9 at 9 ~ An Interview with...

It's that time of the week again... when I invite a fellow blogger to have a seat in the hotseat and tell us a little bit more about themselves... this week I'm pleased to have my friend Kecia from Southern Girl Ramblings here to tell us a little more about her blog and herself:

Southern Girl Ramblings

1. Tell us a little bit about your blog:

Southern Girl Ramblings was started in February 2009 when I wanted a fresh start for my blogging. I had blogged on free sites and another domain before then, but I wanted to get more serious about blogging. My blog's focus is mainly parenting, though I also like to blog about being a WAHM, getting healthy and saving money. You will also find lots of product reviews and giveaways offered on my blog as well!

2. How long have you been blogging and what do you love about it?

I have been blogging since 2005, though it was mostly me babbling about my personal life until late 2011. I love that I can have a spot on the web of my very own, to ramble about the things that interest me. I also enjoy making new friends through my blog. I have some great online buddies that I wouldn't have met if it weren't for blogging!

3. Who is the person or group behind the blog?

Southern Girl Ramblings is owned and maintained by me, Kecia. I am a 20-something year old WAHM, born and raised in Georgia. I am a freelance writer and blogger, and have been since March 2008. I have been married for 5 years to James and we have an adorable 19 month old son named Sawyer.

4. What hobbies/interests do you have?

When I'm not blogging, I like to read on my Kindle, go bowling, watch movies, or spend time with my family and friends.

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'd invite Nicholas Sparks, my favorite author; Steve Jobs, to learn more about being a successful business person; Katherine Heigl, because she is an excellent actress and I'd love to be around her infectious personality; and my Papa, who passed away in 2006. I'd probably bake cupcakes for them, since I'm not much of a cook! :)

6. I can’t live without…

My family. Honestly, they are my rock. My husband is my best friend and my son gives my life more meaning than I ever thought a child could!

7. Something people would be surprised to know about me is…

I'm no longer that much of a social butterfly. Though I love to blab on the internet thanks to my blog, Twitter, Facebook various message boards, etc etc, I don't really care to go out often. I used to like to go out, and still do very now and then, but a nice, quiet evening is home is usually perfect for me!
