First 30-Day Blog Challenge: Day 1: Why Amanda's Alcove?

I found a 30-Day Blog Challenge on a Facebook page I follow. I've decided to start it and this is the first post. This challenge starts with your Blog Name. I decided to discuss why I chose the title that I did for this blog. I chose Amanda's Alcove because I wanted something different so I decided to think of synonyms for corner and alcove came up and I decided that would work perfect. I also wanted something that would work for a variety of blog posts, and I felt going with the corner/alcove idea would work well for that. This blog will be for multiple purposes. I look forward to connecting with you. Thanks for reading!
