9 at 9 - An Interview with...

I am pleased to be able to share another interview with a fellow blogger - this week's blogger in the 9 at 9 hotseat is Tiffany from Sweet Phenomena - another wonderfully diverse blog that you really need to check out!

1. Tell us a little bit about your blog:  
Sweet Phenomena started as a homeschooling blog and a way for me to keep track of our homeschooling progression.  Then I found out how far you could go and what you could do with blogging, and since I love to write, I hit it hardcore!  I now blog about homeschooling, product reviews, life, food, ending domestic violence, and hold giveaways.

2. How long have you been blogging and what do you love about it?  
I have been blogging for about a year and a half.  I love the creative outlet I have in blogging, and how it’s something that is my own.  I control it, I make it look the way I want, I write about what I want, it’s all mine!

3. Who is the person or group behind the blog?  
Tiffany Manley – Super-awesome wife and homeschooling mom extraordinaire!

4. What hobbies/interests do you have?  
I enjoy cooking and baking, writing, reading, and playing MMOs.

5. If you could invite 4 people (real or fictional, living or dead) to a dinner party, who would you invite and what would you serve? 
I would invite Winnie the Pooh, Harriet Tubman, Dr. Seuss, and Tim Burton.  I’d serve bacon-wrapped green beans, bacon-wrapped venison, Asian BBQ chicken, meatballs, yeast rolls, and Symphony toffee and almond candy bars.  We’d top it off with a few lemon drops.

6. I can’t live without…  
Air?  No, really, I suppose I’d have to say my husband and my daughter.  They’re my support system; we’ve been through a lot but the three of us have learned to lean on each other through it all.

7. Something people would be surprised to know about me is…  
I play Lord of the Rings Online just about every single day, and I love gadgets and stuff.  I’m a total nerd.
