The name of the blog is based on Amanda’s experiences working night jobs. It was always after work that everyone dropped their “work” face and the most interesting discussions ensued. Anyone who has worked night jobs knows that such discussions are rarely linear and the topics discussed very random. After Hours is not a news blog, a daily journal or an overly intimate look at Amanda. It is her ongoing, after-work discussion where random thoughts become essays.

About the design of this blog
Only dedicated readers will have made it this far
Amanda believes in giving credit where it is due. The hard work of others deserves to be noted.
One day Amanda hopes to totally create her own look but until she’s that inspired, she will rely on others to help her along. Every time the look of this blog changes, so will these credits.
