s a Tip

Whenever cash is received, the Cash account is debited (and another account is credited).

Whenever cash is paid out, the Cash account is credited (and another account is debited).

An accounting journal entry is the method used to enter an accounting transaction into the accounting records of a business. The accounting records are aggregated into the general ledger, or the journal entries may be recorded in a variety of sub-ledgers, which are later rolled up into the general ledger. This information is then used to construct financial statements as of the end of a reporting period.

There must be a minimum of two line items in a journal entry, though there is no upper limit to the number of line items that can be included. A two-line journal entry is known as a simple journal entry, while one containing more line items is called a compound journal entry. A company may use a great many journal entries in just a single reporting period, so it is better to use a larger number of simple journal entries than a smaller number of compound journal entries, in order to clarify why the entries are being made. This is useful when journal entries are being researched at a later date, and especially when they are being reviewed by auditors.

Whenever you create an accounting transaction, at least two accounts are always impacted, with a debit entry being recorded against one account and a credit entry against the other account.

The totals of the debits and credits for any transaction must always equal each other, so that an accounting transaction is always said to be “in balance.” If a transaction were not in balance, then it would not be possible to create financial statements. Thus, the use of debits and credits in a two-column transaction recording format is the most essential of all controls over accounting accuracy.

In a smaller accounting environment, the bookkeeper may record journal entries. In a larger company, a general ledger accountant is typically responsible for recording journal entries, thereby providing some control over the manner in which journal entries are recorded.

Format of the Journal Entry

At a minimum, an accounting journal entry should include the following:

The accounts into which the debits and credits are to be recorded

The date of the entry

The accounting period in which the journal entry should be recorded

The name of the person recording the entry

Any managerial authorization(s)

A unique number to identify the journal entry

Whether the entry is a one-time entry, a recurring entry, or a reversing entry.

It may be necessary to attach extensive documentation to the journal entry, to prove why it is being recorded; at a minimum, provide a brief description of the journal entry.

Special Types of Accounting Journal Entries

A reversing journal entry is one that is either reversed manually in the following reporting period, or which is automatically reversed by the accounting software in the following reporting period.

A recurring journal entry is one that repeats in every successive reporting period, until a termination date is reached. This can be done manually, or can be set up to run automatically in an accounting software system.

Example of an Accounting Journal Entry

Arnold Corporation sells a product to a customer for $1,000 in cash. This results in revenue of $1,000 and cash of $1,000. Arnold must record an increase of the cash (asset) account with a debit, and an increase of the revenue account with a credit. The entry is:

Debit Credit
Cash 1,000
Revenue 1,000

Arnold Corporation also buys a machine for $15,000 on credit. This results in an addition to the Machinery fixed assets account with a debit, and an increase in the accounts payable (liability) account with a credit. The entry is:

Debit Credit
Machinery – Fixed Assets 15,000
Accounts Payable 15,000

The Unbalanced Journal Entry

If a journal entry is created where the debit and credit totals are not the same, this is called an unbalanced journal entry. If you attempt to enter an unbalanced journal entry into a computer accounting system, the error-checking controls in the software will likely reject the entry. However, if you create an unbalanced journal entry in a manual accounting system, the result will be an unbalanced trial balance, which in turn means that the balance sheet will not balance. The following journal entry is unbalanced; note that the debit total is less than the credit total. In such cases, you must correct the underlying unbalanced journal entry before you can issue financial statements.

Debit Credit
Machinery – Fixed Assets 10,000
Accounts Payable 15,000

Journal Entry Fraud

It is much more common for accountants to commit fraud through the use of journal entries than through the use of such common transactions as recording supplier invoices and creating customer invoices. The reason is that these more common transactions have a system of controls built up around them that is designed to detect a variety of issues. Conversely, there are fewer controls over journal entries, which makes it easier for someone to create a fraudulent transaction. These transactions are particularly difficult to spot if the amount recorded is considered immaterial, in which case auditors are unlikely to spot the transgressions.

Double-entry bookkeeping, in accounting, is a system of bookkeeping so named because every entry to an account requires a corresponding and opposite entry to a different account. This lesson will cover how to create journal entries from business transactions. Journal entries are the way we capture the activity of our business.

When a business transaction requires a journal entry, we must follow these rules:

  • The entry must have at least 2 accounts with 1 DEBIT amount and at least 1 CREDIT amount.
  • The DEBITS are listed first and then the CREDITS.
  • The DEBIT amounts will always equal the CREDIT amounts.

For another example, let’s look at the transaction analysis we did in the previous chapter for Metro Courier (click Transaction analysis):

1. The owner invested $30,000 cash in the corporation. We analyzed this transaction by increasing both cash (an asset) and common stock (an equity) for $30,000. We learned you increase an asset with a DEBIT and increase an equity with a CREDIT. The journal entry would look like this:

Debit Credit
Cash 30,000
Common Stock 30,000

2. Purchased $5,500 of equipment with cash. We analyzed this transaction as increasing the asset Equipment and decreasing the asset Cash. To increase an asset, we debit and to decrease an asset, use credit. This journal entry would be:

Debit Credit
Equipment 5,500
Cash 5,500

3. Purchased a new truck for $8,500 cash. We analyzed this transaction as increasing the asset Truck and decreasing the asset Cash. To increase an asset, we debit and to decrease an asset, use credit. This journal entry would be:

Debit Credit
Truck 8,500
Cash 8,500

4. Purchased $500 in supplies on account. We analyzed this transaction as increasing the asset Supplies and the liability Accounts Payable. To increase an asset, we debit and to increase a liability, use credit. This journal entry would be:

Debit Credit
Supplies 500
Accounts Payable 500

5. Paid $300 for supplies previously purchased. Since we previously purchased the supplies and are not buying any new ones, we analyzed this to decrease the liability accounts payable and the asset cash. To decrease a liability, use debit and to decrease and asset, use debit.

Debit Credit
Accounts Payable 300
Cash 300

6. Paid February and March Rent in advance for $1,800. When we pay for an expense in advance, it is an asset. We want to increase the asset Prepaid Rent and decrease Cash. To increase an asset, we debit and to decrease an asset, use credit.

Debit Credit
Prepaid Rent 1,800
Cash 1,800

7. Performed work for customers and received $50,000 cash. We analyzed this transaction to increase the asset cash and increase the revenue Service Revenue. To increase an asset, use debit and to increase a revenue, use credit.

Debit Credit
Cash 50,000
Services Revenue 50,000

8. Performed work for customers and billed them $10,000. We analyzed this transaction to increase the asset accounts receivable (since we have not gotten paid but will receive it later) and increase revenue. To increase an asset, use debit and to increase a revenue, use credit.

Debit Credit
Accounts Receivable 10,000
Services Revenue 10,000

9. Received $5,000 from customers from work previously billed. We analyzed this transaction to increase cash since we are receiving cash and we want to decrease accounts receivable since we are receiving money from customers who we billed previously and not new work we are doing. To increase an asset, we debit and to decrease an asset, use credit.

Debit Credit
Cash 5,000
Accounts Receivable 5,000

10. Paid office salaries $900. We analyzed this transaction to increase salaries expense and decrease cash since we paid cash. To increase an expense, we debit and to decrease an asset, use credit.

Debit Credit
Salaries Expense 900
Cash 900

11. Paid utility bill $1,200. We analyzed this transaction to increase utilities expense and decrease cash since we paid cash. To increase an expense, we debit and to decrease an asset, use credit.

Debit Credit
Utilities Expense 1,200
Cash 1,200

All the journal entries illustrated so far have involved one debit and one credit; these journal entries are called simple journal entries. Many business transactions, however, affect more than two accounts. The journal entry for these transactions involves more than one debit and/or credit. Such journal entries are called compound journal entries.
